  • Plastic or metal

    I was searching for that mystery pistol and wasn't having any luck until I looked for airsoft pistols. There were too many that matched the frame and I didn't want to guess what weapon the punk had cobbled together. An airsoft will get you shot dead because nobody wants to find out if it was a toy or not when something is pointed at them.

    Well anyway there were HUNDREDS of images for Glock Grenades. I'll stick with metal!!!

    Just look in google images "glock explosion". I'm sure you will find the reason, I'm sticking with steel. (There are some steel weapons that can grenade on you also - best to know the ammo manufacturer)

    I tried to figure this post out, but gave up.

        Sorry about that. I was trying to figure out what that plastic EBT pistol the 16yo punk had on him. When looking at plastic pistols no match, I checked airsoft and there were a few that matched the lower but not the upper slide or hammer.

        That's when I happened across probably 100+ pictures of exploded glocks. HK's there were only 4. Other plastic pistols just a few that blew up in owners hands. 20+ springfield XD's, 9 or 10 of the EAA series. Some brands I couldn't identify.

        In a nutshell if it's plastic it can blow up. Same can be said of metal but they were "Off Brands", yes there were a few colts and smith n Nothings.

        For the most part metal tends to hold up better and plastics well they are like disposable razors.

        You can search using KaBoom with any plastic brand and count the unique numbers to get a feel for how many plastic pistols blow up, you will also find some metal ones, even the M-9 has failures but those mostly are the barrels.

            Are you referring to that post, about a week ago - teen was arrested for gun possession, but it looked to be totally hobbled together by random, unrelated parts?

            iirc the thread was titled "What do you think would happen if he pulled the trigger" or something to that effect

            EDIT to add: I believe you are referencing back to this thread/topic?

                    WAS THAT MADE ON A 3D PRINTER, WHEN i was 15 and in high school. i packed a beretta 22cal Minx, not some piece of crap this punk carried.And nobody knew on the school staff i packed. and nobody ever got shot. It was for my self preservation. From all the other thugs carrying bike chains, Knifes, Slaps and straight razors. yeah that freaking Tilden was a tough school on Halsted.
