Guns: What Is A Stovepipe? (Guns)

How to Shoot Fast & Accurately  

The Gun Digest Book Of Concealed Carry

 

One type of gun failure is a stovepipe. A stovepipe is when the spent casing gets caught by the slide before being ejected from the gun. The empty case gets caught by the closing slide and gets stuck sticking out the side of the slide. It looks like a stove pipe. Stovepipes are associated with problems with certain ammunition or pistols that jam because the shell isn't ejected properly.
