I know the Benelli 20 gauge I bought for my child would do that if you say hopped down off a rock while chukar hunting. You had to get used to putting your hand on the action and stopping the charging handle from moving if you were doing anything that would jar the gun.

    Not sure I want that in a firearm I am using for self defense.
    Interesting, I and a couple others (one a top 5 USPSA pro, the other a highly decorated special forces fellow who did some additional "contract" work overseas) did a test that was the subject of an article in a magazine about 30 years ago-we tested a Benelli and a Custom 1187. On top of that I probably have 20,000 clays targets shot with a Beretta 391, and my son shot a few thousand with an 1100 remington. Then I have shot a Benelli or SLP-1 in a few dozen 3G events: my son shoots a Remington Versamax and my wife a police version of an 1187. I also have run a Mossberg Miculeck 3G rig a few dozen times too and I have no idea what you are referring to on self loaders.

    I love my Colt hammerless 1903 reissue. 32 acp is small and cheap with easy to use for the wife as well.
    Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical, liberal, fanatical, criminal.

    Interesting. I presume it is a double-action revolver? I've seen them at gun shows, but I know very little about them.

    No semi automatic, the hammer is just contained in the slide so it can be easily placed in your pocket

    Very nice. Definitely hang on to that. It was only a couple years before (1890 in England and 1895 in the US), that the very first gas-operated firearms were manufactured.

    Re: Gun talk thread for gun enthusiasts

    Just had to re-up on ammo. Got my optic sighted in and plinked way more than was necessary the last time I went to the range, but it was a really ghetto outdoor range and we were using makeshift targets - was down to like...maybe one 50rd mag and some change. Need to hit an indoor range soon and make sure everything's holding well, and sight in my laser for shorter distances.

    Try this. Obviously an unloaded Benelli or if you prefer, one with a snap cap. Cock it so its ready to fire... then jar the stock (butt first) on the ground (lightly of course). Then try to fire the weapon. You will find that it will not fire. Take a look at the mechanism in the action and you will see that the "bolt" face is slightly rotated. You can do the same thing if you are handling the firearm and jump down from a foot or so. The inertia will jar the action and it will slightly rotate come out of battery and then not fire.

    I don't know if this happens with other autoloaders because I only have benellis.. but it definitely happens.. and not just mine.
    So we should put you down as supporting putting GPS trackers in everyone to "save lives"?

    Interesting, next time I pull one of the benellis out, I will try that. I have a few but since I now use the SLP-1 I have them in the back of a big safe
