HK and to a lesser extent Glock both were proud of that their barrels won't explode if the user doesn't realize he has fired a squib round. HK went as far with their USP to say that the gun will still be combat accurate despite any bulges that may occur as a result (not sure if that goes across all calibers or primarily the 9mm USP that underwent all their stress testing).

This doesn't apply to kaboom incidents where the unsupported part of the cartridge detonates the gun into plastic confetti because some interwebs commando reloads a 10mm round to 100k psi.
