Don't get me wrong, I like Glocks, owned a M17 years ago and I'm planning on buying a M21 and do the combo caliber longslide 10MM thing

But give me your Glock 21 frame for an afternoon anf I'll let my Rottweilers have at it. Nothing survives a Rottweiler! ;g


I'm new and figured my first post should be a doozie ;f

Welcome. Many here used to own Glocks or never have but still stick around because this board is that great. Hope you enjoy your stay here, as I certainly have. You find all sorts of practical information, BullShnikes, trolls, more good information, humor, OAF (Ox and Alex Forum) where all goofiness abounds, politics, religion, and 43,904,523,435,234 opposing views. It's great!!

I can tell you what Rotties do have a tough time surviving......Two 158 grain semi jacketed soft points from a S&W model 19.....I hate foot chases through the ghetto, lots of bad dog owners turning out bad dogs.

On topic my first year G21 is one helluva good gun still going strong.

Yes, and out here in the real America there are lots of well-bred and trained Rotties, family dogs and home guardians. My gal and I have owned Rotties for over 20 years and never had any trouble. We just rescued a nice little affectionate 1 year old purebred Rottie girl from the pound and she's going to make a great family addition after some training

The problem is the ghetto inhabitants, not the ancient Rottweiler breed, THE most intelligent canine on the planet,
which was carefully, scientifically genetically planned and bred by Germans for over 2,000 years from war/guard dogs left in Rottweil, Germany by the retreating Romans

They look like they were designed by machines for machines, a tool, without character. This is why the JM Browning designs will live on forever simply because Glock may function but few pick it up to admire it. I think Glock could easily change this, maybe contour the slide a bit, put some lines in it, add a saftey option for those who want it, etc.
Well My wife is one of those twisted few that thinks her G19 is "cute" She also likes my G21 She thinks it is cute also. Well there is no call for taste She married me after all!!!

Factory loaded ammo is pretty clean. I see nothing impressive about shooting a bunch of rounds through a clean firearm. I would expect any moden production type pistol to be able to do the same.

Can we expect any new "tests" to be conducted on the ol' 21? ;f

I'm basically all out of ideas. I also just added up the cost of the ammo I put through it the last 2 years. Even at dealer cost, looking back, I spent way too much money which I wish, I had spent on other things now. There were several months where I was going through 1K rounds a week just for $hits and giggles, and to see what it looked like after 13K rounds. Figure $150 per thousand rounds of good brass ammo...

bigbore, let's not get into buyer's remorse; you took a journey to prove a point and having proved it, you have graciously given hundreds or more of GLOCK owners the evidence they need to have great confidence in their personal defense selection(s).

Thank you, sir.

How about running it with a few thousand rounds of Wolf for a while? Be nice to see that crap put to a rest.

I sent it back to Symrna where they supposedly "fixed" it. When I got it back I ran another box through it of the same ammo. and had light strikes at 70rds, 106,rds, and 110 rounds.
Before someone critisizes my grip, let me say that I teach CHL plus for almost 3 years I test fired guns for the local police dept crime lab., so I'm not a limp wristed shooter.
Yes, it's going back to Smyrna again!
ok let me get this straight. you bought a gun, fired ONE brand and type of ammo and when it didn't work with the only ammo you tried in it you sent is back?

I'm sorry but that is just plain stupid.

My cz-75 sa eats every brand of 9mm ammo i feed it like its popcorn..

EXCEPT WWB. failure to extract city.

winchester white box ammo is garbage. PERIOD. I know alot of you guys shoot it without a problem But I am seeing thread after thread of gun problems, not just here, where WWB was the ammo used.

and people call wolf junk!

I've used WWB in every pistol I shoot. It shoots fanfriggintastic (for me atleast) with one exception. Out of 10-20,000 shots fired, I had a failure to fire with 3 40S&W shells- all out of the same box. I'm not real crazy about WWB 38sp- it burns a little too dirty for me. Remington on the other hand is my no-no brand. I've had terrible luck with their primers. I'm not a huge user of Wolf b/c of what I heard on here about the laquer (sp) they use on the steel cases jamming some of the glocks up. But I'm thinking of starting and throwing caution to the wind with the way ammo prices are going. Speaking of WWB, I'm off to wally-world now to pick up some for my new varmint rifle. I like going up randomly at night (like 1:30am) to get milk, bread, and shells- just to throw them off a little and make the guy from sporting goods to quit hitting on the girl in electronics, to come and get me shells.
