Just a little poll to raise awareness.

I practice every time my Glock malfunctions. I'm thinking of getting a S&W to get more practice.

My brother came up with a good trick. He'd load 2 or 3 mags for me and I'd do the same for him. In each one, we'd randomly slip in a snap-cap. And we'd treat that as a malfunction. But only, ONLY, do this with a very trustworth shooting partner. I tend not to like anyone else touching something I'm going to shoot, my brother is the only exception.

I never thought I would say this with any sincerity.

You should consider getting a Kimber. You will get more practice for your money.

It wasn't until I started reading these online gun forums that I even knew a FTE or FTF existed. I had to buy snap caps just to practice. I don't think my XD knows how to malfunction.

It seems that you can make the glock malfunction... the magazine is the week link.

Guess I need to start using mine as a hammer, shooting it with a .22, burying it in rock salt, and letting it full up with pebbles in the trigger to get some training. :smilelol5: "rlol" :fire :fire :fire :fire
