    It pays to check out the safety features on any new gun and on your existing guns from time to time.

    Function test and test fire on a new gun can save a world of hurt.

    I am really surprised at some folks I meet who buy a gun and begin carrying without ever firing it. That just does not compute...

    One of the key reasons why I always send a couple hundred rounds through a gun, when I'm new to it. Never know what you'll find ... from strange functions to odd features, from questionable reliability to things that need to be changed. I'd much rather be fully familiar, than to get surprised.


    Interesting, that a contemporary, big-name shotgun like that fires without a trigger pull. I wonder if others have been able to reliability duplicate the "test" he seems to have performed, or whether it's a rare one-off problem.

    I believe so. I have an SXP that does not manifest that failure.

    New firearm. ALWAYS clean, function check and familiarize before firing for the first time.

    I'm sure this guy knows the firing pin is stuck in the out position. That's why it fires on closing! it has nothing to do with the trigger, or safety. I'm sure its a factory defect, and this guy is ticked, but its a simple fix. if he had showed the bolt face the firing pin would be sticking out. Its something that can happen to both new and used guns. It is one of the function checks I do when picking up a new gun. DR

    Defects happen. Send it back.
    Why does he say you should never load a gun in a house? Should I go out the front door and stand along the highway when I load my carry?
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
