    Statistics again. Case failure. Had a ruptured case in my G17 years ago with similar outcome. Minor burn to my strong hand, but no broken parts on the pistol. I still have it and shoot often.....even at local matches. Scroll to the bottom of the thread in the link to find the other brands of pistol KB's. Looks like the last one is a Springfield following a SIG and H&K. Anyone who shoots a lot will likely encounter some issue down the road whether it be reloads or factory ammo, with a Glock, 1911, or whatever. Now......everybody run out and sell all of your guns before you hurt yourself. Better yet......just quit buying ammo. The shooting sports have risks the same as a lot of other sporting activities. Who likes rodeo or PBR? Anyone here skydive? Know the statistics of you being in an automobile accident tomorrow? Ever been struck by lightning? Won the lottery?

    Though I love and shoot glocks this tends to happen to glocks more then other guns. My co-worker had a bit more damage then the picture on this thread, and the first thing I asked him was if it was a reload in a glock. He asked why, and I told him the track record, now he will not shoot reloads through his glock anymore either.
    Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!

    I'm a bit confused on this also. I think the differences in the design as shown in this picture and the materials used to make the gun contribute to it.

    Frankly as a Glock lover, I think it's the amount of pistols they have sold. Glock is one of the most if not the most handgun manufacturer out there and the numbers might add to the problems.

    Seriously just google exploding glocks.

    makes sense. The stat to look at would be a % of Glocks that do this compared with other weapons. Of course I'm sure that's nearly if not impossible to do.

    I really think this says it all. The unsupported chamber does make it more prone to case failure.

    So when a case failure happens....would you rather be holding a mostly plastic pistol, or a mostly metal one?

    can you explain unsupported chamber. I have read this before, but don't 100% know what it is speaking of. Just a guess though, is it where the entire casing is not enclosed within the chamber, like in the picture?
