So Dan and I survived the Texas Concealed Handgun License class. The most interesting part of the seemingly endless endeavor: the instructor’s collection of bad ammunition. Cartridges with protruding primers, missing primers, cartridges with no powder, improperly seated bullets, a bullet inserted backwards and more. (Gallery of God-awful ammo after the jump.) We’ve know that the ammunition shortage has manufacturers cranking out product like Stevie Ray Vaughan cranking out guitar licks. And we’ve heard rumors that quality control was a little, uh, lacking. But this was out first close encounter with bad ammo. It’s at the point where you should physically inspect all your ammunition before insertion – which sounds rude but could save you a digit or more. Meanwhile, have you come across anything like this? . . .
