I got precisely zero training through the army on the Hi Power before being issued one, and afterwards just had a one of the infantry guys run me through TOETs on it, and I definitely wasn’t the only one. My unit had several NDs with pistols during my deployment and I’m not saying they wouldn’t have happened with Glocks but it might have helped.
My rifle coach was in the Navy in WWII, and he used to tell us the ceilings and floors at his base used to have holes in them from all the NDs from kids like him and the M1911.
