1911 Kaboom

Some pics. It’s weird because I read on the internet that only Glocks do that.

    Reloads are just as good, and even better than factory loads, at least that is what they always tell you.
    Also, this was a malfunction that caused the pistol to become a machine gun with poor timing. The ATF will throw you in jail for that.

    I’m not going to jump to any conclusions about 1911 kaBOOMs and Glenn Reynolds shooting a Glock Match.

    Really I’m not…

    Im just impressed the shooter admitted that something must have gone wrong in the handloading dept. Everytime you see a kaboom its followed by ten paragraphs of nonsense before the shooter aclowledges he/she/it was shooting handloads. This guy cut write to the chase and then Sherlock Holmes it until he deduced what probably happened. Honesty is a hard thing to come by these days…he should run for President.

    It was the SERPA holster that caused this negligent discharge…. wait, wrong narrative…..

  5. ExtremeTolerance Says:

    If it goes Kaboom is must be a Glock. Think I read that in a newspaper…

  6. That Guy Says:

    Of the Kabooms I have seen/ heard of, it comes to something like 98% of them have to do with reloads/ suspect ammo.

    Tell me again how much money reloading saves when you run the risk of scattering parts of your gun across the landscape?

    If I’m the guy I’d check my primer seating depth. Slamfire out of battery I can see from just a long firing pin, but that shouldn’t by itself set off the next round in the magazine. Unless it too had a primer sticking out and got blown back in the magazine.

    Which I why ditch any ammo I have left in the trunk of the car over a Chicago year.

    Dear people taking pictures of guns: there’s a setting on your camera called “macro mode”, please use it.

    There’s clearly a misunderstanding here. The 1911 didn’t have a kB. The almost certainly overcharged handload had a kB, and it happened to be in a 1911 chamber when it happened.

  11. SPQR Says:

    Speakertweaker, actually there are signs in the post that it was an out of battery detonation perhaps caused by debris on the firing pin.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
