The bad guy suffered a hearty case of double feed. As gun malfunctions go, it might be possible the worst one to have in case of emergency as it takes forever to clear…OK ,it takes about a minute and some seconds if you know what you are doing, but in conflict that may be pretty much the rest of your life. Magazine will not drop because the top round is halfway out. slide won’t rack back, essentially you are just handling a very short club.

It is nice to see that it happened to the bad guy.

    1. I have a Ruger LCP and have put 100’s of rounds through it at the range and never had a feed problem…. even after changing from a stock 9lb. to a Wolff 12lb.recoil spring (to reduce recoil because it is a lightweight polymer gun.)

    2. I have 4 of them, stainless and black in 9mm and 40, all compact. The 9mm stainless SR9c is one of my Fav CCW pistols. Mine has never malfed on me. It, like all my other Rugers, has been doggedly reliable.

      It’s sad for me to see a Ruger fail. I can only take solace on the fact that I’ve seen other guns (including the “never fail ever” Glock) do this.

  1. Yeah, a minute is pretty much forever in those situations.

    From the Halo multiplayer game settings menu: “It will take you 30 seconds to respawn when you are killed. This will give you an idea of what eternity is like.”(AND IT’S TRUE!)

  2. I cleared one on the clock last week at our IDPA club match. It took seven seconds. Mostly because I’m practiced and knew what to do pretty quickly. That said, seven seconds might as well be two hours in a gunfight.
