    The agency I work for had training today, and when I jumped over a obstacle my glock was not seated all the way in the holster. Causing it to come flying out and sliding across the pavement. Not a good day.

    Pretty sure Glock refinishes their own if you want to keep it original.

    Oh crap. Sorry bro. Is it a personally owned firearm? If so, send it back to Glock with a note explaining what happened. They will likely refinish it for free but even if they don't, you can be sure it will be factory original.

    If it's agency owned, talk to your armorer or, just call it good and use it as it was intended. it is a Glock after all. :) Good luck.

    Its a Glock. I've seen alot worse. If it bothers you send it to Glock. But its a duty gun right? Sharpie marker and some shooter's choice...Its like a Timex takes a licken and keeps on ticken....

    Leave it! It gives that Glock some much needed character!

    For that little bit I agree. Do the sharpie. Or at least that is what I'd do. There are good true black markers that mark a gun finish permanently and then there are lots of other brands of marker that seem to want to wipe back off. Sharpie brand, broad tip permanent markers seem to work best for those occasions when you need to use something that will really last.

    This. I like guns that have stories to tell. All mine have wear marks, nicks and scratches.
