Unreliable Glock?

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.

But
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?

He has heard untruths sir. It’s because (IMO) it is 6 rounds of .45 cal in a pocket pistol. Hard to tame.

I personally have never owned a 36 but I haven't ever heard of them being unreliable either. I can say that out of the 60+ Glocks that I own/owned, not a single one of them have ever failed me.

As to my suggestion for a EDC gun, that would be a G19 all day every day. The G19 is the gold standard for CCW guns and I carry a Gen4 G19.
If we’re going off subject then I’ll add my view too that every pistol should be a Glock and every Glock should be a 19! -generally-
