Did you examine the pistol to discover what had happened? At the range, that would have been a very good thing to do instead of simply cycling the slide and continuing shooting. Troubleshooting and resolving problems can help to prevent future similar problems.Here is a link to TacDaddy shooting the RUGER LCP. One misfeed clearly seen during the firing of the second magazine. Nice clean and clear, if I say so myself.... has this happened to anyone else?
I would have stopped shooting and examined the jam to discover precisely what had happened.I was practicing cycling through 2 mags ASAP.... shooting Remington ammo, about 100-150 rounds into the gun, still in the break in period in my opinion. We did examine the cartridge in question and founds a small indentation on the side of the round. How would you suggest I further troubleshoot? I have not had any similar issues with this gun since, and just happened to get this misfeed on tape! Thanks for the input!
I would have been trying to find if there was a failure to extract or eject the previously fired cartridge case. If neither of those occurred (that would be obvious if the empty case is not in the pistol and is where the rest of the fired cases get tossed), then I'd be looking for/at the cartridge that was supposed to be fed into the chamber. Where it is located is critically important to understanding what could be wrong. The position of the slide during the jam can also tell me a lot.OK Skip -"I would have stopped shooting and examined the jam to discover precisely what had happened."
