It is okay to leave the copper grease in there, although many do remove it. There are only two places on a Glock that requires oil, and it's only 1 drop per place. Like many have said, take it out of the box, shoot it, take it home, clean it, DON'T get crazy with the oil, unlike 1911's which like to run very wet, Glocks don't.
    A nice thin film of Mobil 1 on the frame tabs is simply amazing. Liquid ball bearings. I keep it in an old Visine bottle. One quart is seven lifetimes worth.

    I didn't when I got mine, I just went straight to the range, but the manual does say you should lubricate first.

    MAN Skin the smoke wagon and start shootin. Its a glock you can't hurt the thing. Now seriously, after making sure it will dry-fire then check and clear the barrel then load it up and let it rip. Clean it 2 drops of oil on each side of the slide and your back in business.

    I clean and lube them first be they Glock or otherwise. In the case of the Glocks I scrubbed out the beads of grease that came from the factory and used my own oil.
