    I was setting up at the range today when two guys caught my attention trying to clear a jam in a G36. The round had truly jammed attempting to move into battery. The round was partially in the barrell before it jammed.

    We were finally able to clear the jam and low and behold they were shooting lead round reloads. A few minutes later they called me over and asked if I knew how to break down a Glock (the meant field strip). I field stripped the G36, looked into the barrell and found that none of the rifling was visible - they were all filled with lead! I could not believe that 1) he was shooting lead in the Glock factory barrell and 2) wasn't cleaning it with a lead solvent. On top of it all, this was the guy's carry gun. :faint:

    That is truely amazing...thats what scares me and my shooting bro the most about ranges, what you would think would be common knowledge in regards to weapon safety and care, is not the norm but the exception...I may be somewhat new to guns compared to some peeps, but I feel very confident that I practice good gun safety and also treat my glock with respect...it gets cleaned after every shooting, which is 2-3 times per week, because I take good care of it the damn thing has 2500 rounds through it since new on Dec 10 and it still looks and works like brand new....those idiots should be slapped right away

    I just put around 150 rounds without a hiccup a couple hours ago through my 36. I love shooting this thing. :)

    I hope you didn't just roll your eyes at the fellow and leave him to his own devices.

    You gave him some good knowledge right? Let him know what he needed to know right?

    A Glock 36 failing to return to battery? Blasphemy! :rofl:

    Its unfortunate that they are not obviously aware of the dangers of shooting lead bullets in the firearm he is trusting to save his life or others. Even more rediculous is that he cannot field strip his own weapon.

    I imagine he is the type of guy that in a situation where his life is threatened, when his weapon goes click instead of bang, he simply hides and defecates.

    I don't care what weapon you have, you should know how to take it down. That's the first thing I did when handling a new XDm, along with figuring out that the guide rod isn't captured :p

    Sure did. I spent about 15 minutes of range time with him teaching about the Glock. Then I went about my planned practice of double taps and off hand shooting with my G22.

    Good on you. I just hope what you taught him sticks. For his sake and his families!

    I'm amazed at the things people who carry guns do or don't do.
    I have a friend who carries a gun (XDM) and he's never even fired round one through it.
    He does't know how to take it apart yet either despite my willingness to help him.
    Your story is scarey to me. I hate to think of people walking around and shooting guns at a range like this.

    Worked at a full service (gunsmithing too) retail shop for 6 years and I cold fill pages with examples of stupidity. Mostly it was people detail stripping guns and not getting them back together or loosing parts or worse trying to make them better. We charged 37.50/hour-mid '80s-mid '90s but had a sign minimum 50$ if gun was brought in as a basket case . We charged 37.50$ to clean a gun and people paid it!!!:faint: A guy waited for months when Colt first came out with stainless Gold Cups, I think he got it on a friday, brought it back monday, he had put the slide in a vise, on the advise of a not too smart friend, to tighten the slide/frame fit. He broke the right rear corner off the slide, about the size of a dime, took another few months to get it back. We were an authorized Colt warranty station at the time, but they wanted it back to fit because it was a Gold Cup, had it been a regular MKIV we could have fit the slide. I think the gun was a little over 1100$ and they soaked him 500+ for the slide, and of course my boss tacked on a little more. As Jed Clampet would say, pitiful, just pitiful. Also saw a lot of duck hunters with bannapeeled barrels who shot them plugged with mud-a dozen at least while I worked there.
    At least you tried to educate them, some people won't listen, but since you knew how to strip it you gained their trust. Kawasaki KLR 650 dual sport motorcycles have a part commonly called a doohickey (balance chain tensioner to Kawi), believe it or not, and they break, to varying degrees, and if they really let go your engine is toast. I cannot believe how many people say it is an internet myth, most I see personally declare this when I ask them, and it has been a problem since 1986 when the bikes came out, mine was bad, lucky I fixed it when I did. :wow:
