    Yes it was raining on Sat and then we ran late and had to finish using flash lights. That was the best practice i have had in a couple of years. Shoot house, dark, muzzel flash, shadows, flash light, one hand shooting, close, far, doors, corners, no shoots - It was a great last 2 stages.

    1) Put steel sights on your Glocks. Affix them with LT Red.
    2) Switch out for the NY triggers springs.
    The drop safety spring is weird- either a factory fluke, or not reinstalled in its channel.

    Have fun!

    Among rare things (eel's knees, steak eating hindu, honest politician) making 3 GLOCK pistols lay-down in rapid succession is WAYYYY down the probability list. Thanks for reminding us (the GLOCK faithful) that there are NO absolutes. Keep us posted with any further cosmic anomalies. Good Luck!

    The front sight was steel! I found the screw (with Blue locktite) but not the sight! It looks like the screw "BROKE".
    The trigger spring was a stock Glock - I have up-graded to Wolff but I will try the NY spring.
    I have never seen or heard of the safety spring issue. It was functioning for over 1000 rounds since it was installed. It just kinked.

    Metal Fell out? you sure it was a glock?

    I would never have thought I would have 4 Glocks go down in less that 2 weeks.
    Just another reason to leave the plastic to the kiddie toys.
    The muzzle end of a .45 pretty much says, "Go Away" in every language.

    Fast is fine, accuracy is final. Learn to be slow in a hurry.

    The only"GOOD" part was that they all functioned with a little help. They never stopped shooting. You have got to love their warrior spirit!!!
