Don't you have to cock the hammer back first?

Its only the G21 that this consistently happens to. Im a Glock armorist also and have inspected all 3 Glocks. They appear to all be fine with no parts broken or damaged. The next time I have the G21 Im going to test different ammo. Im not saying all G21s have this problem but it does happen with the three G 21 at my range.
Well, well, well. Looky hyar. Glocks with FTEs and FTFs.

Your Glockitis seems to be failing you, sir.

Only, somehow, Glock has a syndrome, i.e. "Glock Leg" and an

annoying way of going off in people's pants. Other models, and

designs, with redundant safety features, simply don't place you

so readily in the hazard of blowing your own balls off.

Oh, forget it, hopefully this won't happen to you, even though

you ignore repeated warnings.

Simple. They're great. I used to bash on them for looks or whatever, but then I started looking at them more and eventually bought one, then two. I love them. They're reliable. I think they're perfectly suited for personal protection. No manual safety's to fumble with when CHTF and you need to quickly draw and fire.

For carry the G30 and the G36. I have the G36 which is slimmer since it is a single stack 6 round mag. It is 27 oz loaded with 7 230 grain rounds. It has been flawless since the correct slide release was installed. The wrong one was installed by the previous owner which may be why he sold it and now believes Glocks are crap.

Lol@ fools still bringing up "glock leg", keep your finger off the trigger and reholster properly you WILL NOT shoot yourself. People who feel they will shoot their leg with a glock shouldn't own any firearms since that means they can't use proper firearm safety. Glocks are some of the most widely used firearms in the planet so their will be idiots who don't use proper techniques and hurt themselves just like theres more accidents in hondas because there's more of them on the road. The OP. Asked how reliable are glocks, not who thinks glocks will shoot my leg off.

He always brings up that stupid "glock leg". Lets blame it on the gun, but never blame the idiot putting his finger on the trigger. I carry a G35 and have no problem with my gun. Properly trained people know when to put their finger on the trigger.

My agency switched to Glocks ages ago and I liked the feel and the accuracy. I did not particularly care for the little plastic trigger safety thingy but whatever. I had a reload-cock-the-hammer malfunction at the range(fortunately at the range) and turned the weapon in to the armorer. He couldn't figure it out and contacted Glock people who insisted *it could not happen*. Again, whatever but I was there. We also had TWO discharges when the trigger fingers of the officers were nowhere close to the firearms. If you like Glocks, it's fine with me.
