G36

Who ever said select fire rifles don’t have a sporting application was wrong:

That’s a nice spread on the table at the beginning!

Recoil Magazine must be shaking in their money filled boots knowing that 3 civilians were able to get a hold of an MP7.  Luckily the only casualty that day was a digital SLR.

Speaking of digital SLRs, I really thought I would get a lot more use out of my Canon 60D than I have so far.  I have used it for some shirt pics and what not, but I just find I don’t have the time to play with it as much as I’d like to.  Maybe I’ll shoot a full look book for ENDO Apparel this summer.

Richard-Ryan-ENDOI know I said this in the past, but Corridor Digital is awesome.  I haven’t posted all that much of their stuff lately because it has been very videogame oriented but you should make sure to check them out.

Make sure you subscribe to Richard Ryan on YouTube or at the very least troll him here or in his comments.

My diagnosis: CHEAP GARBAGE AMMO

Glock 36 Malfunction – Lawsuit Timeline

Note the following from the article:

I fired 120 rounds that day at the range. 100 rounds of Remington UMC ammo and 20 rounds of Corbon JHP +P. I experienced three of the same malfunctions with the Remington ammunition

No problems with the Corbon.  Coincidence?

My son and I fired the weapon on August 13 with 50 rounds of Winchester White Box and 50 rounds of Blazer Brass, both 230g ball factory ammo. I had one malfunction with the Winchester ammo, and my 16 year-old son had the same malfunction with the Blazer Brass

Again, the cheapest ammo you can buy.

I have had similar problems using cheap ammo with my G26.  I would get the occasional FTE (Failure To Extract) when I was positive I was not limp wristing.  This was ALWAYS when I was using a low end ammo such as Winchester white box, Remington UMC, Blazer, or Wolf, all which are notoriously underpoweredI never had one problem with higher priced self defense ammo.

Reading the forums it seems to happen a fair bit with sub-compact models.  I agree that it is unfortunate that the issue exists, but you can’t blame a malfunction on the gun itself, when you are feeding it garbage.

I’d like to see a few hundred self defense rounds ran through that G36.  I would be willing to bet there would be no issues at all.

From what I have read, I don’t believe Glock should have lost the lawsuit.  That said, the situation should never have even reached that point. I would have liked to see them step up earlier on (after the 2nd set of issues) and apologize to Chris about his G36, and offer to exchange it for another gun.  If they would have done that, both parties could have saved a lot of time and effort over something so trivial.

Wow.. These guys look like they are from the future with those googles.

Lets see… HK G36C rifles, handguns likely Glocks or HKs in the drop leg holster by the looks of it, Optics.. Aimpoint comp M4 with the 3x magnifier.  Elbow pads, but no kneepads.

The best part is that the guy right in front obviously didn’t get the memo about putting your pant stirrups inside your shoe not outside, so he managed to break one of his :(
