I've fired a lot of 9mm and .45 through Glocks and can't recall ever having one blow up in my hand.

I continue to shoot Glocks and even drive Toyotas. I guess I'm just a risk-taking, hang-it-out-there, "eat, drink and be merry", "live for today", " you only go around once ", " reach for the gusto ", " just do it ", " ride hard-die fast " wild man.

I am curious though as to where the G22 fear comes from. I carried mine for a long time, put thousands of rounds through it. Not to mention I worked in a department of 100 sworn and all of them carried G22's. Never, I mean never did anyone complain about the functionality, safety, or the reliability of the G22. I have never heard of one KBing other than what I have read on the net. It was very recently that I have even heard of this phenomena. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but it seems to me if you put millions of anything on the market, the statistics of failure or problems increase exponentially.

I did not like the ergos of mine until I got a Hogue Handall last week, now I love the thing...even more than my XD's.

Any reference to Glock safety and 40 S&W ammo that I have seen mentions the unsupported barrel and chambers failure to handle high pressure ammo. I do not own a Glock so I don't really pay a lot of attention to it. It could all be urban legend based on 1 incident involving an abused or mistreated weapon, who knows.

Unless, you have a conversion barrel to make it a 9..

It was actually not all high-pressurea ammo. It was a batch of HydraShoks that Federal used brass that was improperly formed...

Glocks are good pistols. Its all internet BS.

Although, I do love a good 1911.

Aside from this topic being a few days old, Glock has long fixed the problem of barrel support as the Glock i bought a few days ago does have a fully supported barrel chamber. Yes that means at the 6 o clock of the brass has full support.

take the number of Glocks sold over the past years, add in the lack of maintenance/dirty/up-keeping, Loads people fire, then look at the problems, there probably low.

anyone good at numbers or know how many Glocks have been sold since the early 90's

There are a lot of videos out there of people having "issues" with their .40 cal Glocks...most often I think you'll find its an issue with the ammo, (reloads, etc) and not with the gun itself. I own two .40 cal Glocks and love them. I love the .40 cal specifically and so far the Glock 22 and 27 have been reliable and accurate.

hi. im a newbie and im looking to get a handgun. ive shot my friends .45 glock and i love the kick it delivers. im doing my homework on a couple of glock related forums and got a question to this post above. what does he mean by "I shoot weekly with a range of ammo (no reloads) without any issues."

i dont get the no reloads part
