As im sitting here logged into gunslot while a friend of mine is having a "good ol time" with my XD-45acp...I get a call..." Ummm dude your slide is stuck on your xd"..After he gets to my house with the wounded weapon i begin the questioning....."loads used"? ..hornady 230 grain.." K what the hell happened???" of course he doesn't know..It looked like it had been mauling the tops off of the cartridges.The weapon was clear of all rounds though and i didn't see any pieces of cartridge lodged anywhere.So i call the gun shop I am loyal to and of course my guy isn't there it is the help..He says " Oh that happens with XD's from time to time.You need to put a towel down on your table and just slam the gun down real hard on back of the slide it should release." ummm????? Regardless of rounds not being present to the eye this sounds like the worse advice ever. I looked this up and i see people actually doing this to they're seized XD..I would like to know if anyone has any safer less damaging thoughts around this or maybe an answer to why this has happened after 800+rounds and religious maintaining..Or should i just use my friends head as the surface in which i slam my gun..
The one breathing didn't hesitate
