    I have them in mine.

    I dont, but I found out they make one that included a Glock armorers tool in the plug. Will have to look into that one.

    Plug

    I do. I have a plain one now, but I'll probably upgrade soon to the one with the punch built in:

    Never had a problem with mine. It makes the gun easier to speed load too. Mag doesn't catch on the opening, the plug guides it in.

    I have them in mine. Keeps dust bunnies out & the plugs I use also have the armorer's pins in them to aid in stripping them down.

    Aw, man, that means I have to get new ones that have the armorer's tool like you're describing. I had not been aware that was available. Got a link to a source?

    I have one and it's a very nice addition to the chopped grip Glock 36 for very obvious reasons.

    Several years ago I found a small spider had taken up residence in the backstrap cavity of my Glock 23. Since then, I think the plugs are a good idea.
