    Has anyone attended the Glock Armorer Course? I read the course descriptions, it's all about field stripping, reassembly, understanding Glock's functions and safeties and etc. Then at the end of the course we will be given a test which requires 80% score to complete. Passing it will get us a Glock Armorer certificate. There's one 1day course coming up at my local area next month and it costs $195.
    My questions are:
    I know how to clean, field strip and reassembly. So what will i be gaining beside what i already knew?
    Are there any perks or goodies at the end of the course?
    And the last, the certificate is a lifetime or there's an expiration date on it?
    I'm aware learning is a priceless thing as sky is the limit. But if i'm going to attend one, i have to not working that day.
    So anyone opinions whom already attended the course? Thank you

    I haven't attended but from my understanding it's a three year cert and the perk is ordering parts directly from Glock and you get a couple pistols at below distributor prices.

    To my understanding i can order all the necessary parts and almost any parts of my Glock from online retailers like glockstore.com, rockyourglock.com and glockmeister.com. And majority of the parts are not that expensive.
    U meant by purchasing the Glocks at LE prices using the GSSF coupons?

    I'm a GSSF member and i do have the coupon on hand. In that case, the discount thingy is not a perk at all to the Armorer Course.

    3 year cert and all I got was a takedown tool, some stickers, a new york trigger spring and a orange test backplate and manuals.
