I've cycled small sea gulls through my Glock 19 without a hiccup. This story is not surprising.....albeit really stupid.

The part I really enjoyed was the fact that he qualified the first few "funny" sounding rounds as just powder charges in his reloads that were "way off", as if that were perfectly normal and acceptable.

Just another reason to NEVER ask yourself the question - "Just exactly how STUPID can people get?". Every single time I think I've finally answered it, someone like this guy shows-up.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

Hmmmm one of the first things i learned in hunter safety at 10 years old was to check the markings on the weapon and use only said caliber in the weapon or i will probably die...just saying.
This proves that we were created, we did not evolve. We can't have evolved and yet have someone this stupid among us.
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
I can't believe that he put that video on you tube. Or just making a video like that??
Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!

I was duck hunting with a guy once back in the 70's, we were both shooting Remington mod 1100, 12 gauge. I noticed each of his shots sounded funny and his gun would have a FTE. Amidst his frustration I asked if I can look at his gun. He was trying to shoot 16 gauge shells in that 12 gauge !!! He clearly knew better, but some 16 's had gotten mixed up with his other shells. With nearly frozen hands he didn't notice the difference in size.
I was not impressed with my hunting partner but I was impressed with that 1100 doing its best to try and cycle those shells.
