I went out on six seperate occasions and never cleaned it. The 7th time is still shot fine so i finally broke down and cleaned it cause i felt bad abusing a nice gun. I have put well over 2000 rounds through that gun and have yet to have a single jam. Although as much as i love Glocks i probably would get something else if buying a .45. My next purchase is either gonna be a .44 special or a tactical shotgun.... i think i need the shotgun
I have personally felt no need to abuse my Glock like that. I have read countless testimonials where people have done that, and even one article in Guns and Ammo some years back where a guy took a Glock 17 and put over 10,000 rounds through it without cleaning it, then left it under water for a month or so and it still shot true. My Glock is kind of like my Tacoma. It just works. (How's that for swinging back on topic briefly?) I have owned many firearms over the years, and have only ever had two that jammed. One was a S&W semi-auto .22, and that used to jam like a son of a b!+ch. The other is my Beretta FS92, but that one I solved. I had a couple of no name mags for it, and it was only ever with the no name mags that it jammed. I trashed them and bought a 3 pack of factory 15 rounders (Fing Jersey still limits us to 15 rounds), and have never had a problem with it since.
ND, if your gonna get a .44 make it a .44 mag, you can always shoot specials through it to save some money and re-coil, but wouldn't it be nice to have the mag when you want it?
As for the shotgun, I'm right there with you on that, I just want to finish getting out of debt before I go buying more toys.
