    Multiple rounds of 9mm prevented from just sliding through the barrel & only held in place by the extractor.

    No, this would not be the ideal way to fire form brass.

    One reason I standardized my caliber on all my handguns. Luckily he was not injured.

    It's actually hard to believe that they fed and a couple of them even ejected.

    Wow... That's why I have three VERY different calibers... .22, .38, .45. Kinda hard to mix that up. Only caliber I can do that with would be my .38 (to .357), but that's not a big deal since the gun is a .357- it'll just be a bit of a shock when there's a 'boom' instead of a 'bang'.

    Cool! A new wildcat pistol cartridge. The .40/9mm gotch-ya'. Always thought a reverse bottleneck cartridge would be the bee's knees. Just fire-form 'em and go with it. Of course resizing would be problematic.

    A testimony to the strength and resilience of new cartridge brass. It actually effected a seal and didn't split. It didn't require much out of the pistol to contain it because the case held. If the case had opened up then the gas dump might have made for an interesting time for the shooter. It wouldn't take but once.

    Nope, some experiences in life are best passed by and I wouldn't knowingly do that one.

    Actually saw a guy on another forum suggest doing this vs. buying a 9mm conversion barrel in a Glock. Personally I wouldn't do it and think it is a dangerous suggestion. I can see how someone might do it accidentally and everytime I shoot do shoot 9mm and 40 at the same time myself. I guess it could happen to me. I shoot a 9mm 17 and a 40cal 23c so the mags are different. I don't shoot the 9mm much though so I guess I should just start preloading the mags for it to avoid this for sure.

    2 weeks ago, had a guy come up to me & show me the same thing & asked "Why is my gun doing this?" And yes, it was his "new" used Glock. I didn't know weather to laugh or cry.

    I always thought that you were supposed to be smarter than the gun, but in todays society I guess anything is possible.

    That was a pretty good video though.

    The first casing that he showed us was split, he was lucky.
