No problems here.....:cool:

I notice that most of the people that have problems have done some sort of modification.

The venerable "17" is one of the finest combat pistols made, reliable and tough....be happy, don't worry, and go out and shoot that bad boy....

You bought a wonderfully simple and time-tested firearm.

The only one better is the G-19....

I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo out :cool:

I don't post about problems with my Glocks because *ahem* I don't have any. Even my pawn-shop G36 is running like a top after fixing one thing that the previous owner had done (slide release inserted backwards.) Oh, and a piece of plastic on a magazine that was peeling off is in Smyrna waiting to be repaired or replaced.

ok I figured it must be from some kind of mod to the firearm.My old boos was a leo and I asked him last week before he quit what did he think I should do.He said get a g17 or g19 so I did.I can't wait til tomorrow so I can go get it and post some pics for you guys.

Now here is my problem,my local shop has a horrible selection of jhp's but I need to get something in case I need it plus I want to go to the range next week if money allows.Out of the following what would you get.
Speer gold dots
winchester silver tips
federal hydrashocks
Please tell me why you would get them.I want some of those federal hst since the reviews I have seen have been very positive but I donot have a CC or checking account so I can't order any,.

What kind of problems have all these people started having?

Don't see what your problem is.

Gold Dots, Golden Sabers and Federal Hydrashocks are pretty much the holy trinity when it comes to proven SD rounds. They're also easily obtainable at any gun shop. I have/had tried all without issue.

I'm not even sure what Winchester silver tips are. Are they akin to Win Ranger Ts?

Mine have ALWAYS ran fine in 9mm, 40S&W, and even my 357 Sig G-35. It is very possible that many complaints are shooter errors (certainly not all of course) and lack of humility (the desire to be teachable....some seem to know it all already). The best thing any shooter can do for reliability is to pay for and get some training. If not, as in can't afford it, etc, study it from a good source at least. The basics are a good start and a good place to revisit often.

The number one PROBLEM is the new owners of Glocks. Not the weapon. It's a new toy that requires an entirly differnet understanding of what a real combat pistol is.

From...

My mags are not feeding the round right! Never understanding that they need to take them apart and clean off the factory film in the tube. Never brushing the tube, follower, and spring down with CLP (using a tooth brush and wipe out with a rag).

Mags not snapping in mag well right! No kidding...The top round pushes against the slide and requires the mag to get a good slap to seat..

My Glock jams every 1000th round! Only a baseball bat is more reliable.

My slide release sticks, my slide sticks back, my trigger has too much this or that, when do I clean it, can I use lead bullets, will Wolf hurt it...

And on it gos....
