I'm bummed. My wife's PM9 blew up today. She's okay, so that's good. Scared her good. Side panel blew out like it should so it just bruised and cut her hand.
Gun is toast:
We were shooting my reloads so I guess I am out a gun. But I've reloaded over 10K rounds and never had a problem before.
The pictures aren't all that great, but maybe you can see the bottom half of the back of the shell is blown out. Barrel is not damaged. Is that how a hot load looks when it blows out? It almost looks like it fired when it was not all the way back into battery.
