I was at the fun range sunday,shooting my 22 and started getting several Failures to Fire,Never had problems with the ammo before,so I field stripped the gun and wiggled firing pin back and forth to make sure it was moving.I shot some breakfree on the firing pin and reassembled,inserted amag and as I pointed down range released the slide and the gun fired :gah: .I unloaded the gun and field stripped it again,the firing pin had broken and when I was moving it must have wedged it past the bolt face causing a slam fire.The gun has over 20,000 rounds thru it without any problems til now.Had I not observed the safety rules it could have been bad.$10.00 in parts and it will be up and running again

Good muzzle awareness! I had a S&W 22A.....won it in a drawing and never fired a shot before I traded it off for something else. In a way, I wish I had a 22lr pistol now. 20k rounds! Wow!

my 22a is my favorite range gun...just a barrel of accurate and inexpensive fun...i let a couple of kids from the table next to me fire it the other day and they went crazy over it...

Shows the importance of good safety habits. Very well done and point well made (no pun intended). KUDOS!
