    I'm now a Glock Armorer. Now what?

    So as of yesterday I am a Glock Armorer and live in Central NJ (Mercer County). I'm trying to decide if I do anything with it, or just consider the $195 I spent on the class as knowledge into how my G19 works and how to maintain / repair it.

    So what did they tell you about trigger jobs on the glocks? I decided to leave mine alone and keep the factory set.

    My question is even more basic then your reply. Do I even want to do anything with it and if so, how would I go about finding any customers and do I want people I don't know bringing a firearm into my home. I'm 15 minutes from Trenton and don't want someone showing up for repairs or an attempted to acquire anything from my home.

    I had thought about contacting my local PD's, and offer my service as free labor allowing them to offload the work and have another office available for real police work, but not sure how that would go over.

    The official line is had to sign something saying you would only use Glock parts and replace any after market parts.

    So, what do you WANT to do with it? Put out a shingle and make a few bucks on the side? Go for it.

    Honestly, though, in a group of modern shooters, if you asked who was a Glock Armorer, the response would likely be, "Who isn't?"

    Good luck, whatever you decide to do.

    Yep thought so. I think the factory trigger will be fine. I may send you a note if I have a question. but since I don't plan on a modification I don't think I will have any problems for a long time.

    As any business person will tell you, "free" is rarely a route to financial success. I doubt any department would want just any one working on duty guns, anyway.

    Another consideration is liability. I don't mean liability if some one uses a gun you worked on to commit a crime. I mean, what if Joe Spud has you work on his gun, then claims you did something wrong and it "went off all by itself"? Even a bogus claim can cost big $$. Keep that in mind.

    Wondered about that one myself...apparently the Glocks in Hungary break more than the Glocks in America.

    To me it is just something to hang over the reload bench and admire.

    There isn't a whole lot of things that you need to know about a Glock,3 pins and the whole FCG comes out,the slide disassembles fairly easy,so being a Glock Armorer is pretty much just a parts changer.
