Thanks for the test, I couldn't afford to do it with mine, but it is great you have so much trust in your weapon!

Poodle,how's your g21 going? I suppose i've seen you using your g21 during the Sept. 3 IDPA meet at armscor range. I just got mine, g19 for Prod in IPSC and for SSP for IDPA replacing my old PT92 (inaccurate, reliable though, sorry Taurus). Got interested in glocks these days after suffering from a never-ending trouble with my 1911s..plan to acquire g21/g30 for Ipsc std division and IDPA cdp.

Great test.

Thanks for the time, effort, and of course money that went into that test.

Though this is a little off topic, I wonder how certain long guns would handle tests like these. I'd be interested in seeing the HK 416 or the FN SCAR put through something like this. The 416 has a firing pin block so I'd really like to see if that could survive being dropped with a primed case off a roof or even 500 feet out of an airplane. Sweet thread and awesome videos!

I humped a 16 for 91/2 months in the bush @ the Battle of Vietnam. My ass depended on this weapon working %100 of the time, it was kept clean and well maintained. So the point of abuseing this Glock is WAHT?

dude, lighten up... it proves that someone with a good heart had fun proving the limits of a seemingly infalible weapon. He dern near proved it. I shoot the 1911 and it's a wonderul weapon but it surely won't handle what BigBore put the Glock through. He was having fun and testing some theories out. He proved things to himself as well as others. That's all.

Easy on the caffine.....

by the way, bigbore, you're a genius.... incredible stuff man, simply incredible. I have never owned a Glock until now. I picked up a 19 because it is such a popular choice in 9mil and I am about to run some backflips over the purchase. Excellent stuff man, I'm glad I picked 'er up!!

This thread was linked to an AR15 forum. Yet again this thread continues to influence people to purchase Glocks.

Just a thought, but personally I would prefer to be training, recreating, or getting some sleep than cleaning a weapon. And, as some friends of mine who went driving around with PFC Lynch will tell you, sometimes you don't have time to field strip and clean a weapon. Sometimes you just need it to work.
Knowing whether or not it will is pretty nice.

Test???

Being a long time shooter, I find your test to be very interesting. After reading about your test, burying the Glock 21 in various media sand, potting soil, powder, etc. etc. You simply just pulled the gun out, loaded a round, and then fired it. And you state that the only cleaning done was a simple dunk in water.

I am now a retired LEO, who was on a tactical team for 15 years, and am a person who would have some experience with firearms being dragged through mud and other like conditions you tried to simulate in your testing.
I find the results of your testing to be flawed if not exagerated. If you did what you say you did, I am surprised that the pistol did not blow up in your hand. Dropping it in the mud, burying it in everything you said, especially the paste from powder and water, and you are telling me that the barrel never was clogged and posed any kind of a threat to fire???? I highly doubt it.

With videos to accompany the text and pictures, I find your accusations unfounded and uncalled for.
