How often does this really happen? I was thinking about getting a heavier caliber than 9mm to run in pistol competitions. If it is a problem, then what other gun should I use?

I don't have much experience with steel targets. Would a bigger caliber make much of a difference?

I'm sure some shooters with experience in steel targets will chime in. I don't think it would make much of a difference if it was just steel target.

I suppose it would depend on how heavy the steel target is. I have seen some pretty beefy targets where I would want a little more than 9mm to knock it down.

A Glock kaboom is as rare as hen's teeth. They have partially unsupported chambers, so over-pressure situations can be catastophic to the pistols. ALL PISTOLS will kaboom at certain pressures, but Glocks have been shown to do it easier than some others.

Don't use reloads, which have a higher chance of improper powder content and weak case walls, and you'll be just fine with a Glock.

Someone please link the video of the Navy SEAL and the SIG P226 (in 9mm of course).

Of course, the .45ACP has a perfect trackrecord of instant kill with a single shot. Yeah, even if you shoot them in the leg, the .45ACP is so powerful that it will send you flying.

Professionals trust shot placement over caliber.

Glock has more pistols in civy and LEO hands than any other pistol manufactuer today. With the fact that any pistol can KB, which one do you think your hear about first? The Glock simply because there is a larger chance due to HOW MANY are out there.

You hear about Glock KB's simply because there are more out there for it to happen too. Not because they are poor firearms. Most of the KB's that you do read about are due to user error, not gun malfunction. Again I say MOST, not all. Glock states in there manual to not use reloadsand to not use lead bullets. Those who do are the first to complain of a KB.

Glocks work well, and seem to function under some of the harshest conditions. My pistol line consists of a G26 for CCW, G30 for winter CCW, and a G34 for fun stuff. All are gen 3 and all function 100%.....

Oh, and ignore the TROLLS!!!


Edited to add ... Here is a post that proves my point about USER ERROR, not gun malfunction.

Glock clearly states DO not use reloads and DO not shoot lead bullets. Its really not hard to understand. But if you read the fourth reply in this post youll see why KB's do indeed happen. then people try to blame the gun and not there stupidity. www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=455473

When I get the coin again, I want to get a KKM bbl for each of the Glocks just to shoot cheaper lead reloads.

Trolls??? You are without a doubt the epitome of the term TROLL.

MT-Gun-Nut asked a question. Unless you have something helpful to ad, please go make another jug of HKool-aid.

Kabooms happen with all pistols due to over-pressurized ammo. Avoid shit ammo, and it is not an issue. Whether you go and pay $450 for a Glock or $950 for an HK, if you turn around and buy reloads from God only knows who because they are cheap, Then you are a fool.

Thanks. I was hoping that it wasn't just me who found his attitude poor, to say the least.

And he thinks that post counts and join dates mean everything? Oookay there... Even I've heard of sgtar15 or whatever his name was.

ETA: By the way, I have also pointed out what you did in your edit, in bright red, bold, size 5. It seems that accepting that is hard for some. Reading the manual helps. Heeding the warnings of manufacturers helps even more.

I shoot a G22......a lot......and have had no issues.
As other here will surely profess, YMMV.
Personally, I have no fear shooting a 'fo-tee'...and no, Im not even a professional...just a regular shooter with about 5000 rounds of fo-tee downrange from a Glock.....and yes, I still have all ten fingers. A bone stock Glock will get pretty tight groups....a trigger job will get one shooting point of aim with no problems. After I cleaned up the trigger on my G22 the gun is now more accurate than I am...and I cant endorse it enough.
