Wait... Explain this a little more...
If the round wasn't "fully into battery", the firing pin shouldn't have done anything at all, as in the trigger shouldn't work. If it DID and the slide wasn't in battery, you should be REALLY glad the round didn't ignite. Firing a cartridge that's not in battery can be a really bad thing.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
