    :mad: There is one problem I have with my glock. If I shoot it resting one handed, or just shoot it weak handed with a unconventional grip and arm position, it will mis-feed. Now I know this is something in which all auto's suffer from...but it seems like you need to shoot the Glock with a firm double handed grasp every time. I like to tactically shoot from unconventional positions, such as lifes situations.


    Has anyone else had this problem? It happens to my 19C with my 115 gr practice ammo and my 147 gr duty ammo. Are there corrections?

    Under no condition should you buy a Ruger they Su*k. IMO :D

    Actually, I carried a Glock 17 for about 12 years and never had a problem shooting support hand only or strong hand only or from unconventional positions. Make sure you put the tang of the weapon as deep in the web of your hand as you can and keep a firm (not death) grip and you shold not have a problem. Linda (my wife) carries a Glock 19 and she hasen't had a problem with hers.

    Just don't get a Ruger P90 DC

    My local dealer told me a horror story he had with the P90 DC and limp wristing. He had to go through three different Rugers P90's, all three were mis-feeding, at first he thought it was limp wristing, but it turned out to just be the model itself.

    I'm not saying Rugers are bad, just watch out for the p90 dc, luckily my dealer was kind enough to tell me about that when I was looking at the Ruger P90 DC at his shop. I went with the M92FS instead.

    Glockshooter :
    If in doubt, replace your recoil spring with a brand new genuine Glock spring. The spring could be overly strong or weak and they weaken with age.

    Throw away!

    I'll never get rid of my glock or get a ruger.


    I found out that a friend put in an aftermarket recoil spring. From SpringCo. It's meant for +P+ ammo. Not regular pressure. He decided to test it in my gun w/o telling me. Took two secs and changed to original 19 spring.

    My baby's shooting my 147 gr. fmj's and 147 gr. hp's like a champ now. Though I did get it to fail with a two finger hold, but seriously, just a test. Besides for safety no gun should be shot with a loose (I don't mean buisiness grip.)

    Shooting methods

    It wasn't my grip...it was the Glock. Even with the standard recoil spring a loose grip will sink the ship.

    I am new to glocks. I do have 15 years of tactical shooting on my side, trained by the best. The Glock will not do the things that my USP 9 Compact can. This doesn't really apply to everyday situations. I shoot both eyes open, with handguns, and rifles, in CQB situations. Everyone should learn this tactic. Especially in dangerous situations, when it's the bodies natural instinct to get tunnel vision.
    Point to this is that all guns have their Achilles heal. A Glocks is unconventional shooting angles and loose grip shooting. Practice nonwithstanding my 19C is as trustworthy as any CQB pistol I have ever owned. I like it's seemlessness more than my USP, which is why I'm trading it in for a P2000 next month. The Glock 19 and P2000 in 9mm are the best plastic pistols for 9mm in the world. After a 3 million round test with +P ammo they beat out ten other companies.

    I trust my Glock 19C with my life. When shot properly it will function so. As will most guns on the market.

    The P2000 is a good gun but has its detrements also, I prefer the Glock to the P2000. I've carried the Glock for approximately 12 years and the P2000 for 5 years.. I still would take the Glock over the P2000 IMO.

    Glock says to replace the recoil spring assembly every 3000 to 5000 rounds or when you begin to get peening on the slide.

    Glock 19 and P2000

    I love both guns. I need another 9mm incase my Glock breaks or is sent away for repairs, etc.
    I like the features of the P2000. I like the accuracy. It actually beat out Glock for USA DHS duty gun. One advantage is that I prefer the DA/SA version. I like the hammer and manual decocker. I never keep my 19C with one in the chamber. I feel much safer with the HK in my IWB holster pointed at my balls than the Glock. I'm not saying the HK is better. I like them both equally. And I know the HK can be trusted more than 90% of the 9mm's on the market. I also like selection. I like a choice in my CQB pistols. I admire the beauty and functionality of different firearms. Both guns will serve me and my shooting/duty needs. I shoot my guns too. I average around 300 rounds a week.

    The P2000 that DHS uses does not have the de-cocking lever; it is a DAO only weapon. The P2000 with the de-cocking lever is the civilian model. The P2000 is an “ok” weapon but I think the Glock is a superior handgun. As for the “test” and H&K and Sig Sauer beating Glock out, to me, is highly suspect as they will not release the evaluations and no one will talk about them.

    G19 vs P2000

    I know that the agencies use the LEM system. I have tried it and do not like it at all. Concerning the tests. I to have only been able to scrape up a little intel.


    This I do know. Sigs will not shoot through cases of +P like a Glock or HK. I have seen many cracked Sig lower recievers.

    Many government contracts were taken from Glock for economic/political reasons. A bad idea to let the government dictate what you should use because of politics. The secret service for one got short stopped. They would be far better off with Glocks or Hk's. Though even these companies make better guns for certain calibers. For ex. It is known that 40 caliber Glocks are problem prone. While they shine in 9mm.

    The glock also was put down due to the safety issuesLike no external safety or hammer. The agencys were not sure about striker fired guns and went with bobbed hammered guns, like sigs, and the aformentioned model HK's.

    I do know that the 19 is one of the better 9mm Glock versions. I think it's perfect. When the RTF grip comes out I will absolutely get one. In the mean time I will reasearch further.

    I don't see how you can say the P2000 DA/SA is an ok weapon after you owned it. It's well balanced, combat accurate, will eat up any ammo, and will fire over 30 thousand rounds of +P+ without a cleaning or malfunction. I work with the guns at my job and have seen and used guns like the XM8 and 416 that we make optics for. HK's are innovative and well made. And you are not changing my mind buddy.:)

    I am getting the P2000 9x19 DA/SA with the hammer and rear de-cocker. I love the gun.


    Yes, my Glock 19 and 19C are shooting machines. And I would hit the field with the gun any day of the week. ( my first 19 I traded for my 19C) I shot it out in two years, and it was cheaper and easier to get a new gun than get it totally refurbished.

    As to a battle between them. That's for someone else. I know what they both can and can't do. They both can't let you down. They both can save your life. You can't disagree with me there.


    Shoot safe...
