Vigilant Spectre Examines Some Glock Myths

Busting some Glock myths:

Everything was safe enough up until 4:53… “Tactical Bacon” pushes him in the water, no big deal I thought that was funny… but then what happens next blew my mind…

HE SHOT TOWARD HIS FEET WHILE HE WAS IN THE WATER.

OMG my head just exploded… These guys were made for each other.

Thoughts?  Hopefully Vigilant Spectre doesn’t file another police report on me for this post. ;)

Yeah I’m wondering what they did internally, to screw with it…I’m thinking they took it apart, and missed a part or screwed with the extractor or ejector.

I shot mine with all sorts of ammo, and even tried it underwater once…always ran fine.

James M&P June 15, 2012 at 01:12 am

It really could be anything from a poor extractor to a shitty recoil spring. Weapons in the hands of total idiots tend not to function too well doesn’t matter what make; Kimber Glock Beretta.

I am really interested in how they got a Glock to malfunction that many times. They have been blown up, froze, thrown off cliffs, out of helicopters, shot, drug behind cars, buried for 2 years, soaked in motor oil, ran in concrete mixers, I think nutnfacny even tested one in his colon.

And did they really expect it to run under water?? It’s not designed for that. So much tactical derp.

What really hurts me is that they are torturing a firearm, and still try it out wearing no eye protection of any kind, no earplugs nor ballistic armor.
We saw (on this blog already) what CAN happen with a firearm (a M1 Garand in this case if I remember well) even when clean and correctly used…
Damn, even if it’s a Glock or whatever AK-47, and you expect it to cycle very well after this kind of exercise, put some fucking glasses on!

If I had to test this, I’d even attach it to a tree an pull the trigger with a long, long string the first time… Just in case!

I DO however understand using BDUs when getting dirty, because wearing khakis all the time is just fucking insane. Just look at Sig’s marketing of the 516 here, starts around 14:10 seconds, and moves on to “messy”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFZ3yUMH5IA&t=14m10s

Would I wear khakis while doing shit like in the video ENDO-Mike posted here? Hell no.
Would I wear BDUs? Maybe pants, but even then, probably not.
What would I wear? My goddamned Carharts.

Man, one thing that, to me, perfectly illustrates how stupid this shit is is a real small practical one.
Why would you reach into the water to retrieve that pistol with your glove on and sleeve rolled down?
Is that part of the ‘function test’ of that pistol under ‘operator’ conditions?
Just from my experience with hunting, it’s a real pain in the ass to have part of you soaking wet and you’ve still gotta sit out there for 3 or 4 hours.
These tools are playing dress up for sure. Wow.

You are forgetting that they have done this before. Also, Mike since you keep bringing it up:
Through communications with the guys over at VSC it sounds like his wife is the one that actually submitted the complaint and report. You should probably feel like a complete douche for scaring the poor girl and remove your previous post in good faith. That shit just ain’t right and should be reserved for that tubby veteran hater and the like.

Terry June 15, 2012 at 08:44 am

I dont think its the criticism that was the issue, if it was then why would they continue, knowing that Mike is trolling the shit out of their page looking for “safety violations”. I think it has more to do with him republishing loosely connected information that could compromise their safety. For that sort of action against one of our own I think that Mike has blackened his soul a bit and it’s just not right, even if you don’t agree with them or their practices. That sort of crap should be reserved for people like Mucho Moore and the rest of the Antiguan activists.

Well, i cant see his feet in that murky water so i cant say where he was shooting but i do love a good piss the glock fanboys of video.
Proper glock operation is only achieved after rubbing it all over your sac and ensuring plenty of anal lube and jizz have been worked into the mechanism.
Fortunately most glock fanboys have a penis size that will easily fit in the barrel of their chosen caliber so they can achieve this and save not only having to buy themselves a fleshlight but the embarrassment of having their mom find it when she cleans the basement.

Glocker23 June 15, 2012 at 11:26 pm

I would love to detail strip that Glock to see what was really going on in there. I can’t see how some dust (which is all that was in there, after shaking out the dirt and then firing it) and some water would prevent any firearm from firing. Underwater I can see some function issues, however, being that I don’t believe that this Glock wasn’t messed with first, no need to even get into that. Even if all they did was install the maritime spring cups, that requires a detail strip, and I’m not even sure these guys could figure THAT out without breaking something.

Meh, these idiots dressed in camo that flag themselves with firearms and act/look like complete tools attempting to “prove” something to me isn’t going to make me lose any sleep. If they don’t enjoy Glocks, I’ll be happy to take that piece of crap off your hands. I’ll even be nice and give you $100 for it, given the first thing I will do is switch out any parts you “installed”.

Well guys ENDO Mike didn’t update today and he never takes a day off (ENDO….?) That being said the best logical conclusion I have come up with over the last six hours is that it’s on us to organize a SAR mission in the back woods of Ohio. I guess this post just pushed the “Spectres” over the edge. I’m willing to take a free formed militia consisting of able bodied US citizens, that LEGALLY own their firearms. Find some helo guys (6-8 birds) that are familiar with current infil/exfil operations, stop at an armory along the way for extra supplies* (*get a working list going, they generally have a lot of goodies at these places*)…. Well Gentleman/Ladies I must depart with due haste!

Everyone seemed to have missed that he “installed Maritime Spring Caps” on his Glock. I had to look up what that was. It replaces the spring caps on the firing pin spring and requires breaking down the gun further then normal user maintenance. In the video it looks like they are having extractor issues, which makes me think, maybe they put the gun together wrong. And everyone knows once you start replacing parts the Glock may or may not work like it did from the factory. I will not be putting Maritime Spring caps on my gun anytime soon.

Reply

hydepark June 16, 2012 at 04:45 pm

What everyone here seems to be missing also is this: that dust test or whatever they want to call it is NOT how it’s done. A grit / contamination test is done with a loaded magazine and a round in the chamber. If you’re in the shit your pistol had better be chambered first thing every single morning. I’m actually really shocked nobody here has mentioned this yet, unless I missed something while reading all 50 comments above.

I like that Mike posts stuff from everywhere on the internet. But I don’t like these guys.

Some loads a HANDGUN like that because they have trained to limit the amount of time they spend out of the fire control position.

Max June 18, 2012 at 01:19 am

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? What the heck are you talking about? Loading a handgun with one’s firing side hand is faster than using the support side? I’m fairly certain that if you hold onto the pistol in the “fire control position” you can eject/insert mags pretty easily…. It’s either that or I’m retarded, but all things considered it is the former.

Jim P. June 17, 2012 at 10:58 am

There must be something wrong with that particular weapon. I admit I’ve never fired a Glock, and never worried about how great they are. But if 100K+ LEO’s, military and others carry them with no major issues, they did something to that one that is causing the issue.

Aside from these guys beimg about the biggest dorks I’ve see in a long time, it was obvious from the very beginning of the video that they had a plan to try and ash the glock for some reason. As soon as they they began to shoot the glock I remember predicting that they would somehow have a problem. It was so obvious what was coming. The glock appeared to be ejecting very weakly. It appeared that they were using weak loads or maybe a .40 recoil spring in it for the tests or something.
