I own a Glock 27 and have installed the Pearce grip extenders. It's my daily carry piece and honestly, my only gun. It's run perfectly since day one and I've never had any issues with it at all. Until last night.
As I was gathering everything up and preparing to go upstairs to hit the sack, I managed to drop the gun (in it's holster, a Blackhawk CQC) onto my desk. I didn't think anything of it as I only dropped it about 12-18 inches, and my desk is one of those cheap particle board ones. I picked up the gun, turned out the lights, and started climbing the stairs.
When I'd made it about 3/4's of the way up, the Pearce grip extender flew off the handle of my gun, followed of course by the spring, and all 10 rounds rolled out onto the stairs. I have to admit I stood there staring at my now (mostly, I keep it +1) unloaded gun trying to figure out what had happened for a good 5-10 seconds before it clicked.
Has anyone run into this issue before? I've never had a second thought about the reliability of my Glock until now. What if that were a SHTF situation and in the heat of the moment, I dropped the gun or bumped it against a wall or car while struggling with a bad guy? I'm sorry to say I'm a bit spooked. I would never have expected such a short fall to cause that problem.
