Here is a little intro I got from the local gun shop owner:
Well just came across your site and say that i like it! i am a concealed carry holder in Arizona and carry a Glock 26 just about everywhere i go except school. If you would like to chat at all i would be more than happy to share any knowledge that i have with you or my experience getting a permit here in AZ. I do a take down and clean my pistols every about 200 rounds. you dont really need to in Glocks and H&Ks but sometimes i just want to. anyway. keep up the good work.
This guy cracks me up…”Never point the gun at anything you don’t want to shoot”…and then while he’s talking, he’s pointing the barrel right at himself. Granted, the slide is locked back and the mag is out, but still–you _never_ want to point an assembled firearm at yourself or anyone/anything you’re not willing to completely destroy. It’s just a really, REALLY bad habit to get into.
I also kinda raised my eyebrows at his saying that you shouldn’t field strip your weapon, rather to “keep it together as much as possible.” These weapons are designed to be field stripped by their operators–you’re not going to be doing a full disassembly. A dirty gun is more likely to get jammed when you least want it to be (e.g. during an encounter with a bad guy)–so keep that thing spotless–clean it thoroughly after every trip to the range.
