    So, I was out and about running my errands on Sunday prior to go shooting out at my Dad's property. I had forgotten my spare magazine holder, so, was carrying one of the ones that I keep in my glove box stuck into my back pocket. I'm at a gas station, paying for a soda and some gasoline, when I go to reach for my wallet. As I'm pulling my wallet out it catchs on the baseplate of the magazine, and dumps it on the floor...

    Here's the best part...

    I was carrying a packed full to the bursting Glock 17 magazine with +2 extension on it. The magazine hits basepad first and through some miracle of bad luck pops the base plate off. 19 147g HST's all come shooting out the bottom of the magazine, and proceed to bounce and roll all over the floor.

    This reminds me of the bad dreams I use to have when I was in highschool about forgetting to put clothes on before coming to school, or something like.

    The clerk thought it was pretty funny, seeing as he has a CCW himself (We've talked about it before). He was actually laughing so hard he started crying. The other people in the gas station however didn't look as amused, though thankfully the clerk said something like "Hey it's fine, I've known John a long time." as I'm busy picking cartridges up off the ground.

    So, this now officially becomes my most embarassing moment, stealing the top spot from the time I farted next to Katy Hostick while doing the Situp test in 3rd grade gym.

    Speaking of Ohio CCW...

    P-Chan, are you going to that CCW class you posted up about a few weeks ago? I've got me and a buddy signed up for it.

    Pretty sure if you want to blame something, blame the mag extension. STFU and come back when you have a little better handle on what's going on in the big boy room, mmm kay? :wavey:

    thread lawlz.

    I'm thinking he was running some sort of bootleg +2 plates or something. I used to shoot indoor competitions quite a bit with my Glock and would drop mags all the place over the concrete floor and never had anything like that happen.

    Just don't drop your magazine with shitty extension onto the floor and you should be alright.

    That happens fairly often actually, and I've seen it in all types of guns. It will most commonly occur when dropping a fairly full magazine either prematurely or to speed reload and the mag lands square on the basepad.

    If it drops straight up and down, the weight of the bullets from a fully or almost full mag will be enough to push back on the mag spring from the force of being dropped and cause the top loading bullet to do a flip in the mag from the temporary relief of spring tension.

    I dry fire practice with dummy rounds full in my magazines, and it will do that a few times a session actually. (BTW, do not dry fire with a loaded mag (of dummy rounds of course) without any shoes. Your Toes will hate you.)

    What's worst is when you don't realize it and try to shove it back in the gun, charge it and try to get it back up and running.
