Squibs/hangfires FYI


Recommended Posts

   Any one who carries should practice how to handle malfunctions . I will mix dummy rounds in magazines & make low powered loads to cause stove pipe FTE ,just to keep my wife & myself, handy as one can be with failures. It really pisses her off when I do that , cause she never knows when I will do it , if at all .

   Maybe that's why she likes her revolvers  <dontknow>

For when you just don't care....

My buddy bought a replica .41 cal black powder pistol when we were 18. He loaded a light round and got the ball stuck in the barrel. What do a pair of 18 year olds do when they can't pound the squib out with a stick?

Use a blow torch on that SOB, until the lead pours out the end!!

It never looked the same again, but it fired.
