    Wowwie!!!

    Saw a youtube vid some years ago,
    by a "trained professional" on the proper way to take apart a Glock...

    HE PUT THE MUZZLE of the gun in his palm, then dry fired it to release the striker!!

    I was shocked that anyone would do that...
    I seems that,,, "anyone",, would do That,,, but it didnt dry fire.
    Must not have been a "trained professional"!!!

    That's going to leave a mark.

    Is a Glock 40 a 20mm?

    I bet a little lotion isn't going to do the trick, that's for sure.

    A twenty mm pistol would have quite a bit of recoil.

They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands.

    Lee Paige again, I assume?

    Edit: You're all mistaken. It's pronounced "Glawk fowty", and nobody actually knows what caliber it is – it's kind of a trial-and-error thing.

    I know a guy who shot his little finger off field striping a Glock.

    He forgot the main points in the process make sure it is unloaded then POINT IT IS A SAFE DIRECTION before pulling the trigger.


    I sure what happen was he dropped the mag tried to disassembly the realized dam I have to pull the trigger and had his hand in front for the barrel as he was pushing down on the take down latches.


    Stupid is as stupid does.


    That had to hurt.

    Don't blame the Glocks. Waaaay back in the Time of Dinosaurs, when I was still on AD, our Military Police and our officers were armed with 1911s. I do not know how many died or were seriously injured because of some idiot improperly clearing a weapon.

    Proper procedure:
    1. Drop magazine.
    2. Rack slide and lock back.
    3. Check for empty chamber, visually and with little finger.
    3A. Remove little finger.
    4. Release slide.
    5. Pull trigger to drop hammer.

    Idiot procedure:
    1. Rack slide and release.
    2. Drop magazine.
    3. Pull trigger......BANG!!!

    And, yes, our officers were just as prone to that sort of asshattery. I had to chew one young captain's rear end for pointing his non-issue 1911 at one of my soldiers. He went to the Battalion Commander. The BC called me in and asked me for my side of the story. When I got through, the Command Sergeant Major and I got to listen to a colonel deliver a masterful, if somewhat profane, description of the captain and his ancestry for several generations. He was out of the battalion shortly thereafter.

    I don't stick my appendages in places that have sharp corners, that could hurt. That is why God created pen lights, or bore lights. Not to be confused with a boring dimwit.

    With a 1911 (or, for that matter, an XD), if one locks the slide back, one can simply point the barrel at a light source, and look, from behind the slide, down the barrel through the gap between the slide and frame. This is my preferred way of checking the bore.

    If your gun does not lock the slide back, mark a pencil for that specific gun. The pencil can then be put in the barrel for depth. If pencil will not reach it's mark, it is loaded. To be sure pull slide back slightly and the eraser of the pencil will be visible if gun is unloaded.

    Usually that is the method to tell if a muzzle loader is loaded. By inserting the ram rod and checking depth.

    You're right. I did have some second lieutenants who were dense enough to have left their finger in as the slide slammed shut!

    @Marshaul: I was trained to both look and to check with my little finger. Redundant perhaps, but, knock on wood, I've never had a ND while clearing one of my pistols.

    My check is an equivalent level of redundancy to the pinkie method, because it assumes that the operator first performs a normal inspection of the chamber through the ejection port.

    Actually, it's better. The pinkie test wouldn't have saved Brandon Lee's life, but my check would have.

    It's different from the normal chamber inspection because you're looking down the bore, and if you can see the light source illuminating the rifling, you can be absolutely certain that the bore and the chamber are clear. Neither the pinkie check nor inspecting the chamber through the ejection port can accomplish this.

    Doesn't work with all pistols, though.

    Crappy photos to demonstrate:






    This 1911 is clear.

    I don't check the chamber visually or phisically, I just rack the slide stick my pinky in muzzle and dry fire...
