    Glock 19 ammo?

    I was wondering what people thought about buy bulk reload ammo (example from sportsmanguide) and use them as practice rounds.

    I thought I remember reading where Glock does not reccomend reloads.

    Not only does Glock not recommend them, firing reloads voids their warranty. Many people use reloads anyway, but do so at your own risk.

    From Glock - "The use of reloaded ammunition will void the Glock warranty, due to the unpredictability of the standards (SAMI/NATO) adhered to, since reloads of poor quality ammunition may not meet (SAMI/NATO) specifications, may exceed limits, and therefore may be unsafe."
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I hate firing someone elses reloads. I went to a range one time and bought some of their reloads, I had 4 hangfires out of 50 rounds. First time I had ever had a hangfire, scared the crap outta me. The accuracy was garbage as well.
