    Moral of the story; don't shoot someone when your Glock is in a ransom rest.

    In all seriousness I'm sure any other poly frame gun would flex like that, and if Glocks have trouble cycling in a ransom rest, I would bet other guns do to.

    I don't get it.

    To me, it seemed like the point of the video was to relate magazine fullness and its effect on slide velocity to the ability of the gun to eject the empty. If that's the case, then the nice little slo-mo video proves nothing. With an empty magazine and thus the least drag on the slide, the gun did not eject; it only ejected the empty case when the mag had 10 rounds in it, when friction was substantially higher. Further, as a data analysis junkie, I see the the slide velocity at the end of its travel (arguably more meaningful than slide velocity early in the slide travel) shows only about a 7% difference between empty mag and full mag condition. I can't imagine that's enough to make a difference.

    Am I taking too technical a look at this? I'm just not impressed with anything more than how the Glock frame distorts when the gun is fired.

    Have any of you ever seen a video of a compound bow being shot in slo-mo?

    Might make you think twice about shooting a bow if you had never shot one before. That being said, I was an avid target archer for over 15 years before I ever saw one of those videos. Didn't change my mind about shooting a bow, though.

    Pretty amazing compound bows are able to hold together.

    The front end of that Glock looks like my Golden Retriever with her head stuck out of the truck window. Lips flopping..

    Surprised at the amount of frame flex.

    I am not a Glock "fanboy" by any means. I could have a lot of fun with flex exhibited by the frame. however the grip also appears to be moving around in the grip adapters. I know that loose adapters should not cause flex, but could sure account for some of the "limp wristing" effect.

    As long as my G30 fires and cycles every time like it does, I don't care if it leaps over high jumps during cycling.
