    A minor kaboom

    I am NOT having fun in this class. A case exploded in my gun and caused a minor kaboom. No injuries except sparks flew into my face (ya safety goggles), the magazine dropped and my hand had some minor gun powder residue.

    Ouch, was that a case failure or did it fire out of battery?

    Glock 19. And fortunately, it was my instructor's gun, so no damage to mine.

    That looked like a 9mm case (as I'm not a Glock nut.)

    In your case setting off good fireworks of the Indian type (illegal in most cities) maybe the safer saner course of action. I've had similar injuries and I'm still here with all my slightly scarred digits. In a few days you'll stub your toe or hit your head and completely forget about your hurt finger.

    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Assuming this was a reload?

    The force is not with you on this one - be careful!

    Looks like the gun fired while still slightly out of battery.

    First your Glock "breaks", now your instructor's Glock goes "kaboom". So what do these two incidents have in common? Hint: it starts with a "G".
