I'm not saying that GLOCKS are almighty, but my EDC is a GLOCK 35 .40 cal. I have dropped my G35 twice with one in the chamber and it did not fire. I trust my GLOCK with my life and haven't had one problem with it. Like someone posted earlier with how many GLOCKS out there they might have some that malfunction. You can probably find any manufacturer with faults in their weapons.

Awww. Thanks for not busting me out. I had it on my lap in the car and stood up and knocked it to the cement. Eek:

Yeah this forum is bad for that. People on here are so excited to get to fight with one another all the time. Rather lame IMO. Glock forum is filled with nothing but nice knowledgeable people that try their best to help each other out.

No not all or I would have left already. But a good couple handfuls at least.

BH...if you're happy reading reports of dangerous malfunctions regarding firearm X...and questioning nothing...so be it.

If a tale of two GLOCK's pulling there own triggers on the same day does not set off your inquisitive nature... so be it.

Members who have been here for awhile would agree that Tack has a pretty good BS detector and I will question a poster whenever it goes off.

Your tale of the issue with your TC did not seem unreasonable, the snarky prelude to the description of your problem did, and it drew some friendly prodding.

Rule 1...relax and be ready to laugh, especially at yourself.

Tack

AS to having triggers pulled accidentally. That is a different story. Gotta keep teh booger hook off the bang switch, and some holsters can cause issues apparently. FLETC, banned Serpa holsters at the training center because of discharges caused when reholstering Glocks.

i am neither a Glock fan nor a detractor, so take my opinions with a grain of salt. anything massed produced by any company can have some that slip through the cracks and have a defect that surfaces later on. Glocks by the most part are a well made and fuctioning pistol.

i would say a ND/AD is the fault of the person handling the pistol. a malfuction due to a parts breakage or defect is the fault of the pistol and not the person operating the pistol. these are two very different situations entirely. one can be controlled with proper instruction and training, and the other with repairs. if it has to be repaired to correct the problem, then it's a malfuction, and not the fault of the person.

I agree, not only that but almost everyone on glockforum owns other types of firearms and don't bash other brands. I'll continue to carry my glock and feel safe, good luck disengaging the safety on your non-glock firearms in a time of need I hope all the best for you...hope you don't end up with 1911 leg!!!
