I have never seen a gun store clean a gun. The most I have seen is they wipe the outside down occasionally due to everyone handling them.

rounds and that's it. It's both the platform & non-shooters
that are the problem. The Glock itself is a safe gun.

Again your right that this topic has come up and discussing
it may help to get some people to go take a gun safty course.

Last, you and any other shooter needs to feel comfortable with their carry gun 100% so in a high stress situation you will have the best chance of coming out of it alive
I agree with the entire post, but the bold section is the best piece of advice so far.
You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequence of your choice.
