Fresh Reminder of the First Rule of Safety

So yesterday I was doing a little ammo testing with my one of my favorites. My old Marlin 981T .22 which is one of the last real Marlins. It is restocked with a Rifle Basix trigger in it. Yesterday i chambered one and had the safety on. I remember pulling a smidgen harder a second time once I realized the safety was on. I pushed the safety to fire and bam! I will have to investigate that as it's never happened after thousands of rounds. Good thing it was pointed down range! Safeties are mechanical and can fail! Only trust yourself not the firearm. Not the first time either. Last time was my fault through carelessness. Familiarity often breeds complacency. Thanks.
