    This might not be the right place to ask this question, but what do I know about doing things the right way.

    I went shooting today and had my first ever jam with my Glock. The casing had not completely been ejected and this is what it looked like. The bullet was still in the barrel and fell out into my hand. Has anyone ever had this happen? What would cause this? The primer has not been hit? I shot another 60 rds through the gun after this and didnt have another problem. I probably have 700 plus rounds through this gun so far and this is my first problem ever. BTW this is Winchester white box 115g.

    Looks like an improperly seated projectile that fell out while it was loading.

    Winchester White box? There's your problem. I thought I had problems with several of my guns until I stopped using that crap. All the problems disappeared.

    I would wager the bullet was not properly crimped by Winchester. The casing probably got dented up as it was being racked forward by the slide and the bullet became dislodged, causing the casing to feed improperly and get pinched as the slide was coming home. The force of the slide slamming it home dislodged the bullet the rest of the way and dumped the powder down the barrel. Primer wouldn't be indented because you never pulled the trigger on that round; it jammed prior to feeding into the chamber.

    Thanks fellas. I was hoping it was just a bad round. I am glad I looked into the chamber before shooting again. Even if it wasnt lodged in tightly I am sure it would have sucked to shoot the next round into it.
    :huh

    I decided to go to the range about 4 this afternoon and it was great. Zero wind, some old box targets were still up to shoot at, and no old guy bugging me to see my membership card. I shot a few hundred rounds just practicing my grip and trigger control. I am really loving this gun!

    I just picked up a gently used third gen G19 for $250, should get it tomorrow or Thursday. First 9mm, since I'm a 1911 guy. I'm debating taking it to the IDPA match I'm shooting in this weekend.
    Too bad it's winter- riding the 990 to a pistol match sounds like a good combination!

    I had one for a few weeks. I guess I'm nostalgic or something. It just felt to me like it should have a cord connected to some kind of game or something. The trigger thingy kind of bugged me really. Not sure why. I guess when my finger is in the guard I'm already sure I wan't it to fire.aond pulling a trigger on a trigger just feals strange.

    If a compensated one comes your way try it out.

    It's going to change a lot of things.

    You'll love how it shoots, hate how it looks and loath how it feels since you are a 1911 man....
