In 1990, I went through Glock Instructor School and Glock Armorer School in Smyrna. That same year, I wrote a magnum opus on the pistol in Guns magazine that detailed what I liked about Glocks and what I didn’t. Carl Walter, head of Glock USA at the time, was so furious he pulled seven figures worth of advertising out of Guns and its sister magazines, demanding that I be fired before the ad contract would be reinstated. Our publisher – the now deceased George von Rosen, God bless him – stood behind me and kept me there as handgun editor, where I still serve.
The Glock’s magazine completely stripped, as it should occasionally be for a thorough cleaning, is surprisingly conventional. Magazine Gaston Glock obviously was not too familiar with the normal takedown of a pistol’s magazine. The floorplate of most European pistols is removable by pushing up on the dimple on the base plate with a loaded cartridge and sliding the floorplate off forward. Not so with the Glock 17, where you just squeeze the sides of the magazine tube right over the base plate and the plate can be slid off frontwards, which allows the disassembly of the entire magazine for cleaning.
These pistols are actually growing on me. There is something certainly to be said for a semi-automatic pistol that can be that fast into action and right out of the holster and has a trigger that requires so short a stroke that strings of shots or follow up shots are more easily accomplished. Any of these three Glocks would make a fine concealed carry gun, obviously the little Glock 27 being the easiest to use in close concealment. This chapter is an excert from the Gun Digest Buyer’s Guide to Concealed Carry Handguns.
