    hi there,
    definetely that hurts, that whats called a double load, it could have been a 9mm or 40 cal., the gun , a compact version for sure. thats what you get for not reading the manual, never use RELOADS on a glock or any polygonal rifling handgun.
    funny but i too used reload on both of my glock, a G17 mariner and G21 that i converted to full-auto, i just made sure the gun(s) are very clean, used LIQUID-MOLY gun oil and used reload coming from a reliable reloader.

    polygonal barrel/lead bullets

    hi there babj615,
    according to some firearms manufacturers using polygonal barrels, never use lead bullets during firing sessions because (glocks) not only do they impart spin but also compress the bullet to the form of the barrel. thats why such barrels have much higher velocity than ordinary one. also lead fouling occurs much offen and once not checked or cleaned properly may cause dangerous chamber pressure that may blow the barrel at the shooter. thats why glock recommends using factory full metal jacket/hollow point ammo on all its guns.
    as for me using reloads ( lead bullets) on my glocks, well, i make it sure that its really clean as in REALLY CLEAN before i start firing away. like i said i leave in a country were bullets are a premium. ther way to go here is use lead reload bullets for firing at the range and original bullets for carry. unlike there in the states were you can return your gun whenever you feel like it, here it different. also thats one reason i sold all my glocks and got a steyr instead :lol:, no more worrying that one day my luck finally runs out hehehe
    hope this answers you question, takecare and ahoot straight

    So reloads would be OK, so long as they are FMJ?

    and, what do you mean by "in the states you can return your gun whenever you like..."????

    Thank You!

    there in the states

    hi there babj615,
    you were asking what "there in the states" means, well, your gun laws are quite different from ours here in the philippines. there are a lot of laws regarding firearms , let me give you an example, for one thing, if by chance you get a really shitty firearms, here, you just can't ask for a replacement (new), the dealer has to check and recheck everything regarding your complaint. only repairs will do, no new gun and if you started to have a really bad day and plan on sueing, unlike there you can in the u.s.a 0 sue all you want, here, try threathening , it might just work, sueing doesnt work, our legal system is really slow as in REALLY SLOWWWWWWW, for short, we have to make the most of what we have.............sounds confusing, well thats life my friend
    hope this answers your questiion. takecare and shoot straight

    One for the CCW! Yeah Baby. Also watch the woman holding the baby. She doesn't do anything till the staff tells her to come behind the counter. She hasn't the fight or flight skills.

    See Ya,

    Nothing. I've put 1000's of reloads down the barrel of my G23 with no problems. A double charge or squib can cause the above video.
