    Help me out here. I don't dispute what your experience is, but I just don't get the rationale to NOT clean or lube a weapon, ever, in 16,000 rounds of shooting. Just wondering.

    originally i just wanted to see for myself if all the glock hype was merited. now that ive answered that question, i just want to see what it takes to make one fail. i knew going into this that its highly likely this could ruin this weapon and if it does, ill put it in a display case (its earned it!) and buy another one for shooting.

    self correction - my USPs have also given me 100% performance, although on occassion theyll eject a spent case into my forehead (not a "failure" i guess, but my glocks have never even done this).

    none. the XSE has performed flawlessly thus-far, but as i said in my original response i dont even have 1000 rounds through it yet so its to early to make a final determination. its looking good so far though.

    just to show a history of reliability that actually means something.
