Unreliable Glock?

11309 92
So, I’m a Glock guy. I really like the two I have, but I have a question. Actually, it’s been asked before but lots of models have been introduced.

In choosing an every day carry, my first criterion is that it will shoot and cycle every. Time. I. Pull. The. Trigger. No jams. No misfeeds. No stovepipes. No light primer hits. Just bang and cycle another live round into battery. After that, I have to be able to shoot it- it has to be accurate enough and I have to be able to be accurate enough with it. For me the G43 (for sub compact) and G30s (for compact) do just that.

1) my son doesn’t like my G43,
2) wants a .45,
3) I don’t want him to get an XDs,
4) wants sub compact or as close as he can get,
5) and he doesn’t like the S&W.

But he’s heard that the G36 is the least ‘reliable’ of the Glocks. Any truth to this? Suggestions?

When the 36 came out there were some issues but now it's fine.

If this gun is for you why do you care what your son thinks?

The G43 is a fantastic ccw, so is the S&W Shield. Don't forget about the Walther PPS.

Perhaps I should clarify. I carry Hornady Critical Defense in .45 and I do most practice with Winchester white box ball ammo, in the 9mm I carry Winchester D and practice with Winchester T or white box. Never a single problem with either.

Also, the gun is for him. I’ll help him buy it and make suggestions, but ultimately he will have to choose what’s best for him.

Walther PPS or Sig 365

Do not get an XD. It’s Croat garbage.
