Do you fire reloads &/or +P ammo through your Glock?

Reloads, all the time, sometimes loaded to max velocity and pressure (for standard loads).

+Ps only get used in the '30, never tried em in the '26.

No, I personally do not use reloads or +p ammo in any firearm I own.
Any specific reason?

Are you or were you ever concerned of KB using reloads?

My 2 cents...

Any specific reason?
Yes...

The Glock manual does contain a warning against using reloaded ammunition:

"The use of reloaded ammunition will void the Glock warranty, due to the unpredictability of the standards (SAMI/NATO) adhered to, since reloads of poor quality ammunition may not meet (SAMI/NATO) specifications, may exceed limits, and therefore may be unsafe."

...and I never saw a need to use .45acp in +P

4 boxes of Corbons came with the G30 when I bought it, all +Ps...have shot it at watermelons, cantelope, and other fun stuff. Now I'm down to 1 box of "flying trashcans".

All the other ammo I shoot is reloads that I made myself.

I cannot recall the last time I bought factory ammo in anything other than .22LR and 12-ga (can't reload .22s, don't reload 12-ga...yet).

NATO 9x19mm is loaded hotter than SAAMI +P. +P wont hurt a 9mm glock in the slightest. Infact its weaker than what the gun is designed for.....
