    Good target, Raymn_V
    I've had a Glock 36 for over a year, and It's a fine carry gun. Shoot the heck out of it and you'll get used to the recoil. It is an accurate gun. Remember, if you carry with one in the chamber, don't pull it out of the holster with your finger in the trigger guard. The Glock is a striker fired gun that is 90% cocked all the time. You pull that trigger and it's going off. My friend saw some of the groups I shot at 25yrds and he went out and bought a Glock 36. I'm happy with the gun. Thats a fine holster you're using. Good luck in your effort to stop smoking. Stick with it, I know it's not easy, as I smoked for 20 years. Haven't smoked in 30 years. I quit after seeing most of my aunts and uncles die of lung diseases. Not a pretty sight. It's hard in the beginning, but each day will get easier. Be strong, and keep busy. Look at it another way, about 3 months or less of not smoking will pay for another Glock. Now....., that a darn good incentive.

    I know Glocks are reliable, however I wouldn't carry any gun I had not ran at least 200 rounds through first. Doesn't matter if it's a $300. Bersa or my $1500. Dan Wesson. Once in a while one will slip past QC, after all, they are human.

    Cool

    Good on the range time.

    As a throat cancer survivor I can tell you to definately stick with the no smoking decision.

    I just acquired my G36 today, and I quit smoking about 7 months ago. I don't even think about it anymore. It took me a few tries over the years to finally get it kicked, but now I just can't even imagine doing it anymore. Just keep reminding yourself of all of the reasons you want to quit. You have to want to quit for your own reasons, not anyone else's. I got to the point that everytime I had one I just felt like a slave to it. I didn't want to do it anymore. I just decided I wasn't going to do it anymore. Best thing I ever did...and I spend that money on guns and ammo. At least I have something to useful and productive to show for it. Everytime I open the safe or carry one of my guns I think about all of that money that would have otherwise literally gone up in smoke. Hang in there, and if you need any help you can always PM me and I'll help you any way I can. If I can quit, anyone can.

    LOVE my G36...and LOVE being a non-smoker even more. Hardest thing I ever gave up, but what a quality-of-life improvement. Hang in there OP...you'll be smoke free and craving free in no time. Kudos to you.

    Well, congrats on both accounts.....It looks like you made the decision at a rather young age, so just stick to it and you'll reap the benefits from the fresh air.

    ?????? You had to break in your Glock???

    I have a G30. Carry it a lot. Friend of mine has a G36. With it's thin slide it is quite an easy gun to carry. Slimmer than even the G26/19/17's! I wish they could somehow utilize the G30 grip and double stack goodness with the thin slide of the G36. Of course the slide may not be as thin as the G36, but maybe get it close to the 9's and 40's. Though, after carrying my G30 IWB for almost 2 years, I'm used to it. I wouldn't hesitate the carry the G36, however, the 10+1 of the G30 is worth that extra thickness. The only hard part with the G30 is carrying it's brick of a spare mag. Ugh.
