    Well, problem solved I guess.

    Went to the range I bought it at, shot it, got jamming AGAIN each magazine. Called in the armorer who was there who watched me shoot it, and this time it jammed as he was watching. He couldn't find any reason for it, said I wasn't limp wristing, and to make sure I wasn't, I shot two of the rental Glock 23's they had there, which I was able to fire without any malfunctions.

    They let me return the gun for full value, which I put towards a brand new Glock 23 :D

    Shot about 150 rounds through it, not one single malfunction.

    Such a heavy load off my chest :)

    IMO, I think that most people over lubricate their weapons and too much lube can hurt. I clean all of my guns often but I still have the same bottle of lube that came with my gun cleaning starter kit that I bought in early 2008.

    Yep, that's all it takes...

    Your Glock may have failed you for no other reason than you thinking of the possibility.
    Reflect on that for a moment, and make tomorrow a better day.
