The Mysterious Non-Firing Glock 17R

The impossible-to-own-legally Glock 18 and the we-can’t-have-nice-things-because-of-our-stupid-import-laws Glock 25 are the two guns most Glock collectors will never have in their collections. Next on the list is perhaps Glock’s 17R, with the “R” referring to the automatic trigger Reset. This allows the shooter to practice dry firing on a gun that can’t actually shoot a live round. Sounds great, but I’ve learned that the 17R isn’t quite the training pistol nirvana that it’s cracked up to be.
