    I take it this is the place you bought the defective ammo from?

    If so, do you mind taking a picture of the box and post it on here?

    I realize this may be an indictment of the company, and I am sorry for that.

    Let me try to get in touch with them 1st, this could have been a coincidence and maybe not, but do not want to bad-mouth anyone until I have had the opportunity to speak with them

    It was a squib load... no big deal, should not have harmed your pistol at all... I wouldnt be concerned it happens with factory ammo every now and then as well.

    Yes, I have had a squib in WWB, Magtec, and even Horniday TAP defense ammo.

    It ain't common, but it DOES happen. That is why LEO'S do malfunction clearing drills AND carry back up weapons.

    I would not worry too much about any FACTORY AMMO. I've had 3 my whole life and I've shot THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of rounds.

    I don't worry much about MY handloads. I've never had a squib - but #1 I'm anal about my loading technique AND I readily admit that I've been lucky!!!

    Ammowerkes - Chappelhill, TX was from the credit card statement.

    Honetly, I have been shooting for about 51 years, I have also fired thousands, maybe 10's of thousands of rounds, and this is the 1st squib I have ever experienced in any gun.

    Perhaps this may not be a big deal, but I must admit that a cold chill did run down my back when I realized what had happened, since if the brass had ejected, I must wonder if I would have caught that it was a squib before I sent another bullet down the tube.

    The other issue is that I had two malfunctions in one 50-round box of ammo, as ConnRadd witnesed, this was the 2nd malfunction. A couple of rounds before I had a FTF and looked at the cartridge to find that the brass was wrinkled, so it wouldn't feed.

    After I pounded out the bullet, I took the G27 out the next day and ran the cheapest dirtiest range ammo that I could find through the pistol to see if the G27 would shoot and if I could force another malfunction/misfire. I could not force it to misfire, even to the point of limp-wristing the pistol, the pistol is fine so maybe I just got a poor box of ammo

    Like they say, "God watches over Children and Fools, and I ain't no Children!"

    Might call the Credit Card company and see if they can get you number or an address. Explain to them that you might have some defective product and see what they say.
