Every baby Glock has to have a bowel movement before they will let it come home from the hospital.
Big Brother is watching...
IE, pick up your spent rounds
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.
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
BOO, I'm a retired Rocket Scientist. Sent some folk to the moon. I also had several mass specs.
But, sorry, I don't know your son, you're right about that.
I read your profile and figured you would understand...
I like to think I have a good sense of humor. Some days I feel humbled in the presence of true genius.
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.
I didn't get one or two with my G17 back in Oct 1989.
My Clock 36 came with a casing and I live here in California.
Except Glock uses aluminum.
Where? I didn't even know that I had one.
Yep. The last few purchases I've made had aluminum cases included.
Bought a gen 4 Glock 31 around 3 weeks ago and it came with 2 brass casings. Speer gold dot.
FBI for records
How right you are,Have a safe day.
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.
