Guns that fire from an open bolt act differently.

Posted 5 days ago in Gun Safety, Shooting by Russ Chastain

When you’re shooting a fully automatic firearm and it jams–and that’s not uncommon at all–what do you do? If you’re familiar with more traditional firearms, the methods you’re used to using may very well not work.

In this video, hickok45 demonstrates the how and why, showing clearly that the methods we use to clear semi-autos can easily lead to unintentional discharges…

Good bit of safety education.

I wouldn't allow any bolt to slam shut without the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Or close an action for that matter.

Firing pins have been known to get stuck in the deployed position, meaning the action of closing the bold can discharge a round.

But as the man points out, with the type of action in question it's inevitable.
