Well, I learn't something new today and will keep this advice in mind from now on.
Also, I manage a facility where I have at least 700 persons who are unarmed, as far as I know. As a result, I am using a quote seen on this site very seriously...... I believe in gun control, If there is a gun I wanna be in control of it......and I am adding that it must be on me, loaded and ready to be deployed if necessary.

As far as "solvents/oil that gets stuck in the firing pin channel can drip down on to the chambered round and penetrate the primer..." :

A Glock like that is over lubed, there should be NO lube in the firing pin channel. Otherwise it is good advice to stay on top of your ammo, anything could go wrong with that first round, anything can go stale sitting around too long so get out there and shoot!
