Guide rods defective or not have nothing to do with a Ka-Boom. They do nothing to support your argument.

They are still producing their guns in large numbers.
Wow. You just listed your first documentation. It seems you are able to do effective research. I appreciate your listing a study indicating the gun was not at fault (thanks for helping me prove my point) BUT THE AMMO WAS.
You have failed. You are unable to prove your point.
You have not shown that an unsupported chambers cause dramatic failure in a firearm. If pressure were the issue, why did the hundreds of thousands of 1903 Springfields used by our armed forces see service in both WWI and WWII? The pressures of the 30-06 cartridge surpass that of a .40 or 9mm. Yet the gun worked well.
I note that as this debate continued your opinion changed.
Your original statement was: “Glock 26 - unsupported chamber cause of case rupture explosions = gun destroyed & possible injury to shooter”
And now: “Glocks are not bad handguns. But they are not the perfect handguns that the legions of fanboys make them out to be. Be a knowledgeable consumer, don't take fanboy endorsements at face value, compare products and choose the one that makes the most sense for you.”
(I would like to point out that if you had made this comment earlier I would not have said anything as it is clearly stated as an opinion and not a fact.)
I fail to see what relevance my nickname of “pole smoking ass pirate” has to this debate. The term was coined by a small minded man who was too stupid to listen to a reasonable explanation, all that mattered was his uneducated opinion. Oh wait, now I see why you used it…
Since you seem to have given up on logic, and resorted to sarcasm, (a common tactic employed by those who are unable to support their argument with facts) I will no longer reply to your comments in this thread.
Have a pleasant day.
