    Only squib I have had was a .44Mag reload but had enough powder to push bullet out the barrel. Felt like shooting a .22Mag. Sure makes on look closer and pay attention when reloading. That was baout 25 years ago.

    Only one I remember was reloaded shotgun shell, the felt wad stopped at the end of the barrel. Do not think it had any powder.

    I have had several with Remington Golden .22 LR. I bought a brick for a day at the range with my brother, and they kept getting stuck in the barrel; but only in the rifles. I stopped buying them after that.

    aimhigh beat me to it. I was going to say congrats too. Now remember that odd sound, it could save your gun and you in the future.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    A squib is a phenomenon in gunmanship in which a bullet that is fired does not have enough force behind it to clear the barrel, forcing the next round to ram into it when fired. Can be extremely dangerous, causing damage to the firearm as well as injury, or death, to the user.
    I had to look it up.

    I've never heard that word used that way, to me a squib is a explosive charge used to jettison a bomb rack from an aircraft.

    Squibs are also the special effect explosives used to simulate bullet hits on film. It's all the same, really - just an underpowered explosion.

    I've only had a squib in a shotgun. In fact it was when I was goose hunting. When I pulled the trigger it looked like my gun farted
