Glock Performance Question
My department has a routine we use when a misfire happens. "Tap,Rack,Continue" After reading a post where the author stated, that he had mags falling out of his Glock, and someone replied it could be caused by slamming the mag into the gun. I insert my mag until it clicks in place, no problem. Could this "Tap,Rack,Continue" be doing harm to the gun. I train with misfires 1 time a week, and I tend to give it a smack, vs a "tap".

I can't imagine slapping a mag in can be more destructive to the weapon's functioning than the jolt of the actual firing. But then I'm not a Glock man

In the nearly three years I've been firing my Glock, I have had only one malfunction, a "stovepipe" incident. My magazines have never fallen out of the gun. Like the previous post said, I can't imagine slamming the mags in doing any more harm than the normal wear and tear of firing the weapon.

And you have to think about this, under stress, your fine motor skills are GONE. Which means yuo won't have the presence of mind to "tap" the gun. You'll end up slamming it anyway. Practice the same way you'd do it in the field.....slam it in there.No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13

I carry a Glock. I've had the magazine fall out on me once or twice at the range. Each time it was my own fault for not making sure it was properly seated (usually following an "administrative reload"). Tap-rack-fire if the threat is still present was the solution...
SLAM that magazine home! Guns shouldn't be delicate instruments!

Slam it home, you fight as you train.Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.
Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.
May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

I would slam it as well...I have never had a misfire with my Glock and never had a mag fall out. Stovepipes are usually caused by "limp wristing" the weapon. Mags fall out because they were not slammed in all the way and locked. Don't be skeered! You aren't going to hurt the weapon.K-9 When the door pops...The bullshit stops!
Go ahead run...I'll even give you a head start!
