I have been giving this a lot of thought and I'm still unsure if I want to take the Glock Armorer's Class next week.
My question is "How will it help me"?
That kinda sounds a little selfish I suppose, but what would be the advantage of taking this class?
I can strip my Glock's down completely and reassemble them.
Input would be greatly appreciated.

Anything more you could learn about the weapon of your choice could only be a good thing!

The Biggest Plus I can see is if you cap someone with your Glock and there are any Mods you have the Armorers Credentials to say hey I did that and I am a Certified Armorer! Besides it can't hurt right?

From my understanding the armorers course gives an in depth disassembly , reassembly , and trouble shooting . Then there's the advanced class which. Think is a 2 day class. I'll be taking it soon !

I'm all signed up to take my class in November. Looking forward to it, cause I think over the winter I want to turn my G34 into a competition race gun. This armorers class will only be a solid plus for me !

Well I did stop by and talk to my city's police chief (small town) and stated that if I did take the class that I would be more than happy to service their Glock pistols at no charge. I feel as I do owe them that much for the protection and service they provide at no cost to me.

That's a really cool thing to offer!! All the more reason to be better trained!

An instructor is all I know? I really can't answer that question because I just do not know.

It's more than taking it apart. You'll learn things like how to do safety checks. And you can oder straight from the factory if you take the course and pass the written test.

Wow what planet did you just drop from? Your taxes (well, if you pay any) provide the money for the protection. Nothing is free.

Your Police Chief isn't going to need your assistance on keeping his guns maintenanced, it would be a hugh liability actually.

Oh yea I pay a pretty penny at tax time that's for sure.
Its not about where you come from, its all about where your going. Its a Southern Thing.
I do believe some departments require annual inspection of their Glock pistols to be performed by a certified Glock Armorer.

Police Depts have a Glock Certified Armorer available to them at a state level. Imagine the complications you'll end up in (for free) when a firearm fails to save a life or worse, and officer states for the record that it went off accidentally.

they tell you that your certificate is a worthless document if you install non factory glock parts or start modifing their weapons. Which im sure is a disclaimer just like "no reloads"

my agency sent me to the class, it was 8 hours of disassembling and reassembling a wore out glock 23. the only troubleshooting they teach you is checking for worn parts and problems caused by inproper reassembly.

The information is good to know but if I wasn't paid to go I would have learned from another source.

I understand that the second class is more about troubleshooting and they say you have to take the basic class several times prior to being able to take the advanced class.

Learning more about the gun, 2 Glock purchases a year at the LEO/blue label price, order parts directly from Glock at the armorer's pricing, Glock armorer credentials are always nice, and a free lunch.

The second class is what I'm more interested in but I understand I must be a Armorer before moving toward my goal of becomming an advanced armorer.
Thanks for the input, I was kinda wondering if they supplied the glocks or do you carry your own.

I had not planned on carrying one into the class, however I did plan on having it with me in the vehicle just in case. Good to know I wouldn't need to carry one in.
Thanks.
