Anything created by humans can and will fail at some point in time. It's the laws of mechanics or the laws of humanity, or the knowledge that nothing will ever be perfect in this world. No matter what you believe, or where you place your trust, you either work with what's given, or you accept what is. That's pretty much all there is to it.
I truly sympathize with you on your ordeal and that statistics have finally found you. Best thing about it all is that you're still alive to experience it. I'd say it's been a good day overall in that respect. Prepare yourself the best you can for things to come.
Once in 20 years.Wow you are a lucky guy.
Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
Hey Bug, I'm sorry for your issues, but I'm glad they took place at the range and not when you really needed them to work!

PS. Roy, yes I'm up at 1:30...insomnia rules!!! If Jeff does shoot my 22, he'll hit the ground in front of the target. It makes small holes in his yard, kind of like aerating. It will probably do it some good.

No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
It was a sarcastic remark said in the spirit of sarcasm, which doesn't play well to the printed media. I actually have no idea how many rounds you have fired over the years, not that it matters. It was a silly comment that should've been left untyped.
I typed to you like I would say something to a friend, but only those friends that shoot. I try to use each malfunction as a learning opportunity, be it do do a clearance drill or a draw and shoot my BUG exercise. It forces one to adapt and improvise on the spur of the moment. Once again, my apologies sir. Take care and stay safe.
