Nothing too serious, just one embarrassing moment.

I have had a few failures to seat the magazine properly (and forgot to do a chamber check). Click...?

There have been a few times when I've gotten nose high jams in a 1911, and one or two FTRBs. That was due to using wadcutters in a 1911 with weak springs.

The embarrassing one was at my first 3-gun competition. It was on the 4th or 5th stage. Pistol was last. I finished the shotgun targets, drew, aimed, pulled the trigger...and nothing happened, not even a click. Somewhere during this process the thought "my 1911 feels lighter than normal" rumbled around the back of my mind. When I realized the hammer had not dropped and my pistol felt lighter than normal, I was able to practice my speed (not re-)load.
