Fun story, but really not me: guy who used to do my job (old range bitch) retired several years ago. Went to work at some gun counter out of boredom.
One of his coworkers asked him to take him out to our range (retirees can still use it when nothing official is going on). Coworker of retiree just bought a G48. Old Range Bitch (ORB) has some old 9mm lying around - factory reloads from decades ago. We used to buy them as practice ammo for when we had MP-5s, and I’m sure he squirreled away partial boxes of leftovers.
ORB’s coworker shoots one mag, then hands it off to ORB. ORB fires 2 rounds. The 3rd Kb’s the gun. Cracked the frame behind the trigger guard, shoots the mag out, extractor goes into low earth orbit - just makes a mess of the gun. Complete case-head separation. Shows me the pics. Minor scrapes, no real injury.
I just thought it was fun they shot a gun that was maybe 45 minutes old and it blew up. No doubt bad ammo - so Glock likely will not replace it. He says he really liked the gun until it blew up. Now he thinks he has a flinch.
