    Going to check out Walther’s customer service

    Shot 5 rounds out of a 12 round mag yesterday in my PPQ45 and then the squib happened. Can’t back the round out. I’ll give Walther a call tomorrow.

    This is the second squib I’ve experienced, first one was in a different gun. Both had a lot of unspent powder in the gun and on my hands.

    This ammo was new factory self defense loads.

    That's a scary thought, having a squib as your first round in a gun fight.
    Was the other squib Liberty ammo too?

    Squibs are more of an issue with the ammo, the ammo manufacturer is at fault.
    As long as the firearm isn't damaged I don't think there is anything Walther can do, if it is damaged then the makers of Liberty Critical Defense owe You a new gun.
    I also don't trust small ammunition manufacturers even for practice ammo.
    To the gun grabbers:
    What kind of malicious intent do You have towards Me that makes You fear the fact that I may have a firearm.

    Walther wants it back to thoroughly examine the pistol. I've only had it 2 months + 150 rounds.
