Agree. As concealed carry is prohibited in Norway, every gun is for target/practice. If ever have to relay on only one handgun, I would go for the 9mm Glock. We have no restriction on mag. capacity. If so, I would relay on Glock .45-
I had stove pipes and all sorts of jamming, BUT I did use lead bullets (SW) and bad home-made ammo.
Glock is as far as I know the only gun to be left lock & cocked as long as you like without danger of weakening the springs - its ready to go year after year. Just grab it and off you go.
My personal peace today is a 1923 Kongsberg made Colt .45 made under licence in Norway.
With no buffer and jacked bullets = zero problems.
