So, DirtyGirl, my Glock 34, was having a pretty big problem with jamming a few weeks ago. I was pretty horrified and upset, because, well, you know, it's my DirtyGirl, my gun, she needs to work when I want her to, when I expect her to, when I demand that she do so, flawlessly and without question or complaint. User error is bad enough. Equipment failure, while I understand intellectually that it happens, needs to be at an absolute minimum.

However, she seems to be back! I've now shot about 400 rounds through her with nary a single jam to be had anywhere. :hearts:

I'm still not sure what the problem was. I shot a match in which I got my magazines really (really) full of mud. Though I wiped them down after each stage as best I could , the gun performed flawlessly during the match (though User Error was a problem :upeyes: ). It was a week later that it became apparent that there was a problem, when I was practicing at a range and then again at another match. So, I gave her over to a Glock Guru and who swept her away :motorcycle: while I nervously awaited her return :tequila: . And now she's back and lo and behold, Glock goodness reigns over my world once again.

I'm not sure what he did to it. He talked, and I heard "Wah wah wah blah wah, rails wah trigger bar, WAY too much oil." Whatever. I'm a chick. We like lotsa lubrication. :animlol:

I think I'll take the Glock Armorers course in January.

I learned that Glocks are entirely opposite of Kahrs. Kahrs like to be nice and slick and wet. Glocks....just a drop here and there. Only where the manual tells you.

Glad she's back and in good shape. Happy shooting!!!!

I've not cleaned, lubed, broken down or otherwise done anything other than SHOOT my guns in the last... ohh... 6 or 7 months. :shocked:

I don't have a problem with that.....do you? I mean, you actually shoot 'em? :supergrin:

As often as I can.. every few weeks or so. Certainly not as often as I'd like though.

I know what you mean. I would have loved to do some target shooting on the outdoor range since the temp has been in 50s. But, it's a tough thing to do with school work and holiday stuff....

I get out usually every Tuesday with a group though...."identify and engage threats"! :)

Yeah, I know what you mean too. I can do the most intricate needlework and crosstitch and be fascinated by it for hours, but cleaning a gun? Meh. Not so much. I just spent a couple hours this weekend at a friend's house with him showing me how to clean an AR, my shotgun and a several of my pistols, and while it was mildly interesting, I was actually much more interested in what his wife was doing in her sewing area.

<shrug> I figure it's just genetic. I love shooting guns and can listen to the guys talk about them for hours, but actually messing around with all those little parts holds little fascination yet. I only like to check the pieces out when they've actually broken. Then it's pretty interesting. For a minute.
