BigAIE has my vote: pure stupidity. Also we already knew there where some issues with G17 Gen4's ... beating on dead horse issues here. The fix is listed on the forum.. It worked wonders for mine..

So you signed up and with your first thread posted a youtube video titled "Glock Myth Laid To Rest: Uberfail Over The Beach Test"???

Looks like the only uberfail is you. The video is retarded, by the way.

who carries their pistol slide locked and no magazine? if you want to torture test it, be reasonable. mag inserted and loaded chamber then pour then pour dirt as much as you want.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: 'We're going to be using Winchester White Box for this, and just to confirm there won't be any question about ammo quality choice.'

:shocked: Great test! On the first five rounds, the shooter (John Q. Strange) took two ejected cases to the left side of his body: One ejected case hit his left shoulder, and another bounced off the left side of his boonie hat! Of the second five rounds: 4 expended cases arced weakly off to the right; while the last casing went left, and just dribbled out of the gun. :freak:

In my time I have seen some real stupidity with guns; but these guys deserve a special award! The Glock certainly didn't perform well; but the shooters are (How can I say this nicely?) ....... BRAIN DEAD! :tinfoil:

Your group is the ones who failed. Anyone who was a sculpted beard (or whatever the term is for the crap that was on the the one guys face) has no credibility.

The comment about water washing off the lubricant was idiotic. Oil is insoluble so dunking the gun will not wash of the lubricant. Seems to me that this video was set up so the pistol would fail.

Seriously, no gun will function properly when subjected to that kind of treatment. Not even HK's!

You only have one chance to make a good first impression and the OP failed miserably at it.

I hope he doesn't ever expect to be taken seriously around here now.

You did not read the comments on his video. He explains how the normal gun safety rules are only for beginners. That true experienced shooters do not need to follow those rules.

What a bunch of tools. (I wonder if any of them were Gecko45).

Last I heard Darwin Awards were only awarded posthumously. Shooting yourself in the foot might get you an honorable mention or something. I could be wrong - haven't checked lately.

Somewhere there is a mall that cant find their ninja's.

It is real smart to torture test a firearm without eyepro.

The test was performed in the sump next to the mall. After the test, the "group" cleaned up and went to the mall food court for lunch (weapons concealed, of course). Their "mission objective" was to decide whether to eat at "My Kitchen" or "Sarku".

A Beretta passed that test??? Really???? I couldn't envision a Beretta locking block set-up surviving that treatment without becoming frozen.

I'm glad that the two guys in the video didn't injure themselves.

Would YOU shoot a gun immediately after clogging the barrel with dirt, and then merely shaking it a few times before loading? I sure as hell wouldn't! The fact that the gun didn't Kb during the test is a testament to Glock durability.

The failures-to-fire were interesting. Did the gun already have a firing pin channel impacted with debris before the test started?

Who loads a Glock (or any other semi-auto) by holding it by the slide in their reaction hand and slamming in a magazine with their primary hand? Even "wounded shooter" drills don't use this technique! Video has exactly zero cred with me.

To VS,

I did watch all your videos and I would like to give some constructive criticism only. I recognize you are doing testing that others wouldn't do, and for some good reasons, but I will not slam you for it, just some input to hopefully help you with any future testing:

1. While I respect what you are attempting to accomplish - Safety always first. Hearing protection, eye protection, and always ensure the barrel is clear before shooting. There were many things in your testing that could have occluded a barrel. I never want to see anyone hurt or even unsafe with a gun.

2. Testing needs to be more scientific and more consistent from gun to gun. One such example - as you washed the dirt from the guns to see how they fired wet, some of you washed much more, even ran the slides to help remove debris. You need to do exactly the same for each gun for the results to better compare. (And check barrel before shooting!)

3. Also, the underwater test should be left out. If you choose to do this on your own, don't openly provide the video with your testing. Underwater testing is not helpful what so ever and is merely dangerous (glad no one was hurt).

Again, I understand what you are trying to accomplish but feel performing your testing more safely, more scientifically, and more professionally will earn you more satisfied viewers while providing better and more useful information.

Best of Luck.

Safety is for beginners, with the training those guys have obviously done, there is no need for small details. Keep your suggestions cor the weekend warriors. Vigilant Spectre lives above the kid rules.
