So I picked up my first Glock yesterday. Having done months of waffling over a Glock or an XD I spent some time at the range with a buddy who has a 17 and I was sold. Having ordered the thing a couple weeks ago I've been reading more about the 19 and checking out videos. I was a little concerned with the recent reports of problems with some of the newer pieces coming out, fails to eject, fails to feed,extractor problems, spring issues etc. Well after a quick cleaning me an my 11yr old son go down to the range to run some rounds thru it and get used to our new weapon. The boy spent some time dry firing while I loaded mags. He's put an empty casing on the slide up near the front sight and squeeze away. 9 out of 10 he had the casing sitting right where it started. So we go to live fire. Second round, boy shooting, failed to feed. WTF I'm thinking I got one of the problematic ones....Not so. After some discussion about not limp wristing the the gun the weapon had no more problems and worked great. The test fire date on our Glock is 12/30/12 BTW. I've read some threads were folks have had problems with the casings coming back at them or not ejecting properly. Here is what we observed. When my son was firing he had most of the shells eject straight up and back towards him, some landed in between his shirt and jacket. When I fired the gun all my casings landed in a nice group off to my right and back a little. So it seems ejection is in the hands of the shooter to some extent. I'm not suggesting there aren't Glocks out there with issues, I'm merely sharing our experience in the hopes it may help others.
