    Wonder, if it was a "pop no kick" and then chambered another round?

    DIs told us about this situation in basic. Hope that wasnt the case here, because if it was, the individual[:o)] wasnt listening and paid the price.[:(]

    Was this a staged thing, to show what would happen? If it was, it would make a believer out of me to check the bore everytime before I shot.
