    And i feel completely disgusted about it. ive had it for a year now and this is the first time i dropped it. it feel about 3 1/2 feet. think its probably ok? are the internals pretty shock resistant. and please dont reference the glock that was dropped out of a plane. that one was dropped in mud right...


    damn.. i effed up the title..

    yea they're built Glock tuff! Ive heard of people dropping them and cracking tiles and the glock wont even have a scratch on them. They only thing that may damage are the stupid plastic stock sights.

    True. I am going for the night sights soon as I can afford them.

    I've dropped my G30 and my Kahr MK9. The G30 landed in the dirt, new gun and bad holster makes clumsy actions! But last year I dropped my MK9 on the concrete, it landed in between my legs, barrel up. It was loaded 6+1 and no bang.... but I was sweating it was a second. (I was retrieving the gun from my center console, after going into a no-gun government building.)

    Small scratch, no damage but to my pride.

    (Yes, I've changed to way I secure and retrieve my weapon when I have to leave it in the truck. And I got a real holster for my G30. I used the crappy FOBUS for target practice...)

    When we go through our tac course, we do MUCH worse to our 21's. We do drills where we drop our pistols to the deck and transition to M4's and shotguns. MULTIPLE times. It truly is a combat pistol. They are built to survive and continue on. Don't worry. 1400 police officers in our Deptartment and NOBODY has had an issue yet. We used to CRUSH our H+K's. So glad we made the move to Glock. It's just a better firearm for LE needs. in my opinion

    I've had a Crossbreed SuperTuck for awhile now and love it. Easy on and easy off.

    Can't beat it for all day comfort either.

    (Yes, it works for the SF too)

    A 3' drop on carpet and you are worried :rofl:

    Glocks have been dropped out of airplanes and survived.

    IMO, the Glock is a tool. I've got guns i'd be upset if they hit the ground, but my Glocks are definitely NOT in that group.

    nothing mechanical is going to be damaged by a 3' drop onto carpet.

    Ive dropped mine a few times while in the holster... always makes me cringe.

    But I trust glock and the safe action system knowing that she wont go bang unless the trigger is pulled :supergrin:.

    I've never dropped one of my Glocks, but did drop my Colt series 80 Combat Commander down a flight of 18 stairs. No damage at all, not even to the adjustable sights. Modern firearms are actually quite durable.

    I dropped my 642 onto my cement sidewalk during the summer. Very frustrating experience. The gun has a few small nicks to show for it, but was otherwise okay.

    I had a G17 jump out of my concealment holster while I was getting out of my truck.

    Scratches add character.

    I am so confident in my G23 that I would spike it on concrete, loaded. :supergrin:
