Say you pull the trigger, but the your pistol doesn't bang. For pistols with exposed hammer, you can re-cock and shoot.

How do you re-cock a Glock? I am wondering???

textbook approach for ANY firearm that does not go BANG when you squeeze the trigger is to wait 60 seconds, with the weapon pointed downrange, in order to be 'safe' if it is a hangfire. Then remove your magazine, open the action and eject the cartridge. Inspect the cartridge, if there's a normal looking primer indention, I'd toss it. If it's light or non existant, I would likely chamber it again, sans magazine and try firing it again. If no bang then, follow the same procedure, and then discard the round.

Ditto. And it's probably the round, because we all know Glocks don't jam or misfire!

I would advise some formal training, or buy a good book, The Tactical Pistol, by Gabe Suarez is pretty basic. If you're not familiar with the "click-no bang" response, you need some training.
