I've once had a Browning BL-22 explode before after loading the bullet in the wrong way.

How to use a glock:

not trying to disagree or try to argue that the glock is godd or summin but if it explodes why do so many armed personel use it?
User avatar #7 to #6 - charagrin (12/13/2012) [-]
They used to explode, especially the first gen .40SW's which were actually modified 9mm pistols. Nothing beats the guaranteed reliability of the M1911. Glocks have been around for 30+ years. 1911's Have been around for over 100.
User avatar #8 to #7 - ketchupshinobi (12/13/2012) [-]
A 1911 CAN be nice, reliable and accurate...if you have a grand to drop and the time to look after it. Lots of people just don't have the money or time for that or would just rather spend it on the range. You know, actually shooting the gun they bought?
User avatar #12 to #8 - charagrin (12/13/2012) [-]
Of course, what do I know? I am just a professional gunsmith who works for a major retailer in New England, and regularly works on law enforcement and private security company weapon platforms.
User avatar #11 to #8 - charagrin (12/13/2012) [-]
What? That is the statement of someone who obviously doesn't know anything about firearms. A mil-spec 1911 runs you 400 bucks and is every bit as reliable and accurate as a Glock. You CAN pay more for a high end 1911, just like you can for a Glock. Try and get your info from a real source, and not Call Of Duty. And if you don't believe me, why don't you try asking on every firearm forum ever made, or go to any gun store or gun club.

My bad, I didn't know we were using websites without proper sources or credentials to decide whether a gun was bad or not. What about this?

"He’s a founding member of the International Defensive Pistol Association and also a member of the American Pistolsmiths Guild."
That's also Army Times that has been in circulation since 1940 and deserves no such disrespect.
My initial information came from a friend of mine who was always complaining about his needy 1911, and maybe I spoke up too quickly, but a quick search shows that many share this opinion.
User avatar #18 to #16 - charagrin (12/13/2012) [-]
The Glock versus 1911 argument is just like the AK versus AR argument from way back. Same results. Both have their uses, the 1911 and the Ak are crushingly reliable, popular, andpowerful. The Glock and AR are less powerful(except the .45 and 7.62 respectively), less reliable, and less integrated. In time they will be.
User avatar #17 to #16 - charagrin (12/13/2012) [-]
Many do, and many say that Glock's suck as well. The only thing that is different between the Glock and the 1911 is the standard 1911 is more reliable, and the design has over 100 years of use. Trying to say ti sucks is like trying to say that penicillin sucks. They have been around so long because they work, and work well. SOme people have had bad 1911's. But many more people have had bad Glocks. Especially the early models which were prone to major failure. Like I said before, they are not a bad gun and one day they may be as exposed as the 1911. But right now, they aren't. It's just a fact. In 50 years the Glock will be 80 years old and maybe it will have proven itself. But the 1911 will be 150, and still king. Assuming we don't have lasers anyway, lol.
User avatar #19 to #17 - ketchupshinobi (12/13/2012) [-]
ugh exhaustive conversation. I never said the 1911 sucked. I said it was quite a bit more expensive and needed much more attention. Also, didn't the glocks in .40 S&W only explode because their frames weren't made for the increased pressure? Because of that, I was always warned against buying a pistol in anything other than its original caliber.
User avatar #20 to #19 - charagrin (12/13/2012) [-]
Yes they were, I said that. And 1911's DONT need extra attention, the Glock does, and even it doesn't need very much. The 1911 is designed to go without care for long periods of time. The average modern 1911 made of good parts middle class, say 600 dollars or so, has a maximum expected lifetime of 600,000 rounds with basic maintenance and replacing minor parts. The average Glock has a service life of 200,000 rounds with basic maintenance and replacing minor parts. In addition the Glock has a break in period. 1911's are made slightly loose from the get go. Some may, but most don't. rally is is apples to oranges. The 1911 wins, but only by a little bit, plus its incredible history. The Glock only wins in capacity.

Reminds me of what my friend told me. One of his family members(forgot which one) found an M1911 while diving. Had markings from the fingerprints of the previous user basically engraved from being underwater for so long. Still fires

The fact is the 1911 has over 100 years of use, in every theater, of every country, in the WORLD. Without modifications. You CAN get mods for them, just like you CAN get mods for pretty much any other popular gun ever made. AR-15, AK, Glock, M28, M-14, 870, the list goes on. None need customization, they just all CAN be customized. a 400 dollar 1911 works just as well as a 600 dollar Glock. the difference is the 1911 has history to back up it's reputation. The Glock is a baby. Maybe one day it will be as acknowledged as the 1911. But right now, it isn't.

