Mountainman: where I do not believe I gave any bad input, I will say I was not trying to muck anything up, and caution with any firearm is very important, yes.

With all due respect, apparently, we come across to each other as pompous know-it-all self appointed gurus, which usually turns into petty arguments. I dont believe it was intended that way, it just happens. Thats something we can work on.

There are no firearm makers who will endorse the use of privately reloaded ammunition, and usually voids your warranty. So by that, a person should not use them. However, in all actuality, there is nothing else wrong with reloaded ammunition, as long as it is safely within specs. The user does however, assume the responsibility of the both the firearm and the ammunition.

IIRC, Glock has stated not to use cast lead bullets in their firearms due to the fact of the polygonal rifling that lead will build up too fast in the rifling and can cause pressure spikes that could damage the firearm.

Actually I thought you were pretty well spoken and knowledgeable. There are just certain things that better left for people to find out as they advance their knowledge.
You're Absolutely correct about the liability issues with reloads and why companies don't endorse them.
I can't endorse them for the same reason, I am connected to glock.
Minor head butting happens, It's not an issue when both sides are reasonable.

Really cant find a better product to be connected with, in my opinion. I do not know anything of their customer service, as Ive never needed it. For years, I found them ugly, and cheap looking. Then I got to shoot 1. Now Ive got a few. Lol.

Years ago, I spent considerable time with a sheriffs dept armorer, learning quite abit about several firearms, whatever he was working on at the time. Sometimes I forget what it was like not to know things, or how to do things, etc. I do not have any papers that say I know anything about firearms innards or workings tho. Maybe someday. (I am amazed tho, to see and hear just how little knowledge is out there in some cases. Its kinda scary.)

Absolutely. Your history shows.
I have all kinds of certs, they're generally just expensive pieces of paper. Experience makes all the difference.
