Nice pics, I'm more into military rifles, but my first pistol will probably be a glock of some sort. After seeing a guy fire 10,000 rounds through one without cleaning, dropping it out of an airplane, shooting it (shooting a .22lr at the glock), shaking it up in a bucket of sand, talcum powder, mud, etc, running it over etc... I decided they were ok. If fired after all tests, he did mention the trigger pull got rough due to rocks. It wouldn't empty the mag, but it would fire the first shot and after hand cycling it would usually work from there on.
