No, idiot - stop jerking off your gun.Load it. Thats it. This in not a movie.
I always wonder why people manipulate their guns so much. Put a magazine in the gun, jack a round into the chamber, and leave the dang thing alone. No need to be continually clearing and reloading the chamber! No need to worry about primer strikes and bullet set-back.Or am I missing something?
I do this anyway. My chambered round is kept in place for one week and I empty my carry piece and disassemble and check things out, relube, and reassemble. My carry piece does not like chambering rounds dropped into the barrel and slide tripped. I have never had a round fail to fire but then after awhile I just empty the mag and put in fresh. I am very careful not to allow oil and solvents come in contact with ammunition.
Hey, just go to the range and empty your piece by shooting it. Then reload your mags or revolver chambers. If you keep the old ammo that was carried, you just increase the chances it won't work if you inadvertently reload with it later. That will give you a little more practice, which we can all use.- Old Greybeard
I've been shooting for quite a long time, reloaded some of it and I've never had or seen a primer come loose.. this must be some really oversized primer pockets or reloaded too many times to be used for defending your life.The concept of accepting that this happened is foreign to me.. so should I expect that if you drop or have your weapon knocked loose from your grip you should be concerned that the primer will fall out.. ???Buy better ammo dude and find another reload supplier..Yank lll
The article says the compound in the primer, not the primer itself Yankee.Most people manipulate their guns to do dry fire drills, since they didn't spend an extra $400+ on a second gun to do such with. Bullet setback is widely known, even with limiting unloading to a few times a week.You also generally clean it at some point.
How did the primer pellet move?There's am anvil on one side, and the primer "shell" on the other.The pellet would have to break to move, and if there was enough force to break it, I kind of think that it would have gone off.
"Most people manipulate their guns to do dry fire drills, since they didn't spend an extra $400+ on a second gun to do such with.

Last session each week take the old round out of the chamber, throw it in a box and install a new round. Shoot up those rounds you threw in the box in a range session now and then. You've just gone through one box of ammo per year even if you dry-fire 3 times a week. Seems like the cost should be bearable.Dry firing generally does not require the gun to be cleaned. Maybe a wipedown once a month, or when you throw that round into that box.I don't know, I still don't see why bullet setback and primer strikes are a problem.