I prefer to carry a colt m1911 .45.
-Very powerful. Kill in one shot, two if he's hard to kill.
-moderately light, light enough to carry without feeling much weight, heavy enough to counter a good portion of the recoil.
-A classic great American design. Used by the U.S. military for over 70 years.

1. full frame steel colt 1911's are some of the heaviest semi-automatic pistols ever.
2. You could shoot someone in the chest 5 times and they still might not die.( It's all about placement).

What the **** did you just ******* say about me, you little bitch?

I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the **** out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my ******* words. You think you can get away with saying that **** to me over the Internet? Think again, ****** . As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re ******* dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little **** . If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your ******* tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will **** fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re ******* dead, kiddo.

For it's size, it's medsized, it's not above average weight. The slight heaviness to it improves accuracy. And yes 1 shot is very likely to kill. Even bring down most targets if it's not a lethal shot. With a .45, you only have to hit close ot an organ to likely take it out.

The 9mm in the other hand, it can take an average of 2-3 shots to kill. 1 if you hit a vital organ. You have to directly hit an organ to kill in one shot usually. Sure it's lighter and carries more bullets and it's not bad for the advantages that brings. Back in the day, the U.S. armed forces preferred side-arm that was slightly heavier, less bullets, but an almost guaranteed one shot kill. Now a-days the U.S. armed forces prefers a lighter, higher ammo capacity, weaker side arm. Not too bad, but I still prefer more the latter.

For those of you who swear by a .22? You have to be kidding me. You can shoot a guy in the chest, even in the lungs multiple times (if it even penetrates that far, especially if it's a .22short, and he'll still be in the fight for a litle while. Never trust a .22 for personal defense. .22mag is iffy even with hollow points.

TL;DR? .45 is best choice. 9mm is ok choice. Anything smaller can get you killed in personal defense.

There's a joke that Glocks tend to explode because if I remember correctly, the 1st Gen Glocks chambered in .40 S&W had a tendency to fail catastrophically when firing steel jacketed ammo.

10 mm hits almost twice as hard as a .45. and already have a 1911.
#51 to #46 - whaawhaa (12/14/2012) [-]
I am aware of this, but with a faster round comes more penetration. Which the worst possible scenario is to have to use your weapon and hit your attacker only to over penetrate and strike someone else. You then go from self defense and off the hook to manslaughter and jail time. The .45 hollow-point is the perfect amount of stopping power and penetration distance. Plus depending on where you are its hard to find 10mm rounds sometimes. However it comes down to your personal preference and I am by no means trying to force you any way, just stating my opinion.
#54 to #51 - chrsbrrss (12/14/2012) [-]
Lol nice pic. But im probably going to load my own rounds for practice and plinking. Not for carry tho, that gets all legalistic and dumb. Maybe a hollow point frangible would not penetrate. it would also **** someone right up releasing all that energy into them.

I have no idea what everyone this talking about, but a 10 mm glock is a great buy. The thing you have to worry about is that the ammo can be a little pricey. In the states at least, it isn't very popular, so supply isn't that great. 10 mm is a very fast round, so you'll have better accuracy then a slower round. As for glock, it's a very well designed weapon. The people here don't like it for some reason, but I've never had problems. with it.
#47 to #38 - chrsbrrss (12/14/2012) [-]
Yeah i have a 9mm glock never had an issue once. and a 10mm hits harder than most everything other than a 44 and those huge pistol rounds. And that glock 20 is 550. A great value in my opinion.
User avatar #39 to #10 - commontroll (12/14/2012) [-]
I don't really like Glocks, mainly due to them just being so light that the recoil is a hassle compared to other handguns. The other issue is that if anything goes wrong (any "high tech" gun will have things go wrong fairly often) then you have to ship it off to Europe and wait for their gunsmiths to repair it. I'd rather just have a .45 revolver of some kind. No jams, way more badass, and much more reliable with less recoil due to the weight.
#49 to #39 - chrsbrrss (12/14/2012) [-]
But the weight is a win lose situation. When you carry a gun you feel the weight pulling on you all day. When you fire a gun in the heat of the moment you dont even feel the recoil or have an issue managing it (if you are proficient, which you should be if you're carrying a gun) And I dont know about shipping guns back for repair. I either fix em or they just dont break. Im not sure how ****** a gun you have to buy to have it break to the point of RMA, but its not happened to me and i have quite a variety of guns.
User avatar #50 to #49 - commontroll (12/14/2012) [-]
So what about the issue of jams? The weight is understandable, though I still disagree on that matter. And if you have to fire multiple shots in a row, it's nice to have a bit more accuracy and less recoil when you're shooting.
User avatar #30 to #10 - heartlessrobot ONLINE (12/14/2012) [-]
