    I'm not a big fan of the full sized Glocks, but I love the 9mm mini Glocks (Model 26). I forget the model number, but I shot a mini Glock chambered in .45ACP and WOW!! That thing almost popped out of my hand when I shot it. :P

    Glocks are great, every one ought to own at least one. I have a 26. I carry it when I can't carry anything else. It fits almost anywhere... I had to put adjustable sights on it so my rear sight was not off center, but that is my ONLY complaint. I was going for the full or compact version when I was introduced to the Walther P99. That put a stop to my Glock acquisitions in 9mm... Glocks are great though, I'm not selling my 26!

    Well, I have a Glock 34 that I like - it is my nightstand gun w/ a Glock light.

    Now, I had a Glock 26 for 8 years, but I never really shot it too well. I ended up selling it last falla nd got the compact Walther P99 - which I love.

    But, I like the Glock 34 - it has a stock lighter trigger, and it also has an extended mag release and slide release

    They are great guns for the money - and they are simple to use. In a pinch, under stress - all you have to do is pull the trigger. No safeties

    Not many of those floating around. Avg person has no shot at one. And, if I did want a machine gun, I think there are others I would rather have - like a P90.

    Holy moly! I had a Glock 10mm blow up in my hand that did not look near that bad!

    Why do we see so many Glocks that are blown up. I don't think Glocks just Kaboom easier than other brands of pistols. What is it then?
    Man, the first thought that comes to mind is that Glock owners are just more careless than other gun owners... That CAN'T be right, I'm a Glock owner!
    Got any other (better) ideas?

    Well, I see a lot of different brands having Kabooms - but the majority of them seem to be with .40 cal ammo. That is a high pressure round.

    As far as autos I carry and use my glocks most. No problems to report, no bluing wear to be concerned about and have yet to see them rust. I like them because I enjoy shooting them and have enought safe queens.
    My glock buddies include a G36,30,21,35 and 17. I would like to get a 10 as that is my favorite caliber.

    I think the reason you see so many Glock KB's (kabooms) is due to their popularity. THough they are a great gun, they are also a popular and fad gun. I don't mean this in a derogatory fashion, only that they get a lot of name drops and people ask for them despite having shot nothing else.

    With this higher proprtion of people running out to get them, some of which having never shot a gun in their life, you would expect to hear about more mishaps.

    I think it also has to do with an unsupportted chamber and firing out of battery issues, but more to do with ignorace and mass numbers.

    I have a Glock 36 and love it. I have had it for a few years now and never had a problem with it. I picked up an XD .45 Service and I know carry the Glock when I am wearing a T-shirt or shorter polo, but I carry the XD when I'm wearing a larger shirt. But I always go back to the Glock and know it will work.

    And reloads in that high pressure round! I don't think I've heard of a kaboom with factory ammo in a loooooong time.

    Part of the reason the 40 caliber Glock kaboom stories are so prevalent is the Federal .40 load in the early-mid 90's, brass was very weak and kabooms were fairly common at the "path of least resistance". In the case of every single modified Browning linkless locking system that will be at the 6 o'clock position.

    Glocks were pretty much THE .40 cal to get at the time, and so they got stuck with the bad rap. Glocks blowing up is just as common as any other gun, and in the vast majority of cases the ammo is to blame.

    Unsupported chambers are not an issue...

    Firing out of battery can be though. If your recoil spring is very weak, but your striker spring is fairly strong, the slide can not close all the way. Glocks have a little bit of play that they can fire in while being out of battery. This could be catastrophic in the higher pressure guns such as the .40. Easily avoided though with making sure to replace the recoil spring once and a while(Glock armorer I know says once a year if you shoot a lot).

    Nice thing is Glock will send you a spring any time you need it!

    My glock 17 has a serial number 280. I have put more than 15k rounds through it and just replaced the barrel and extractor pin. I also have the G30 and I carry the G26 with a spare 33rd glock magazine. Just ordered the G21C. I guess that makes me a fan. My next purchase will be a Walther p99 as compact in 9mm.
