    EVANSVILLE - Out with the old, in with the new.

    Nearly 300 Glock pistols have been replaced at the Evansville Police Department after some guns started having mechanical problems.

    There haven't been any accidents with the faulty guns, but the recall isn't to be taken lightly. The assistant police chief says he can't remember the last time equipment malfunctioned.

    It's not too often that an officer needs to use his or her gun, but if caught in an emergency, the Glock can't fail.

    EPD's 292 pistols have been recalled by Glock after the springs failed in the back of some of the guns.

    "For whatever reason, we had 11 guns on our department where this part had broken off," says Chuck Knoll, the officer in charge of firearm training. He shows NEWS 25 where the gun broke.

    The 10-year-old guns still functioned fine, but EPD wasn't taking chances.

    "It wasn't a safety hazard, it was more of a mechanical situation--every one that broke, we still took back out on the range and fired and they still worked," Knoll says.

    EPD Returns Broken Guns - NEWS 25 - WEHT: Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro-
    This was a known problem in some of the ~1999 .40 Glocks.

    Looks like Evansville had a handful of pistols with issues (all of which still worked) and Glock replaced the entire lot.

    I guess that's why somebody must have very recently changed the accepted and long-standing definition of the word "PERFECTION."

    I'm glad to hear that they train 5 or 6 times a year. I wish that my dept would do that. We only do firearms twice a year and simunitions once. But the village has to save money some how, right?

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Yep, they need to pay for all the social services so that the street people can be warm, rested and well fed to be able to commit their crimes.

    If broken, and or, needing recall equals perfection I will stick to a different kind of perfection.

    Any manmade item can and will fail at some point, even man himself. That being the case, I'm not a Glock "fan" but I don't totally dislike them either.

    Im not a glock fan, but after seeing tests where parts are flying off after firing several thousand rounds nonstop and it keeps firing well that speaks for itself.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    10 year old guns too... I don't think I'd let this bother me if I wanted a Glock.

    Ten Glocks in the same department suddenly fail...all with the identical spring problem? OOOOOKAAAAY! Anyhow, I'm still gonna keep my 19 and 23. They are not exactly pretty, but they've always worked for me.

    Nice to hear that some PO's actually train more than once or twice a year. From where I sit that would give me more faith in the fact they might possible be able to hit their target(s) with less than 40 rds. They may all have the best in guns and calibers, but if they are unfamiliar with the idiosyncrasies of their personal weapon, they are a menace to themselves and the community they serve & protect. My range is owned by the PBC of a local Incorporated Village, and they rent the range to other LE agencies to hold qualifications---and believe I have seen the best and the dregs as well. "Doc"
