    Had another "Mall Ninja" incident last night wile working at an indoor firing range. Some guy brought in his friends to shoot a bunch of his guns. In the mix he had a Glock 22 and a Beretta 92FS. As you may be aware, the Glock 22 eats .40 s&w cartridges and the Beretta 92FS eats 9mm cartridges. As the guys were shooting, all seemed to be fine until the began shooting the Glock 22. The gun would fire and fail to chamber the next round. I've only seen this happen a few times. Each time it was a problem with the magazine. After swapping magazines twice, I noticed the brass on the firing bench. The three pieces of brass appeared to be deformed. At this point I checked out the ammo. The guy managed to load his magazines with 9mm ammunition and was firing it in the Glock 22. The 9mm case apparently expanded to the size of the .40 barrel! After discreetly pointing out his error and checking out the rest of his stuff, I did a quick armorer's check of the Glock 22. Everything looked good, so I welcomed them to continue firing.

    I was amazed that the Glock 22 fired the 9mm ammunition accurately. At the same time, I was glad that nobody was injured in the process.

    I did a GIS for the Glock 22 and noticed that it says ".40" right there on the left side of the slide.

    Was this particular individual blind or something?

    To be fair, there are "ninjas" in pretty much every area. How many of have run into the 17 year old that "knows everything about cars" for example or the boat owner that's things he's Admiral Nimitz. Hell, I take a lot of coworkers and friends fishing and you'd think these guys were Bill Dance when they showed up at the pier, but come to find out they don't even know how to cast a rod & reel.

    I hear you. Had the guy at the auto parts store today trying to sell me these $8 "name brand" hose clamps when there was another brand of the exact same thing selling for $4. When I read the back of the lower priced hose clamps it read something like "Manufactured for [lower priced brand] by [higher priced brand]". I pointed this out to the store clerk and he still insisted that the "name brand" was "better". I bought the lower priced hose clamps and what do you know, they worked as they were supposed to.

    I guess you can find the "mall ninja" types just about anywhere if you look hard enough. :icon_cheesygrin:
