Still has his fingers too.

That same exact thing (same gun too) happened to my brother a month ago.
FWIW - He was shooting Wolf ammo (not the Wolf Gold).

Gun fired out of battery. Polymer frame could not hold the pressure and shattered. Guy is OK but probably had to change his shorts.

Wonder if poor weapon hygiene habits contributed to that.

I carry an XD, I hope that poor cleaning was the cause, because I am religious about keeping my weapons clean and oiled.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

Im guessing reloads caused that... not cleaning.

Doubt it was a malfunction. Most likely cause is a high primer. If the primer doesn't seat far enough into the primer pocket, it can stick out above the rim. The bolt face can smack the primer hard enough to set it off before the round has a chance to chamber.
In theory, I suppose a dirty gun maybe could be more likely to Kaboom. If the chamber is dirty, it could create more friction on the round and cause the bolt face to smack the round harder.

I had an 1187 do this to me once. It was about dusk after a long day of shooting skeet. Lucky for me it was a target load with 8-1/2 shot. All the lead went down the pipe, but the brass and plastic came out the ejection port. Since I am a lefty, the blast caught me in the side of the face and detached the retina in my left eye. Lost 60% of the vision in that eye. I can't bring myself to shoot a shotgun with a right-hand ejection port to this day.

I also religiously check my ammo everytime I buy a box. It doesn't go on the shelf until I have check every round.

Yeah my first thought is a primer that wasn't seated, the XD's have an out of battery safety so the trigger pull won't release the sear unless the slide is closed.

That guy is definitely luck to have all his digits...

It was an overpressured round. Be it reload or factory, it was not an out of battery round that went off. If it was out of battery then the damage to the guns frame would not be that severe. The overpressured round that was fired while fully in battery cause the frame damage and such. The pressure has got to go somewhere. In this case, it blew out the bottom of the case and expelled +40,000 psi of energy into the polymer frame blowing it apart...
