    That's good survival if you ask me!

    Wow, that does it for me, I'm going to be a true blue auto guy. Tingling hands is as far as I want to go.

    Let us assume - for discussion' sake - that your first (defensive) shot thru a semi - is a squib and you do actually realize it. You do not (again thx to Murphy) have a BUG this day.

    WTH do you do??? In my book I am screwed, royally!!
    I say you throw the gun at him like they used to do in the old Superman show when they ran out of ammo....

    Ever notice that Superman took the bullets but ducked when they threw the gun?.......LMAOOOOOOOO

    Seriously though, time to fall back on your tactical folder or risk going hand to hand.

    1 way to possibly avoid a squib in your carry loads is to weigh em. If devoid of powder, it should weigh less. Got this idea from a PD magazine. Of course will not help ID a bad primer.

    rocky - this can work but not IMO reliably enough. I screwed up on some 9mm loads a ways back - just not sure of about 20 rounds. Weighed them and found most but in the end - pulled whole lot!! Trouble was, ''looking'' for a 5.5 grain discrepancy was hard - I had mixed brass and cast bullets - so weight tolerance was large.

    I would tho reckon to catch mistake rounds with say 44 mag - where I'd be looking for a 24 grain discrepancy perhaps.
