Every baby Glock has to have a bowel movement before they will let it come home from the hospital.

Fixed it for ya.

They scrapped the program early last year because it wasn't working. NY seems to have a track record of passing poorly considered laws that don't work.

My previous new gun didn't have the spent cartridges in the case, but by May 2012, they were in the case with my new G17. I asked my dealer, and that was the reason given.

My thoughts were that it was test fired and they put them in to show it passed final inspection.
You are, actually, assuming that those cases came from your gun. Just cuz it's written, on the envelope, don't mean squat.

I shot two more from each gun and had my son the PHD scientific american run them through the lab and they were in fact the correct ones in each envelope.
You must not know him?
























I know you're correct... (it's my assumption - BUT my son is a PHD Scientist. I'll ask him to mass spec them

Well played sir. Your unworthy subject. (I added the e in bowel for you above).

I had never given it any thought, I agree with some previous posts. Reload starter kit.

Agree, best comment of the year!!! I thought it was so funny I didn't even notice the misspelling.

As to non-brass cases...

-I asked Glock, when I was in the test firing ranges and mag reloading rooms down in Smyrna why they choose the rounds they choose and the answer was simply: cost.

edit to add original statement: Every baby Glock has to have a bowel movement before they will let it come home from the hospital.

And there I thought the first guy was being sarcastic.

Yeah spelling has never been my strong suit, but I'm glad my comment got at least a chuckle or two.

Seriously though, Glock's "Inspector 12" puts those in there.
Dont question it, and dont eat the box of Chicklets they send you with your stereo either.

Glock used black powder and round balls, loaded with a ramrod, until they were required to supply 2 fired cases, with each gun. That cut into their profit margin and I reckon steel or aluminum cases are just cheaper than brass.
