    I wonder if the primer compound getting rattled loose issue could be drastically reduced by a controlled lowering of the slide in order to chamber the round? That would take away a lot of the inertia that a full force slide lock lever release would impart to a round.

    When I recharge any of my weapons with carry ammo, I always ease the slide forward with just enough speed to make sure the round has slipped up under the extractor claw.

    In theory that sounds to me like it would take care of the problem; I don't think I'm willing to bet my or my family members' lives on it when it's such a small price to pay for the peace of mind. But to each his own. It is a good idea though.

    After the range, reloading my carry and defensive pistols, I always ease the slide forward with defensive ammo. I then smack the back of the slide once or twice with the heel of my palm to assure it's in battery. It's worked for me.

    Whether it is a primer problem or bullet setback, pretty obvious to me that the officer didn't have a very good knowledge of firearms, if he had chambered a round 100 times and wasn't the least bit worried about it. Not that it is necessary I guess, just seems so strange to me, in my part of the world.

    We have a whole generation of guys that never grew up shooting, hunting, and learning how to clean and work on guns. To me, that is sad. Our fathers plinked .22's after school, his generation probably played video games. (because that was all they could do)

    Yup, interesting for sure.. I thought it was going to be another "bullet setback" thread. First time I've heard of something like that. Thanks for the heads up...

    The Corbon DPX 9mm on left. The Corbon DPX 38 spc on right (revolvers don't have the issue).

    I grew up at the Gwinnett County Police Department. Great department, great read! Never knew about the possibility.
