    Using Glock 17 Mags in a 19 Will Get You Killed?

    You will over-insert a Glock 17 spare mag in your 19 and this will get you killed in a fight for your life! I've heard more than a few folks spout this one, in person and on the Interwebz. Here's my response. :D Enjoy!

    Obviously you need to find better info and the web is what it is. Why do you think it's called the web?

    I agree with you (that a larger mag in a smaller gun isn't an issue).

    I heard the argument differently, however. 'It' was said by 'them' that it was the way that a persons hand gripped the magazine while they were firing that slightly altered the angle of the magazine. This then caused a feed problem.

    Anywho, I agree with the conclusion, and that is a good video.

    wow. Then this must be the true kiss of death

    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    Thanks for taking the time to address this particular gun myth.

    Apparently they inserted the mag somewhere else that it did not belong.

    Paul how dare you dispute this.

    Obviously this was all staged and you banging the seated mag was faked.

    Great video and visual effects if they don't believe it now they never will.

    I carry a G26 and have used all lengths of 9mm mags during classes and matches without this happening.

    I did over-insert a G.I. 1911 mag into an Officer's ACP once.

    I had never heard such silliness before, but I'd also never heard it about a 1911 either.

    thanks for the posting, never heard of that myth before and know it's busted
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless
