    So, I come home last night and I'm going to feed the cats. I take my G19 off my belt and go to place it on the kitchen bar. I'm not sure exactly what went wrong at this point, but next thing I know my gun is neither on the bar or in my hand. You guessed it...it's in the air, freefalling directly in line with the cats' water bowl. As time slowed to a trickle, there was nothing I could do but start the process of laughing my arse off before it even landed. Like the title says, nothing but net.

    I dug it out, made the cats some fresh water, unloaded it, field stripped it, dried it, cleaned it, and relubed it. I was pleasantly surprised to see how effective the years of CLP treatment were at repelling the water. It all beaded up and came right off like on a freshly waxed car. So I guess a big +1 to CLP.

    Anyways, figured you guys would enjoy a nice laugh. I did. And now I've got 16 extra rounds to fire off at the range next time; I put my carry rounds in my range bag and replaced them with 16 fresh ones. I'm sure they're fine but I didn't want to take any chances. Also, though it was only a momentary exposure and I made sure I dried everything out, if anyone thinks of anything I should look out for in terms of possible water damage, let me know please. Thanks!

    Do more than field strip it. A detail strip of a Glock is pretty simple. It sure wouldn't hurt to remove the striker, striker safety and extractor plunger and swab everything with Q-tips.

    This sounds like a good excuse to get some mariner sping cups.

    OK, I'll admit it...I laughed. Though this was not their fault, FTR.

    Got spooked. Too many small parts for me to be comfortable with. Took it to the certified armorer at my range. They're gonna detail strip and clean it for me. I'll have it back on Monday.

    You can PM me if you ever feel like you're in over your head.

    If you've the time, ask your armorer if you can be there and observe when he cleans your gun.

    Oh, any time. This is what I do. I provide comedic relief.
