    LCP Epic Fail due to Squib Load!

    My title may be a little misleading because I don't believe it was the LCP's fault. Hit the link. It's a brief and interesting read.

    It's not the weapon that makes me hesitant to fire upon someone at long range, but the legal ramifications and plethora of good prosecuting attorneys.

    According to the link it sounds like that was ammo/operator error and not the fault of the pistol for having taken another shot after a squib.

    Even though I don't like many Ruger products, it's not the firearms fault. It clearly seems like the ammo and operator to me. Now back to bashing Ruger! LOL

    That frame sure didn't hold up well I have seen many kabooms, but that one is missing a big part of the frame!

    He must have been limp-wristing it

    Can't believe he wasn't hurt and just a little sore.

    I've always wondered how squib loads have enough power to eject and load another round. A lot of times guns stove pipe just from budget range ammo that is a little underpowered.

    You know why he was limp-wristing it don't you? He had to pull so hard on the dang the trigger to get it to fire in the first place!

    kind of unrelated though. A burst barrel from a squib vs. a case rupture from being partially unsupported?

    Pay attention to what it says in the link. The squib didn't cycle the gun. The shooter didn't recognize the squib for what it was, and racked the slide, chambering the next round. The gun actually held up pretty well, given the circumstances.

    I did that and got 123,000 results.
    I googled "ruger kaboom" and got 1,570,000 results.
    Whatcha got to say about that?

    Regardless, that has nothing to do with this failure.
