I'm gonna go with Jim on this one.
The exception would be if you can train on your own range or a range where everyone has agreed to abide by other than the basic firearm safety guidelines.
But if you're on the line next to other shooters and you get a misfire, you'd be wise to keep the muzzle pointed downrange for 30 seconds. If you eject a hangfire that bursts and injures the shooter(s) next to you, you'd better have some pretty impressive liability insurance. Cause any BASIC firearm safety course material is going to show that you didn't exercise proper caution/follow the accepted procedures in dealing with your misfire/hangfire.
My guess is that very few shooters are going to happily to carry your brass home from the range in their faces just so you can feel tactical.
