You're missing the point, Jim.

The point is, it's a game of random chance -- maybe 3 in 100, or maybe none. You just don't know.

Just as in my example no one could look at any of those cartridges and say "yes, that's the one that's going to blow my gun to hell," no one can look at a low number Springfield and say "this one is NEVER going to let loose and take off half of my face."

And yes, the point, and analogy, are both valid because both establish and unknown element of random chance in to the equation.
