Do you keep spare parts for your Glock?

I hate waiting for parts if I must order them. I had this experience with a 1911 45 I had years ago. So I ordered a few spare just in case. Just some common parts that wear out or have a rep of just breaking.

Do you keep any spare parts for your Glock and if so which parts? (i.e. RSA, Pin set, spring set, etc...)

yes, sprins and pins mostly. a spare slide lock, the little stuff.
Its reasonable to do them all, cost is very low for factory parts even thru third party.

Probably overkill but, let's see: complete striker assembly, all pins, locking block, slide lock, slide lock spring, slide stop lever, striker channel liner, extractor and tensioning assembly, trigger mechanism housing with ejector, connector, a couple of sets of magazine internals, trigger and trigger bar, recoil spring assembly, trigger spring, sights, - guess that's all.

Same as above, only worse! I've got two or three sets of everything (including barrels) for both of my G-21's, and a G-19.

For my single Gen 3 EXO G27 I have;
6 barrels in three calibers, finishes and lengths.
20+ mags in three calibers and four lengths.
4 X-Grip adapters (2 of each size)
2 trigger/bars
4 connectors (2 OEM, 2 Ghost)
2 trigger springs (OEM standard and NY1)
2 sets of night sights (Ameriglo I-Dot Pro, XS Big Dot)
? Various RSAs (OEM, Tungsten and Stainless)

I'm sure I've got more stuff I'm not thinking of...

My Glock spares are the other guns, but it is worth having spare parts around. I keep parts for some of my rifles and other handguns.

I think most people here keep extra Glocks for spare parts.

I plan on doing that as well. I'd rather not have to scavenge parts from one of my other firearms when spare parts are cheap.

Spare Parts

I have a tackle box full of most of the smaller parts...springs, etc. Haven't had to replace much yet, though.

So far I have not had anything break.

I have a spare G21 for my G21.
I would like to get a spare G19 for my G19.
I should probably get a spring kit. One of my G21s spent some time in and underwater.
I would like to get some spare barrels threaded so I could use them with a suppressor.

But so far nothing has broke.

Same. If I didn't though I might have a few springs, striker cups, etc.

Oh, wait, I do have a Heckler and Koch HK45C if my Glock takes a dump.

I bought the 3.5lb disconnect, extended slide lock and LCI for my gun, I still kept the old ones just in case because I'm indecisive. No, I don't have any spare springs or the stuff that I SHOULD have on hand for a 15-year-old gun but I live 4 miles from Glockmeister's store so it's not hard for me to get replacements.

I've also purchased the Glockmeister extended takedown lever and trigger spring but don't use either. The takedown lever was scraping up my holster and the spring didn't change my pull weight at all. Now even the stock flat slide lock lever is on there because I had a bad habit of putting my thumb on it! gee why won't my slide hold open? gun must be broken -.-

Let me refocus the question.

If you could only get three spare parts what would they be?

The first one on my list would be the slide lock spring followed by trigger spring and firing pin/striker spring and I have to add a fourth because with out it the FP/striker spring may do you no good,spring cups.
