    What's the WILDEST thing u've heard bashing Glocks at your Local Gunstore? Mine:
    "Did you know Glock invented the .45GAP guns for Heavy Duty Police Work Only? That's why we don't hardly get them in. GAP stands for Government And Police!"

    To this I just shook my head and walked away amazed... He also went on to say how regular .45's lacked the "super penetrating power" of the GAP round?? *blank stare*
    *__*

    Don't you just love a know-it-all?:supergrin:
    I was buying my G36 and a guy tells me that I shouldn't shoot anything over 185gr. in it. I asked him why and he says it will damage the gun because it wasn't made for 230 gr.! I looked at him and said OH!:dunno:

    just heard one the other day at the range. i was talking g19's with another g19 owner and he busted in on my praise of the glock brand as the best combat pistol on the market with the 40's will blow up in your hand. I went heh? he said just check out utube, its all over there. I walked away in aww as my dept has had our g22/g23's since 2005 with NO issues! god love know it alls!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A guy who worked at a gun shop asked me which Glocks I already owned. I responded, "All of them in 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45ACP." He said, "but Glock isn't made by Smith and Wesson." I just stated that was a good observation and went about my way...

    Just curious 'cause I've never owned or shot a Glock 45GAP. What does GAP stand for? If anything…

    Lets see, over the years i have heard they are invisible to metal detectors, will melt, break,explode.


    For the record I have seen one explode while I was watching the shooter. I found an AMERC casing in the 40 pocket gun.


    The best is Glocks are not safe because no safety on the gun.

    Not at a LGS, but at the State Police Academy. The instructor was ranting on Glocks as 90% of the class had baby glocks for off duty qual's, me included. "These guns are worthless....it costs less than 100 bucks to make these things!!".

    So....sounds like good business to me.:whistling:

    Waiting on a Gen4 G26 to be my off duty weapon.:cool:

    I did recently hear from a retired LEO at a local gun range about all of the SWAT and entry guys shot in the back by friendly fire when the Glocks first came out, due to the trigger and lack of safety...

    i've heard this one so many times.

    had one lady go on about, "how is a safety on the trigger suppose prevent someone from accidently shooting someone else or themselves?" i just walked away shaking my head.

    I have found gun shopping is like car shopping. The person your talking to is often full of hot air concerning anything other then their pockets or maybe the one or two items they really care about.

    Two days ago I was told Glock doesn't make a FDE pistol.

    Over the years.

    A 10mm Glock won't last because it's plastic.
    They don't make a flush mag for the glock 30, (didn't purchase because of this miss info)
    Baby Glock will jump out your hands of you shoot one handed because the recoil is so bad.

    With time I could think of other miss informed information.


    Sent an iPhone 4s sitting next to a Glock 17 loaded with 19 round of +P+ ammo.
