I done dropped my Glock in the toilet

Like it says. I’m trying to figure out the best way to clean and disinfect it. I don’t want to use bleach, since that can corrode the metal, but I’m also a little worried about nonpolar solvents like alcohol, since I don’t know whether they could harm the plastic. What cleaners are safe?

I’ve never taken my gun apart besides field stripping. Do I need to do more?

A guy that owns a local gun shop says he puts his in the dishwasher. Pretty sure he was serious.

My biggest question, how the hell did you drop your gun in the toilet? LOL or is this whole thread just a metaphor for Glocks are s***?

LOL. I experimented with a new holster position on my belt. My pants flopped and the Glock plopped.

There’s more than one reason to have a retention holster.

My guess is the holster slid when he undid his belt to take a wiz.

I’ve dropped a few things in the toilet, but never my gun. LOL. Anyway, your Glock should be fine if you dry it out quickly. The lower frame only has a few metal parts, so not much damage can occur there. You could probably dry it quickly with a hair dryer (on low heat).

I would definitely disassemble the slide to ensure that the firing pin channel is properly dried out. As for disinfecting, I would use rubbing alcohol. It evaporates quickly and shouldn’t melt any plastics.

separate the slide, drop the whole gun into some isopropyl alcohol. Let it sit for a bit ( go have a poop), make sure it has been placed somewhere where it can not escape and jump into the toilet again.
Than allow to dry, than drop the slide in some diesel for the night.

If you’re worried about the alcohol damaging the plastic just try it in a small spot before using thoroughly

Alcohol will not harm your Glock… I would take the parts out if the slide and frame. The springs for the takedown and mag release should be good to leave where they are.
