Bought one the day after the Sandy Hook shooting, it is Blue Label LEO price of $468. No malfunctions at all, but BTF, and weak ejection with low "powered range ammo" with high priced S/D or duty ammo it ejects fine, this is my first and last Glock Perfection Pistol" these are just my observations with 900 -1000 rds at an outdoor range.

You better hug that lady a little tighter, she is a keeper.

Pat, I run a home for unwanted Glocks, I'll even pay the freight if you don't want yours anymore.

I have never had a problem with a Glock no matter the ammo I was running.

The 20 and 21 are great general purpose pistols and the only thing they don't come with from the factory that I'd recommend getting is a set of night sights. It's pretty hard to see the factory sights in the dark because, shockingly, off-white doesn't show up as well as fluorescent orange or green.

As accessories go, I'd buy a SureFire X300. The weight underneath the barrel improves recoil control to a noticeable degree in all Glock models I've shot with the X300 attached and it is, in my opinion, a necessary utility tool. That said, the 500 lumen SureFire X300 Ultra is far too powerful for indoor/close-in use so you need to purchase one of the older 170 (or 200?) lumen models off of eBay.

After that, just add ammo and you're GTG.

For whatever weird reason, 9MM ammo is less available around here, but .40 S&W and .45 ACP are available at every local Wal-Mart and Academy. Wally World has the best prices.

Using non OEM Parts voids your warranty. Just fyi.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

For my purpose, as a night stand gun i am happy with mine. But i am LEO and got it at the LEO price of $468. But if i had paid $550 to $625 for it as some are paying now i would have been real pissed!!! But for 14 rds of 45cal goodness as a night stand gun, i can live with it without making any adjustments or sending it back to Glock. I am just disappointed that this Gen4 21 weakly ejects low powered range ammo. Even at the LEO price, i never would have bought it KNOWINGLY that it was ammo picky. This is just MHO, and oberservation.

thanks for the info on the glock store, as for ammo i reload and night sights arent really my thing, the only gun in the house with night sights is the wifes. with my experiance most shooting in a defense situation is reflexive, mine is also a blue label gun. thanks for the info fellas

I hate to tell you that you didn't get the Leo price. You gut *****.
