    You mean 1911 owners? :p It also depends on the steel frame now that I think about it. Its not like they're solid steel, there are grip panels and such attached that can give out. So if anyone has been to see Jurassic World, how about Owen's Marlin M1895SBL? I'm gonna have to get one of...

    Probably polymer. The more the gun can break up and the energy dissipate in more directions the safer it will be. Luckily magazines usually blow out and that makes a big hole for pressure to exit, even if the grip does blow apart along the way.

    Someone had a Federal .45 blow up in a FB group. In a Sig 1911. I thought .40 Glocks were supposed to be the grenades.

    Someone needs to make your avatar into a gif, @a6m5 . If you know what I mean. :lol:

    Made a few minor changes to my Glocks a few nights ago. Ordered a couple factory extended mag releases (really just the mag release for the large frame Glocks) and installed one into my G22. Sticks out way too far, I'm going to sand it down to about halfway between its length and the stock...

    Kind of weird that they're taking care of the purchase of the new one.

    Got a flashlight today (Inforce WMLx - its 🤬 bright...500 lumens, great spot with a nice big illuminated ring...wouldn't want to be the one looking at it) so of course I had to take pics. And I kinda liked the backdrop so I got the 300 out too.

    Kinda surprised that I didn't experience anything like that with my situation. Why not blame the backyard gunsmithed 300 blackout pistol since it wasn't professionally assembled.

    So @a6m5 any updates on the USP situation?

    I printed off the ORM-D label from the UPS page when I had to ship my ammo back to the manf. I dropped it off at a UPS location and luckily they didn't bother to ask what was in the box. UPS does require the ammo to be in a box within the shipping box though, and not loose enough that there...

    Hmmm. I thought they had to make those triggers independent and only fire one barrel. Multiple rounds fire per trigger function == machine gun.

    Just don't get a Taurus. Go Ruger or S&W. I was reading about the Ruger LCR in 357 a couple nights ago and how great it is to shoot, with a really good trigger and surprisingly good recoil characteristics.

    This could still be an Out Of Battery discharge. That is where the round would blow out. I'm not really sure how you would tell at this point. Maybe comparing the ruptured case with your other spent brass and see if you can tell how far it was in the chamber.

    From my understanding, the majority of semi autos have it because it will feed more reliably. I was researching this the other night because it seems to be a bit of a myth that Glock's in particular have an unsupported chamber, but it seems like many manufacturers do and that perhaps Glock's...

    That's what a pistol barrel with a round chambered looks like. I'm not putting that in the slide but I think the amount of case you're seeing is not abnormal. Semi auto pistols usually have what's called an unsupported chamber, that's what this is. Edit: So when there is excessive pressure...

    Range report: Took both Glocks out today. Goal was to put a couple hundred rounds through the G27 for reliability testing, and work on groups with both. Also joined "The GreenTip Connection" Facebook Group and they had a challenge to post a video shooting at a 10yd target. 5 rounds, reload...

    I wouldn't fall back on the NRA for this. Its the ammo manufacturer's fault, don't let them tell you anything different without sending them the ruptured casing and whatever else they request.

    I don't know about Fiocchi, being imported, but what I've heard from this sort of stuff (and my own experience with that 300BLK squib round), ammo companies are MORE than happy to replace your gun, replace your ammo, and probably anything else within reason to make you happy and stay out of court.

    Sounds like poor marksmanship to blame.

    Sounds like you just whack it out with a punch. If you don't have the nerve to do it (brass punch isn't going to damage it, steel might dimple the sight,but if you never need it again, that's fine) take it to a smith. Probably be a pretty cheap job.
