    I know repeatedly loading the same round from the magazine can cause a deeper bullet seat and potential KB down the road if done to often. Is there any danger in over pressure with just moving the slide far enough out of battery to verify a round chambered?

    Still new to this whole carrying thing and I find myself checking that a round is chambered before leaving the house. Even though I never unload the gun.

    it doesnt have enough force to do any type of set-back when you're doing a press check.

    plus you should only be pulling the slide out enough that it's technically not even exiting fully

    Most guns/rounds aren't blessed with proper magbox/throat geometry from the get go to allow a bullet to kiss lands, so no.

    I think the compression happens when it hits the feed ramp rather than the lands. Your'e right though, I have never found a handgun that it will kiss the lands even remotely close to the spec'd OAL.

    stop checking to see if it's loaded. i used to do this when i was new to carrying. either stop being OCD or get a gun like an XD that has a physical marker when the round is chambered

    Don't worry about it. I've chambered single rounds of HST from a mag over 50 times in my Glock 19 and saw no difference in the COAL when I used my calipers. It may be different for other firearms and calibers.

    Simple. Defensive guns are always loaded, no need to check. All guns are threat as if they are loaded even when I know it's not.

    To answer your question most pistol ammo is very difficult to get "set back" enough that it's dangerous. Most factory ammo is loaded fairly light and you would have to have the bullet set back very deep to get dangerous pressures. Mostly it's people that reload their own ammo that have to worry. Your using range brass, sometimes going light on the crimp, and playing with compressed loads and slow burning powders.

    Anyone care to clear up my knowledge of kissing the lands on loading? My understanding is that the bullet is just touching the rifling, way to tell is drop it in the chamber and it won't spin freely?

    I have a g27 and I thought it had an indicator, either it doesn't or i'm blind.

    I was mainly worried because it's .40 cal and the glock not having the supported chamber. I'll stop being a worry wart.

    I tend to have certain guns that are always loaded and certain ones that are seldom so if I'm carrying a diff one for a while or if I've recently been to the range I'll take a peep to make sure it is. I put a light crimp on anything i'd be shooting in a situation like that anyway and it appears to be pretty hard to make a .45 go way overpressure anyway according to Ken Waters' numbers :) Probably easier in a longer barrel of course...

    Flush with an empty chamber, sticks out when one in the pipe.

    The .40 kb thing is way overblown. Its pretty rare, its just that theres a shitton of glocks out there so you're gonna hear about it more with them.
