Can you successfully fire a handgun without an extractor? James from TFB TV finds out for you in his myth-busting YouTube video.
Have you ever wondered if your handgun would work successfully without the extractor? Lucky for you, you don’t have to test this out for yourself.
YouTube channel TFB TV shares their myth-busting experiment to show what happens when you remove an extractor and then try to fire.
An extractor typically works in conjunction with the ejector to remove empty cartridges from the fired weapon, which in turn preps the chamber to successfully load the next round. Without the extractor in place, the gun can usually fire only one round. Trying to shoot after this shot would likely cause a misfire because the next round would not be able to load properly into the chamber.

While the victim was vacuuming her vehicle, a teenage male came out of a red van parked next to her and attempted to drive away with her car. The suspect began to speed up after the owner of the white Honda jumped onto the hood with the intent of stopping him from driving away. A Smyrna, Georgia city worker was passing by and drew his gun.

Va. woman was arrested for posting gun selfie on Facebook in response to a misdirected threat.
Kristin Holmes, Chesterfield, Va., was arrested Saturday after posting a controversial photo of herself in response to an argument with fellow Facebook users. After being mistaken for another woman, Holmes posted an image of herself pointing a gun at the camera along with a caption that read “I’ll post a few actual pics of me so you’ll know the difference when you ‘come find me’”.
Shortly after the image was posted to Facebook, a user reported the image to the Hernico Police Department. Holmes claims that her post was not meant as a threat and removed the photo once she realized that the image could come across as something other than a joke.
“What happened to freedom of speech?” Holmes asked NBC12. “And it was just a picture. It wasn’t a threat. I thought it was a funny picture, and then I realized later that it was a little bit intimidating. So I took it down.”
