Reply to "Blown up S&W Shield"

Could also have been a huge over pressure from bullet set back - I've seen some .40 JHP that my co-workers keep chambering, clearing, and rechambering that have MAJOR set back.  Luckily, I've learned to "chamber check" loaded pistols before we start shooting, and I THINK I've got most people educated to the dangers of constantly rechambering the same round.

 

Personally, this is just one more reason why I believe that the .40 S&W is one of the greatest problems in LE shooting circles now.  When it was FIRST introduced, it offered some advantages over 9mm due to bullet design (or lack thereof) - now I simply see no reason to put shooters or pistols through the stress of shooting this very high pressure round...

Blessed be the LORD, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle... Psalms 144:1
