As a core part of my self-directed training, I spend a decent amount of time in the range (carefully) slinging bullets downrange; as a result, I work through a lot of ammo, especially 9mm. This comes from a few factors:
1) I strongly believe in the need for regular training (both supervised...

I went to my LGS for the first time in quite a while. I was surprised by 2 things.
1. I looked at a Beretta APX and when I picked it up I was blown away by how comfortable it felt in the hand. I actually said "wow!" Out loud. I think my next gun is decided.
2. Out of dozens and dozens of handguns for sale, they had just one .40 left. Everything else was 9s and a few .45s scattered around (not counting the 1911 case.). I asked them about it and they said they stock what sells. That demand for .40s has really plummeted and that it's more of a competition caliber now. I'm starting to wonder if I'm the only fan of .40 left.
My new G34 have included:
* Continued weak, erratic ejection, mostly brass to face, chest and head.
* Slide lockup on three separate occasions.
* Slide/barrel wear starting to show indicating misalignment or canting.
* Bullet stuck in chamber (see pic below). Almost double tapped, would have
likely blown the barrel. Took awhile to get that bullet out. To give Glock benefit of doubt probably was a squib round so I'll lay it on the ammo.
* Shot 200-250 rounds of Winny white box 115g FMJ and Remington 115g UMC mostly,
along with some 124g factory ammo.
Obviously, I did not want to sell the gun as-is with these problems even with full disclosure. Naturally, I'm disappointed but nobody's perfect, even GLOCK though they boast they are.
Fortunately, seller got it from Davidson's Gallery of Guns, which...
Can the Gen5 use the minus connector?
i don't know if the new barrel is done the way it is for accuracy or cost... I don't like that it can't be swapped with other glocks. I think police departments will find that it's going to be far easier to match bullet and gun for evidence after a shooting... so your gen 5 will be far more easy to trace projectiles... back to your gun.
I don't know if most people care... I guess I will care if it's harder to clean well.. I always thought the glock barrel was pretty easy to clean well. I never felt glocks were very accurate guns.. maybe that image will change ??
Took my gen 5 to the range today, shoots awesome! Performed very well. I brought my gen 4 as well, shot them side by side to see id I could notice any differences......well, some differences were noticed when I took the Gen 5 down for cleaning. I am not so sure about this new Ion bonded finish vs the tinnifer that the Gen 4 has. My Gen 4 has about 450 rounds theough it. The Gen 5 now has about 125......the Gen 5 has a lot of wear for that little amount of rounds, IMO of course. The Gen 5 looks like its had more rounds than my Gen 4. Look at the pics below. You will notice the tooth picks. The slide on the left is the Gen 5. Its already removing material. I can catch it with my fingernail. The Gen 4 doesnt look that bad. The barrel also has a notch in it, not sure whats up......? What do you fellas think?
