Glock has added a new course to their training schedule earlier this year: the Glock Operator Course. My wife and I took this 2 day course through our membership in the GSSF at the Glock headquarters in Smyrna, GA on November 1st and 2nd, 2017.

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.
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?
I've seen more and more pics of carry guns fitted with a red dot sight. Since more and more of these carry sized pistols are being made with the ability to mount a red dot sight, I have wondered how many actually had a red dot on their carry gun.
Does your carry gun have a red dot? What about a red or green laser like a Crimson Trace, do you think a red dot is more beneficial than a laser sight?
