    And your point is......
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    glocks are boring. ive had mine for a long time and everytime i pull the trigger, all it does is bang and hit the target. its been doing this for thousands of rounds now and its getting in my last nerve. i have tried everything to make it malfunction but no luck. even switching to all kinds of ammo of different brands. no luck. when will i ever get the fun of FTF/FTE? can u guys recommend a gun that isnt so damn reliable? XD? STEEL?

    I had a malf (fail-to-feed) with my Glock, a 10mm G20 firing Double Tap Ammo 165 grain Golden Saber JHPs....I was actually shocked.

    I had a Glock 23 and had to get rid of it because it ate everything I threw at it. So I opted for it's baby brother the 27 - dang if it doesn't have the same issues. I guess it must be genetic.

    I have a Kimber Ultra and it is as boring as my Glock-36...click/bang, click/bang...hundreds of times in a row......no exciting problems to try and fix, just the same click/bang...

    Ah yes we all know the Glock is the fundamental building block of the universe. I own an XD, three Rugers, two Smiths and 0 Glocks. And dang the luck, never and I mean never had a FTF- FTE or breakage with any of them. Hmmm I wonder how I ended up with so many exceptions to the rule.
    I guess they aren't exceptions and one mans choice is just that. I choose not to own a Glock not because they are bad guns, they just aren't the gun for lefty me and Glock INC. made that choice for me. I would be very upset if it weren't the fact that their rivals took me into consideration when putting out a product that is equal in reliability and in most cases priced more reasonable. Oh and I can shoot lead outa my guns right out of the box and don't have to buy one of those pesky after market extra barrel thingies.
