Tom Clarke™ and Lenny Bolton with ATAC TV™ Firearms Channel discuss the reliability of most modern handgun platforms. ATAC TV Staff considers reliability the most important aspect of any firearm under any type of conditions. Most handguns are very accurate and most are reliable in range type environments. Reliability comes from the continued functioning of the handgun under the most extreme conditions to be worth having and owning, especially in a tactical situation.
The list of modern handguns is huge, but to name a few such as GLOCK, H&K, Springfield, Sigarms, S&W, Wilson, Kimber, etc, that are mostly reliable, well-built and rugged firearm platforms that will perform if handled in the proper manner. This includes complete maintenance and care as recommended by the manufacturer. Field and detailed cleaning of the weapon are a “must” with inspection of the wear parts to maintain the reliability functions. Many handguns require additional maintenance over other brands to continue to function reliably. This is something you need to determine when purchasing and/or deciding which firearms are right for you and your intended purpose.
If you plan to replace parts of your handgun with the latest modification products, the reliability factor of your stock pistol will drop like a rock. Not all aftermarket parts are bad, but some products seem to be the “Answer to a non-existent problem. Products of this nature are garbage, a waste of money and have no place on a reliable firearm. This firearm, if used tactically, is a tool. Anything that distracts from that basic function should be avoided. Your handgun should go “bang” each and every time you press the trigger. If not, either you have added parts to distract from the intended purpose or you own a handgun that would not be functional enough to bet your life on. You must choose what the intended use of this handgun is for in which environment and working situation to be encountered. This is how you should select the correct handgun for your needs based on what you are going to use it for.
