Default Problem with my new Glock 17

It's boring. Functions flawlessly, hits what I aim at. I'm tempted to do bad things to it to try and make it hiccup.

If you haven't already, I'd say start using cast bullets in it. Mine gave me a few minor hickups that way til I figured out what it wanted, but has been boring since.

You bought the wrong gun if you wanted issues.

I also think you bought the wrong gun. As my name tends to imply, I like Glocks, I have a S&W .40 Shield and it quit me yesterday in the middle of a qualification shoot, reshot with my G21 in .45ACP and no problems. I will be calling S&W later this morning. I think I will be going back to a G23 for concealed carry, little bulkier but it is Reliable! Take care, John.

It's not what you do, but how you do what you do, that counts.
Just keep on keeping on!

I ran cheap FMJ 50 rounds and then my reloads x treme copper plated .356 dia: and 3.4 grains of bulleye .
I now need to upgrade few parts to drop the trigger weight slug the bore to se what diameter cast bullets to reload.
I havea 19 gen 3 and I load .357 cast no barrel leading at all

I have a G19 (1989 vintage) and I can't remember a misfire or anything. i'm just ticked that I can't figure why it shoots left. Is it me or the gun? I just installed an adjustable rear sight. Ran a quick 15-20 rds. thru it and seemed better after moving sight all the way right. Really discouraged about my shooting.

Perhaps it is a fan of Sanders?
