    The only malfunctions I have had was when I went to training classes and did a lot of drills just for that reason. Also, I got a 9mm conversion barrel for a 35 and one brand of ammo wouldn't work well in that.

    I don't count either as a gun malfunction though. So, never for me as well.

    I'd have to say zero... even though I've had a couple that were mine own fault... by my own fault I mean reloading my own ammo and had at least one high primers and one or two that I did not run through a chamber size check check after creating my own reloads... so they were my own fault.

    I bought my G19 wanting it to be a poorly performing handgun. I had such a bias against the GLOCK phenom (as an old school 1911, Browning Hi-Power, S&W revolver shooter) that I was fully prepared for it to be junk, confirm my opinion, get sold & support my belief that I was a very smart pistol guy. It wasn't, I was wrong, it stayed, is carried, is trusted & I'm not NEARLY as smart as I had previously believed. Poll vote - one FTF in thousands of rounds. WWB. Good strike, no bang.

    It takes a real man to admit when his preconceived notions are wrong. Good for you!

    By the way - I would have considered that an ammo problem and not a gun problem - duds don't count, per the original post.

    Thanks for voting!

    I have a G30 and G19. M wife has a G26. Zero malfunctions with any of them, with the exception (as noted in my post on the Kahr poll)
    some very mild handloads, and I don't blame that on the gun.

    I put close to 3000 to my G19 1st ones that came out and no problems ..
    Had to sell it when I was down in luck...
    but no problems..

    I owned a G17 for about 5 years in the 90's. Practiced with it regularly firing a few thousand rounds over time. The few misfires I had were always with the cheaply made, pre-ban 30 rd mags.
    I still regret selling that gun.
    My latest is the G26. Only taken it out to practice once so far. Less than two boxes. Only issue I'm having is shooting low and to the left.

    I've never owned a Glock but I've seen a couple have feeding problems that were mag/ammo related. Overall I would have to say that they are pretty darn reliable.

    I just graduated from the police academy a few months ago, and we're all required to purchase Glocks for our duty weapon. I've seen quite a few classmates have malfunctions on the range, mostly a failure to feed. The solution was usually "tap and rack" to clear the malfunction.

    I have a G32 with no problems to write about so far, not even as much as an FTF.

    I voted never.

    I will clarify this by saying that my wifes G19 has had malfunctions but it wasn't the guns fault. To my knowledge, with an adult firing her gun it has never had a ftf, jam or anything else.

    When a young boy fired it, it would jam (fte) about every third round because he was not strong enough to keep from limp wristing it. I don't consider it a reliability issue with the Glock, it is a problem with the shooter.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
