    Oh No, not another so called "torture" test?:animlol:

    It only proves that that particular G21 worked under those conditions at
    that time, nothing more. Your results with your G21 might vary.

    90% of the "tests" these people conduct are totally irrelevant and have
    absolutely no bearing on the reliability or functionality of a firearm.

    If you want to test a firearm, start shooting it.
    Long, hard and fast!

    Burying it in dirt means nothing, as whatever buried the gun would have
    also buried it's operator. So what use is his firearm to him now?

    If he didn't have it with him when it got buried,
    then what use is it to him two years later?

    They call that torture, when I'm not using my glock I store it in a bag a sand wetted down with bleach. :rofl:

    It was kinda weird that right before the first guy shoots the video cuts out and comes back to him. Maybe to switch out for a Glock that wasn't buried?? Fake maybe? I'm not saying it couldn't be done but it just made me wonder.

    Wow! Who peed in your Cornflakes?

    My question is where do you find that many people outside the military or LE wearing load bearing vests? Oh yea, the militia. (ROTFLMAO)

    All these torture tests are waste of a good gun if you ask me - blasphemy!!!
    If i ever buried a gun it would be covered in a half pound of grease, sealed in a zip lock bag and then inside some sturdy non-metallic container. then the ground around it for 100 yards seeded with 5 pounds of brake rotor shavings to fool medal detectors.

    If i had to bury it somewhere not my property, first i'd bury a box with $50 inside it. Then come back in 6 months and check. If the money was still there, THEN i'd bury the gun.

    I thought the best part was when the dog came and got a drink while cleaning the mud off of it. And how many times did that one guy get the muzzle pointed at him. This video made me feel pretty good!!!

    I would have liked to see a loaded gun be dug up and fired immediately, no rinse or strip.

    I'm not impressed. The G21 I used to have never worked right even after spending several months at the factory.

    Wow...that's awesome. Take a perfectly good gun, subject it to conditions that have no bearing whatsoever on real life, and destroy it in the process.

    I understand it still fired. That's wonderful. The barrel had corrosion on the inside. No one is going to tell me that that isn't going to at least influence the weapon's accuracy. Though given the way these 'tards dress and carry themselves, I have to imagine they're as good a shot as any other mall ninja, so I guess it's a moot point.

    I am almost certain the guy in the video is a member here. He posted about this torture test here also. He dropped it from a plane and everything.

    Isn't this the same Glock from the 'BigBore' torture test?

    If so, cool!

    One of the guys almost tortures himself by taking a chunk out of his thumb (twice) :wow:. At least half of the shooters looked very much like amateurs. Best of the bunch might have been the woman in the blue coat. She did a very quick tap and rack to clear a jam.
