Random question that I never really gave much thought to, as I have never had a misfire. But if you have a misfire and you eject the faulty round, what is the proper way to dispose of it at the range?
throw it downrange really far. well, thats what i do if im in the desert.
i dont know about a brick n mortat type range, your best bet is to let a rangemaster handle it. Actually i just remembered this happened to me about a year ago, the range master wasnt nearby, i had an FTF, dented primer. The gun wasnt hot so i just reloaded it and tried again, no bang, left the pistol pointed downrange for 5 min while i shot another gun, after i realized it wasnt going to spontaneously combust i just tossed it in the trash.
Dont do anything i just said as itll probly kill you and i dont need a lawsuit.
see im not the only one, lol.just tuck it into your pocket...lol
Depending on the gun I will ether cock it again and try a second time, and if its still no go I will set gun down facing down range and do something else for a bit...if it still doesn't go off I will unload it and toss it down range...
If you have a failure to fire you should keep the gun pointed downrange for at least 30 seconds, and then eject it. Once it is out of the gun, and no barrel or chamber to create pressure, a bullet really isn't going to do much of anything in the way of damage if the primer were to finally go off.We had a misfire at the inddor shooting range, ejected it, and gave it to the range manager.
Not entirely true...Once it is out of the gun, and no barrel or chamber to create pressure, a bullet really isn't going to do much of anything in the way of damage if the primer were to finally go off.
