Some of the "hangfires" reported in this kind of drill may have been caused by the user covering the top of the slide when racking it back. This can trap an ejected, live case where it can be driven back into the extractor with enough force to ignite the primer.

Folks would rather think it was a hangfire than an operations error. Just like all the guns that go off without anyone touching the trigger...
