SUNDAY GUNDAY: 7 Heartbreaking 1911 Pistol Fails

1911 pistol fails

Gun fails can happen to any firearm under certain circumstances.

Faulty ammunition, in many cases, is the direct cause of gun kabooms. Whatever the cause, these 1911 pistol fails will certainly give you quite the shock.

This stricken pistol is an AMT Combat Government Hardballer 1911. An overloaded handloaded .45 ACP. cartridge turned this beauty into scrap within moments.

Whether it’s a Glock, a long gun, a revolver or a 1911 pistol, kabooms can happen. Only shoot quality factory loaded ammunition or your own personally carefully handloaded ammunition. Be careful; you only have one life to live and only so many appendages to lose during that time.
