    So I was doing some pistol/carbine training yesterday and my instructor was having me do speed reload drills. Before the drill, I locked back the slide and loaded one cartridge into the chamber by hand and released the slide. I then fired the handgun without a magazine inside and then reloaded a full magazine into the handgun. When I tried to power stroke the weapon, I looked down and saw the first shell failed to extract. (see picture below)

    Anyone know what could of caused this? I've ran about 500 rounds through this weapon so far with no problems. I have fired it before without a magazine inside too. My instructor was confused as well, he said he had never seen a Glock do this before in his lifetime. He suggested limp wristing or a bad extractor. I did fire it the rest of the day without any problems, so I'm hoping it's a one time deal.

    Check to see if you chipped the extractor. Dropping the slide on a chambered round is not a good idea with any pistols.

    I hope "bubba loading" wasn't part of the course.

    Even if the extractor isn't damaged, it's possible that it didn't engage correctly because of the way it was loaded. The extractor isn't meant to snap over the rim of the case. It's meant to have the rim feed upward into the claw as the round pops up from the magazine.

    I dont know why people slide the frame back and lock it and then put the magazine in and hit the slide lock release and then shoot. I put the magazine and cock the slide back and then shoot.

    I like to put in the magazine, slide the trigger back, then rail the gun sideways, before releasing the slide and taking out the magazine before I fire.

    It's the most dependable way to shoot a handgun in my opinion. ;)

    I agree with the other posts. Dropping the slide on a chambered round is not a good idea.

    If you want to remove and inspect the extractor here are some pictorial instructions.

    Yeah that made no sense to me. Especially the part about taking out the magazine before firing:confused:

    Sorry for the blurry shot.

    This was about the 400th round shot out of this pistol. Third round in the magazine. FMJ Blazer Brass rounds.. I dont know why this happened it was about the 400th round I've ever shot out of a handgun.

    Any thoughts on to why this happened? Was it something I did? If so how do i prevent it?

    That looks like an extractor issue or limp wristing. If it happens again, send it to Glock.
