We live in a society where mechanical skills are less highly valued than the ability to gather Facebook friends and Instagram followers. Where replacement trumps repair, and repair is some other guy’s job. So I have no doubt that the vast majority of GLOCK owners know little to nothing about how their striker-fired handgun actually works. They only know their GLOCK goes bang when they pull the trigger.
Which is, it should be said, enough. The odds that they’ll need to fix their firearm on the fly are almost as small as the number of XD owners who admit GLOCK perfection. To be fair, I imagine a fair number know how to take a GLOCK apart and clean it.
How deep is your firearms knowledge? Can you fully strip your gun and explain every moving part’s function? Or are you one of those gun owners who concentrates on your firearm’s functionality, and that’s enough?
