CD1, I'm glad it worked out, and you had the wits about you to follow through with a good shot. Here's a darwin award candidate who also had a misfire, but it didn't turn out quite so well for him

NOMINEE NO. 7: ["The Indianapolis Star"].
A cigarette lighter may have triggered a fatal explosion in Dunkirk, Indiana. A Jay County man using a cigarette lighter to check the barrel of a muzzle-loader was killed Monday night when the weapon discharged in his face, sheriff's investigators said. Gregory David Pryor,19, died in his parents' rural Dunkirk home about 11:30 pm. Investigators said Pryor was cleaning a 54-caliber muzzle loader that had not been firing properly. He was using the lighter to look into the barrel when the gunpowder ignited.
