When I cleaned it you would not believe all the crap in the firing pin channel. Took a half doz q tips with hoppes to get it clean. I know the firing pin was froze in place that caused it. Glock 20. It was 100% my fault.
Sounds reasonable, almost. Something else had to fail. The trigger assy AND cross-pin safety would also have had to "freeze" in the fired position, with no trigger reset (which would/should have occurred before you put the pistol down after last firing). More than only a frozen striker had to have happened.

Good thing I always point in a safe direction.
Of course. Everything else is secondary!
