    Why do you say that? Do lead rounds, even 230 gr. round nose have problems feeding?

    It's because of the polygonal rifling in the barrel. Any handgun with a polygonal barrel are not supposed to have lead bullets shot through them. Look at the business end & if it kind of looks like an outline of a nut, it's polygonal.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I know Kahr, Glock, I thing Springfield's XD, & some Sigs have it. Again, I might be incorrect on this.

    As to the G-36, it sure seemed that the problematic ones were/are the early ones. Mine was an early one ('05/'06, I believe), but it's trouble-free. I did sell it to a friend, but am getting it back.

    My issue with it was that it's basically the size of a G-19 (& other models that are the same size) & I didn't see the point at the time. However, the longer slide helps in appendix carry, for me, & so I'm getting it back. I found it to be the best shooting of all the Glocks I've tried/own & the slim, single stack grip sure helps in CC, IMHO.

    The point about its limited capacity vs revolvers is interesting. However, while I grew up & learned on revolvers, the Glock's trigger makes for better follow-up shots for me. Also, there's the issue of quick reloads. I agree that the likelihood is low & might be more "area specific". If you live in a city or area where crime is relatively high, then something that can be reloaded quickly can be a plus. Also, the Glocks short/light trigger plus short reset are pluses over the revolver. Revolvers don't have short resets.

    I do, however, understand those that prefer to carry a revolver. I have a S&W 442 & have & do carry it now & then.

    Anyways, staying on track (Sorry about that), the G-36, especially if it's a trouble-free one, is an excellent gun.

    Keep it.

    I purchased a G36 last month and have put 1000 rounds through it already in the past few weeks. It's been absolutely flawless with all types of ammo I've thrown downrange. I use a Galco Combat Master leather holster worn on my belt and tucks to the body nicely without any printing. I don't put myself in situations where there could be roving gangs to worry about so the 6 +1 configuration I keep it in plus 2 extra mags is sufficient enough to stop a threat.

    This being my first Glock, I'm really impressed with it and enjoy knowing when the trigger is pulled we're always in business.

    I don't get it...last I knew, there was only one modern auto that was a true southpaw capable hangun. The smith and wesson M&P line. I must be missing something here...I have owned and carried a Glock 36 and last I knew, it was NOT a southpaw gun.
