Met the girlfriend units best friend and her husband who is police. Got a nice brand new Glock issued, forget what model but it was a full size fohty. Said it only had about 200 rounds through it.

Anyways he asked me if I knew how to clean it, and if you needed any special tools or cleaner to clean it . I thought he was just busting my balls for shits and giggles but I laughed then realized he was serious.

He brought it down I asked him to clear it and take it down since I was in the other room conversing. He tells me he doesn't know how to take it down. So I proceed to take it down and field strip it and show him what to clean. The gun still had some packing grease inside the slide around the rail area. But other than that it was absolutely bone dry. Not one drop of oil anywhere in it. He also didn't know he needed to oil certain spots on it.

Do they not teach you to clean/maintain your own guns or is there armorers that do that for you in the station?

Cops does not equal gun enthusiasts. No they don't teach them that shit. They reach them local, state and federal laws pertaining to the current local governments views on issues.

Right I understand that but its kind of an important element to their everyday jobs. I'd hate for it to jam on him because it wasn't lubed (I know, it's a Glock but still).

That's like a Nascar driver not understanding the fundamentals of how their car works.

Every agency that I know of field strips and cleans their own weapon. I know most of them are trained right at the academy on how to strip them and keep them maintained. Most departments have an armourer for any actual issues, but everyone cleans their own gun.

I attended the Glock Armorers Course when it was held at the Dothan Police Station. There were 2 civilians in the class along with 20+ police officers from the DPD and surrounding forces.

I have no reason to lie or stretch the truth here. He is not a reserve cop, but I believe he still in training. He was telling me about some prostitution arrests he made last week. And it was a bad as I portrayed.

How is he still in training and at home, with a duty weapon? Is he in a post-academy type training?

We teach our guys.

HOWEVER, as said, "police" does NOT equal "gun guy"... and I can tell you from first-hand experience that some guys are REALLY not gun guys and forget how to field strip their Glocks. Not many, but a couple. Interestingly, one of them is a pretty good shooter even though he only shoots at the annual qual.

We've instituted a monthly mandatory cleaning during the shift, in part to reinforce how to field strip weapons.

I believe the OP's story.

If you know how to take a glock down and lube it, you should know at least the basic 9 and 40 full size model since they have to be the most common of all glocks.

Hell I have met plenty of soldiers who dont know how to properly clean thier weapon it ammounts to them careing more about pussy and beer (incidentally they usually dont know how to properly handle those things either) than the one thing that can keep them alive when they need it most.

It seems hard to belive he wouldnt have an idea on how to do this unless he was trained on a different weapon and bought this one as his duty gun. You might ask him about that.

I am new to Glocks. I got my first 19 gen 4 a few months ago. Within a few days I had it detailed strip and was ordering aftermarket/polishing the internals. They all look the same on the inside. I've shot the 17, 19, and 26. I don't care for 40 calibers, therefore I am not sure what the model number is for that Glock, but his was a gen 4. When I asked him to field strip it he said he didn't know how, but he knew it involved having to pull the trigger.

Again, I have no reason to lie here. I was shocked, and figured the rest of the hive would find it interesting as well. I'm not the brightest bulb in the world, I couldn't even fabricate this story if I tried.
Link Posted: 10/6/2014 12:49:09 AM EST
At my place they taught field stripping once and if you don't practice, and arent a "gun type", it's easy enough to forget. Seen it happen.
Link Posted: 10/6/2014 12:53:00 AM EST
In my academy, we spent the first few weeks of pistol instruction just dry-firing, and going over operation, field-stripping / reassembling, and maintenance of our Glocks and 870s. Of course, there are still complete retards who have no idea what to do, as evidenced by all of the puzzled looks, beat-to-shit brushes in our cleaning house, and occasional stray recoil-assembly.

First, packing grease, you mean the gold "packing" grease, no it is not packing grease, those are wear in grease to help the weapon to wear in.
Second, most department discourages individual officer to service their weapon other than cleaning the barrel. As it was mentioned before, not all officers are gun people, and tend to have limited mechanical knowledge.

Stickman as much as I would love to agree with you I cant. Ive been a cop for 20 years now and sadly I've seen it. Now its not the norm as GD wants so badly to believe but it happens. Had a guy couldn't load or operate a Remington 870, same guy that honestly didn't know you had to rack the slide to chamber a round. He thought when you put the magazine in you were good to go. I ask one of his academy mates about this and he said they would pretty much load his pistol and put it in his holster. Had a guy tell me this week Glocks cannot be oiled, said they were designed for no oil and would not work if oiled. Picture of the female cop putting the mag in the AR backwards, seen it. I always checked the barrel of the shotgun in a vertical rack, gum wrappers, cigar butts, a condom once(no shit, used fucking condom.) Saw a guy using a loaded Sig as a hammerSaw a guy using his pistol mounted light to check addressed on houses. Seen some stupid shit with cops and guns, so yeah I believe it.

Sounds like my dad. Was a cop for well over 2 decades but barely knows how to maintain a glock 22/23 (his agency's weapons). Anything else and he usually gets me to show him, sometimes after he fucks something up first.

And the most effective ways to use those laws to provide a robust income stream for the government.

Since relieving people of their freedom can sometimes be dangerous they provide weapons which the revenue agent may or may not know how to use.

They had a small portion in firearms week that was dedicated to cleaning and maintenance
of your duty weapon in the academy I attended.

We have 2 department armorers, (I am one of them), who inspect all department weapons, and
replace any bad or out of spec parts twice a year. Usually after spring and fall qualifications.

Other than that, officers are expected to clean and maintain their own weapons, and we do have
occasional inspections to make sure no one is getting lax or not doing it. We are a small department,
have some who are "gun guys" and some who are not.

There is no need to oil a Glock. You can do it but there is simply no need for it.
