Officer Shooting, Glock Malfunction

Skip to 6.50 to get to the relevant part.

Never mind the guy had no weapons in his hands and didn’t “move his hands towards his pants in a furtive manner”..lets not bother with that today..

No, instead notice how the cops Glock had a serious malfunction and stopped dead after one round. I would LOOOOOOOOOVVVVE to tease you glock guys about that. Believe me. But I’m not going to because the glock is not a factory glock. Its one of those pimped out glocks with all he bells and whistles and all the crap a glock doesn’t need.

This is great because it’s something I been saying for years. Take a 500 dollar Glock that works perfectly, spend $5,000 on it getting it all tricked out and gunsmithed on just to make it not as good as it was as a 500 dollar plain factory glock.

Another point is, I would not have re used the same magazine after a malfunction if I had the usual 2 to 3 more loaded mags like most cops carry. The mag may have been the problem as it usually is. Clearing the malfunction just to put the most likely problem back in the gun is not a great idea. Luckily for him he didn’t have to find out. I am not even going to bother with his execution in clearing it..

“Speed Holstering” Or, How to shoot yourself.

That is a close call. Luckily the only damage done was a 50 dollar pair of pants, and some pride and ego.

There is a big thing about holstering your handgun without having to look at it. Or “speed holstering” after shooting. I have no idea why so many people are in such a hurry to get their handgun back into the holster. I can say without doubt the big flashy training videos from a few years ago contributed to this.

Keep your gun out until you are 100 sure the threat is over. Then take your time putting it back in the holster. If you have a jacket on or a shirt or anything that might hang up in it, Look first! Especially if your handgun doesn’t have a manual safety.
