With Glocks you have to make sure you have the updated magazines with the metal insert. Otherwise the plastic can swell & you have the possibility to get a stovepipe due to a misfeed.

For a few years when I wanted my own firearm to use on the job I shied away from them because of the plastic magazines but when I found out why they made them that way I reconsidered. Drop a plastic magazine & it retains its shape. Drop a metal one & you get some nice dents.
I've shot my buddy's Glock and I really liked it. The trigger wasn't too heavy and not too light either. I've never shot a Kimber though. Aren't these what SF guys carry?
