    I read threads about guns blowing up (kb?), what causes this, is it a design defect in a particular model, is it crappy or overly powerful ammo, or is it improper maintenance?

    I like guns and shooting but am kinda new and the thought of dying at the range because my gun blew up in my face kinda scares me... :noes:

    The odds of you having a kaboom will decrease significantly, if you use "quality" ammo.

    Each time a round is fired, there is a chance of a kaboom. It's an explosive. It's how it works. :dunno:

    i wouldn't worry about any factory made ammo. gotta worry about the cheap gunshow reloads that Bubba made in his woodshed.

    I would bet that glocks blow up the most as their chamber isnt fully supported.

    Mainly caused by an overpressure situation, most likely a double powder charge in the case. Case separations can destroy guns too.

    Although it is possible to have a kB with factory made ammo the chances are very slim when compared to the liklihood of it happening shooting someone elses reloads.

    Blasters only blow up in the hands of people who touch themselves while thinking about Hillary Clinton. God makes it happen to punish you for such a horrible sin.

    Uh, there is a problem with the Glock. Its chamber is not fully supported (and it looks like shit too). Theres a picture floating around online showing like 7 other pistols all with fully supported chambers, xd included, yet the glock doesnt have one. Going on this alone, Glocks are going to be more prone to kb if you get a slightly overpressure round.

    My XD has never rusted. Take care of your weapons and they will not rust. OMG MY AK WILL PROBABLY RUST TOO IF I DONT TAKE CARE OF IT!!!! Refinishing is easy, gluing a gun back together is not.
