Maruquel Cruz (4 days agoLINKED COMMENT)

Hi. Would you explain the difference between this malfunction (a failure to fire) and a squib load? I am a new shooter and after 500 rounds in my new Glock19 I had a malfunction type 1 ( I fixed it fast with the "tap and rack"). But...how do I know the difference between this malfunction and a squib load (catastrophic malfunction)? Thanks, Mara.

KeepingPiece2010 (1 second ago)

Great question! I'm going to include this one in the Colleene Answers Questions series, and it'll also be covered in detail in a future series entitled Gun Malfunction Clearance 201. :) OK, so the difference is that a squib malfunction actually allows the cartridge to fire, but there's insufficient power in the load to carry the bullet out of the barrel. So, the bullet itself becomes lodged in the barrel. If successive rounds were to be fired after it, it could severely injure the shooter and pretty much completely ruin the gun. The sound of a squib is best described as a "thwup" sound. Often times, a little smoke exits around the ejection port. It happens a lot with guys and gals that load their own rounds for competition...and try to make the recoil low by reducing the amount of powder. If you shoot factory loaded ammunition, it'll be a rare occurrence. If you do experience a squib, then you'll need to remove the magazine, lock the slide to the rear, and tap the bullet out with a squib rod from the barrel end. Carefully though so as not to scratch the bore. :)THanks for joining in the discussion and asking a great question!

What's a better exercise I can do to develop the muscle memory to gain better grip on my gun? I carry strong side, IWB in custom kydex. I also carry with a light on my gun. Not sure if that throws the balance off or something. I hope that you can help me."

[06/14/16]   "I stand behind you in line at the store with a smile on my face...and a gun under my shirt and you are none the wiser, yet you are safer for having me next to you. I won't shoot you. My gun won't pull it's own trigger. It is securely holstered with the trigger covered. It can't just go off. However, rest assured that if a lunatic walks into the grocery store and pulls out a rifle, I will draw my pistol and protect myself and my family and therefore protect you and your family. I may get shot before I can pull the trigger...but, I won't die in a helpless blubbering heap on the floor begging for my life or my child's life. No, if I die it will be in a pile of spent shell casings. I won't be that victim. I choose not to be. As for you, I don't ask you to carry a gun. If you are not comfortable, then please don't. But I would like to keep my right to choose to not be a helpless victim. There is evil in the world and if evil has a gun, I want one too..."

2 Year Old Learning Muzzle Safety & Holster Technique (Teaching Kids About Guns Series)

Today, our 2 year old got her first gun. We taught her to draw from the holster, engage multiple targets, keep the muzzle downward away from people, and re-holster when she's finished. She's already learning. You can see her turn toward us in excitement, but has the self control to point the muzzle downward rather than at us. It's a work in progress...but this is the first day!

Do your kids a favor and teach them safe gun handling from the start. It's way harder to UNLEARN bad habits than it is to learn them properly from the beginning.
