your information is, like many u tube videos, incorrect.

you do not have to recertify each year.

No apostrophe needed since "sentences" is a plural rather than a possessive.

The majority of Glock owners know how to field strip a Glock; few know how or feel confident in doing a complete disassemble. Those that think they can, usually struggle putting it back together and sometimes loose parts. Are there folks out there that can take apart and put back together any Glock...Yep!

Just like I know several who can tear down an engine and put back together with their eyes closed, including myself....I'm not sure I would use them in analyzing/trouble shooting my engine, I'd probably take it someone who has more knowledge. Although Glocks are simple, many still struggle with the details.

I've see several where they have lost the firing-pin spring/caps and lubricate the firing pin channel too much.

YMMV

Yes Sir! I still remember the day that my spring loaded bearing went sailing across the horizon, never to be found. I learned to appreciate glockparts.com very quickly.

You are already several times more skilled than a Glock certified armorer. An armorer is not - NOT - even close to being comparable to a skilled gunsmith or anyone else with the experience you already have.

That's one of the reasons Glocks are such a reasonably priced gun compared to many. They were specifically designed for slap-together-assembly by monkeys, so that they would not require the skills of a gunsmith during assembly or for most (hardly any actually) repairs. I could teach a bright 12 year old in only about an hour, to completely assemble new Glocks in only a few minutes each. It's that easy.

An armorer gets more training than that of course, because they are expected to understand enough about how the mechanism works so that they can do trouble shooting, but it's still very minimal training & VERY quick to get through it, and does not involve anything you could really call gunsmithing (metal cutting & fitting) at all.

He's right - it IS so easy a cave man could do it.

Too many people in this world have an inordinate fear of screwing up anything mechanical, so they never try to learn, and never realize how easily they could become an expert in such things if they would only ditch the fear and try.

My hats off to a glock cert. person or anybody else that has paid the money and got there certs for a engineering idea based on service. And lived to not kill anybody.

I have enough factory cert's to make me a brain child in the boiler, chiller, control, pump world. You would think I was priceless. If I make a mistake the whole world comes down on me.

A glock fails a few folks may die. I screw up with a boiler, chiller or one of it's controls. I can level a city block!

And I will teach anybody at the drop of a hat. Ask and I will teach!

A Glock? Yesterdays new's. All they take is a 3rd grade education too understand.
