Since we have been discussing squibs and the possibilitys of such I thought that this link could serve as a reminder of what could happen if we arent paying attention.
Some of these pictures will make you think...and some of them may make you want to tear up when you see what is commonly called a KB or a KA BOOM.
Click the link and check it out. There is good photography here that will make you cringe.

Eh, no worries. Should be covered by the warranty...
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all.
These pictures are why EVERY time I fire a weapon & it does not sound or feel right I field strip my weapon...
I noticed that there seemed to be weapons from most of the big manufacturers as well as from the folks you would expect to see...
I was surprised to see so many revolvers. I guess so many Walther P-22s showed up because so many people like to shoot them as fast as possible and not pay attention to what they can see/hear/feel... I like mine, but I never ammo dump on it....

Yeah...that pressure dont care if its a High Point or a high dollar custom .50 BMG.
It does not discriminate.
seems like a lot of springfield xd/xdm's represented in the pics. just saying.
looks like a whole lot of case head seperation issues.
that, and the seemingly normal high percentage of .40 s&w pistols.
A lot of nice weapons and one High Point ruined disproves the theory that only Glocks Kaboom.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

I have never double charged a case or fired a second round after the previous round sounded different/lighter recoil without clearing the weapon and making sure the barrel is unobstructed,Theres a couple of those that look like the operator could have received some serious injurys.

My favorite was the pistol with FIVE rounds stuck in the barrel.

I try to take my time when shooting. To avoid this. Although I have never had any light loads with this kind of issue. Wish I knew what it would sound like but haven't experienced it yet.
