    A friend of mine was telling me that I needed to lube the gun so it would operate more smoothly and be less prone to failure/jamming etc. He was recommending something called Metrotex or something close to that, I'm not sure what.

    My father taught me to clean the my guns meticulously with good cleaner, but we never lubricated anything...of course this was always hunting rifles, and it may be different for semi-auto pistols. If someone could enlighten me on whether Glocks need this, and if so, what's a good product to look for, I'd appreciate it.

    Also, what are the benefits/drawbacks/considerations to using lube?

    Yes, it needs lube. Read the manual.

    A major cause of problems with Glocks is improper lubrication, primarily over-lubrication. Glocks need very little lube in order to function properly.

    A good guide to lubing the Glock can be found at http://glockmeister.com/glubric.shtml.

    One point that I want to emphasize is the statement that reads:
    If you never lube any other location on the Glock, be sure to periodially put one drop - and no more than one - at this location.

    All guns need lubrication. Lubrication should be "felt but not seen". The same holds true for Glock pistols. Wipe off any excess and a single drop on the "cross" where the trigger bar and connector meet.
