You are just reading it wrong, he is referencing where he shot the G21 with a .22 .

I think the number one thing here is that Glock will perform in any hostile condition. The only drawback of Glock's is that they are not for looks, they are ugly, and honestly they lack soul. They look like they were designed by machines for machines, a tool, without character. This is why the JM Browning designs will live on forever simply because Glock may function but few pick it up to admire it. I think Glock could easily change this, maybe contour the slide a bit, put some lines in it, add a saftey option for those who want it, etc.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Personally, I think glocks are great looking guns. If you want engraving and precious walnut stock carvings- then buy a winchester commemerative to hang over the fireplace. Glocks look like a professional. When someone sees a glock, they are thinking "ah crap- they mean business" I will slightly agree that the older glocks without finger groves or sight rails are somewhat less attractive to me- but as far as J.Browning's design is concerned, I think to myself on sight
A.Is the gun going to function properly ever time?
B.If it does, how much money did they spend to get it to do so.
C.What sort of conditions would that gun in particular hold up in?
D.IF or WHEN it malfunctions, how much is going to be spent in repairing the break down?
I'm the sort of guy that likes knowing my gun has a higher survivability rate if I dropped it out of a moving vehicle at 80mph. I think of glocks as the Volvo's of the gun world. They can take a hell of a beating and still function, and while the earlier models may have been blocky (yet utilitarian), the later models are starting to have more curve/sex appeal and still maintain the utilitarian part that made them famous.

In other words. When it goes bang instead of click. That is a beautiful thing. Specially if S is hitting the fan.

bigbore...

In a word - YES. Your 21 has proven its durability. I am sure hoping my G19 is at least half the "man" your 21 is.

Reading through most every reply here there are three things I've recognized:

(1) a real effort to legitimately test and honestly proof it all with photos, videos, and text; and,

(2) an example of a practical, rather than theoretical, critical examination effort to prove a subject's reliability under stressed conditions; and,

(3) that this was done without a "jaundiced eye" or snide or snickered comment when other brands tested had problematic results.

Thank you, big bore... and thanks too, to those who helped you.

Don't get me wrong, I like Glocks, owned a M17 years ago and I'm planning on buying a M21 and do the combo caliber longslide 10MM thing

But give me your Glock 21 frame for an afternoon anf I'll let my Rottweilers have at it. Nothing survives a Rottweiler! ;g


I'm new and figured my first post should be a doozie ;f

Welcome. Many here used to own Glocks or never have but still stick around because this board is that great. Hope you enjoy your stay here, as I certainly have. You find all sorts of practical information, BullShnikes, trolls, more good information, humor, OAF (Ox and Alex Forum) where all goofiness abounds, politics, religion, and 43,904,523,435,234 opposing views. It's great!!

I can tell you what Rotties do have a tough time surviving......Two 158 grain semi jacketed soft points from a S&W model 19.....I hate foot chases through the ghetto, lots of bad dog owners turning out bad dogs.

On topic my first year G21 is one helluva good gun still going strong.

Yes, and out here in the real America there are lots of well-bred and trained Rotties, family dogs and home guardians. My gal and I have owned Rotties for over 20 years and never had any trouble. We just rescued a nice little affectionate 1 year old purebred Rottie girl from the pound and she's going to make a great family addition after some training

The problem is the ghetto inhabitants, not the ancient Rottweiler breed, THE most intelligent canine on the planet,
which was carefully, scientifically genetically planned and bred by Germans for over 2,000 years from war/guard dogs left in Rottweil, Germany by the retreating Romans

Factory loaded ammo is pretty clean. I see nothing impressive about shooting a bunch of rounds through a clean firearm. I would expect any moden production type pistol to be able to do the same.

Can we expect any new "tests" to be conducted on the ol' 21? ;f

I'm basically all out of ideas. I also just added up the cost of the ammo I put through it the last 2 years. Even at dealer cost, looking back, I spent way too much money which I wish, I had spent on other things now. There were several months where I was going through 1K rounds a week just for $hits and giggles, and to see what it looked like after 13K rounds. Figure $150 per thousand rounds of good brass ammo...

bigbore, let's not get into buyer's remorse; you took a journey to prove a point and having proved it, you have graciously given hundreds or more of GLOCK owners the evidence they need to have great confidence in their personal defense selection(s).

Thank you, sir.

How about running it with a few thousand rounds of Wolf for a while? Be nice to see that crap put to a rest.
