Hey Carolina Glockers!

Just purchased my first Glock. Recently owned Baretta 92, Springfield Armory XDm 9mm Compact, Walther PPQ. Each one had various FTF. Not frequently but enough to shake my trust in a defensive gun. My new Glock 19 Gen 4 has operated flawlessly over 300 rounds of various target and defensive ammo. Also purchased a JR Carbine, 9mm using Glock magazines. Lucky to just find 10 boxes of American Eagle FMJ target ammo. Guess I can start to practice a little.

Welcome from the foothills and as a suggestion, without knowing any more about your failures maybe since you're experiencing them with several different guns you may want to spend some time with an instructor and have them evaluate your shooting to see if maybe you have developed a habit that may be causing the failures. I've seen it happen even with experienced shooters after a long period of shooting.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm sure I could benefit from instruction. It's just that I have been very impressed with my new Glock's performance.

You may have just been a Glock shooter without knowing it. If it's doing what you want it was just meant for you to be a Glock owner and the malfunctions were just hints to you not to quit your search for "the" gun.

Welcome!

What do you think of the JR Carbine? I've read conflicting reviews. Thanks. Ken

Welcome aboard! I lived in Morganton for a couple of years, but I was in Asheville quite a bit. I really miss the mountains.

Welcome to Glock Talk. I'm kind of surprised to hear you say that you have had failures to fire with guns like the Beretta 92 and the Walther PPQ and the XD. Like someone else said, maybe a shooting instructor can help pinpoint what the problem might be. I've been living in Hickory, NC for the past four years and I lived in the metropolis of Troutman, NC for twenty years before that. I hope you enjoy our State. I think it has a whole lot of good things to offer.
