    Finally Sig P226, but......

    Well I'm adding a Sig P226 to my EDC. Got an early ( 1988 ) "JJ" model. German engineering at its best. I loved the way it shot, but something happened that I have to share with the rest. See how many times this can happen.

    I live out in the country, so I can practice safely without having to find a range. A friend got me some big stumps, that needed split for fire wood. That wood is so petrified nobody could even put a dint on them with a 13# maul.

    Well, I stacked the stumps on top of each other in front of an enbankment, and they became my back stops. I already split a couple of them in half ( full of copper plated lead ). Today I decided to run a full magazine with an empty casing to practice clearing a malfunction. Well, bang, bang bang, "click", tap, rack, bang ,bang, empty. Slide locked back.

    Time to pick up brass. HOW CAN THIS BE POSSIBLE? around my pile of brass, I found "A BULLET". Slightly scratched if anything, but the bullet was by my feet!!!

    Did my Sig feel sorry for me, for feeding her empty brass, that she decided to give me back a bullet? ***?



    P.S. My handgun spontaneous practice is usually from 7 to 12 yards from the target.

    Are you sure that you didn't rack it twice?

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Depending on the backstop it has been known for bullets to ricochet and come back at the shooter. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ABGIJwiGBc

    Not uncommon at all. Hard backstop, mid powered handgun round. This is why many steel target systems are angled down so the round will deflect to the ground instead of back at the shooter.
    NY27 he is talking about a projectile laying at his feet.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    Thanks every one. Next time I pull the trigger at that target, I will ninja jump, and tuck and roll like a real warrior should train.

    All jokes aside, I'm glad it wasn't my time, but it reminded me of "Creesse", when he asked Christopher Walken, if he "ever had a bad primer", and Walken said, " ..a bullet never lies".
