recently figured out that loading a 1911 with a closed slide takes more pressure than i thought. cycled the slide, click. waited 30 seconds or so(thought it was a missfire), checked breech, cycled again, click. look down, magazine is out about 1/8". gave it a good smack, and pinched my hand between mag and frame, drawing a little blood. now i understand what plastic mag bottoms are for.
not really an important event, just the firing range.
