How Difficult would it be for someone with limited use of the left hand to attend a class. I can rack slides ,change mags and force my hands into a shaky weaver or turret but that's about it for the left hand. Never got much use back after my accident, unlike many of the adult children in the world now I realize there are some things were everyone doesn't get a trophy and I'm cool with that but curious about this course.

When we decided that the Glock was going to be my wife's and I duty/SD guns, I went to the armors class. I did 1 or 2 retainers prior to retirement. I was happy I went each time.

Since the Gen 4 is somewhat different, if they have one locally I might go.

Hi JMAC, do you have to bring any tools, apron, pistol etc.? regards, Mike



Nope, they have everything there. You will be working on their guns, and they are clean. They will send you home with a couple of goodies. You can order stuff there also.

I took this class earlier this year and it was a great class. The class instructors supplied the tools and the firearm. You receive a small parts tray and a Glock tool for take down. You also receive a printed Glock Armorer's Manual as a reference tool.

I'm afraid I walked out on the last one.

Don't take any real angst or criticism in that, I purposely wore a revolver so that I would not have any ammo that fit in any Glock but they insisted that no one in the room have any sort of ammo on them (everyone in the class was a police officer). I took them at their word and I wasn't going to lie to the instructor.

I decided I just could not live with that - the decision is all on me, the instructor was quite cordial and I'm sure knowledgeable and I even understand that they don't want ammo near Glocks since there have been so many negligent discharges in the class...but I cannot live with being disarmed (with rare exceptions like having an MRI)...just me. No harm no foul. I wish them well.

I've taken armorers courses from several other manufacturers - I have never been asked to disarm in any of them. I have been asked to pay attention and not have any ammo the caliber of the guns were were working on out on the table.

If a person doesn't mind being weaponless I imagine it is a good course.

Jim

It's been 15 years ago since my last one. I found it worth wile.
