    Thanks for posting these. Now I worry. :) I am shooting with a stock barrel, not an aftermarket barrel, which means less case support.

    I had a kaboom with an all metal pistol. Steel slide aluminum alloy receiver.
    Although the weapon did partially disassemble itself in my hand (Mag popped out, one grip panel blown off), it was no biggie.
    I've had harder impacts on my hand from swatting flies on window panes.

    The gun was back up and running in about three minutes.

    I saved the case for years. In fact I just threw it out yesterday after finding it in my sock drawer where it had been for at least 10 years.

    It was a 9 mm, and a large-scale commercial reload from somebody like Atlanta Arms or Georgia Arms and Ammo.
    The case blue open just forward of the extractor groove .
    The hole was about 4mm wide.

    No glocks for me. No plastic guns. I prefer metal ones. No Kabooms.
