So, I went to the range today with a couple buddies. Now, its not the best practice but whenever it has been at least 6 months I will take my Home and Personal Defense pistols and rotate ammo. I take my Springfield XDM-9mm from the bed side drawer just as it is, I don't unloaded it, same with my little Kimber Micro .380. Put them SAFTLEY into my range bag and head out.

I get to range, put my target out, take the Springer out, turn the laser on, point at target and shoot, just as I would if a bad guy were trying to do me harm.

"CLICK" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DAMMMMM, not what you want when a bad guy is about to kill you. I racked the round out and proceeded to finish the magazine into the target with no further problems. I bend down, locate the misfired round. Top off another mag with it, put gun into battery, aim, CLICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ammo is Barnes FACTORY TAC-XPD ammo, less than a year old.

So what should I do besides thank God, it was practice??? Here are some pictures

Kind of reminds us to practice round clearing drills, too. Sometimes it sounds overboard but it could be the difference one day.

Shoot up the mag in a defensive pistol at least once a month. Just guessing oil may have seeped in over time.

I sent this to Barnes to see if they want to see the round.

Once, loaded mag, inserted into gun, dropped slide, Press check and knock it with the back of my hand to make sure it was in battery.

Do you think there is an ammo manufacturer in existence that has never produced a dud before?

Hmm. It's probably God punishing you for not finishing that chore list before you went shooting.

If it were me I would finish that chore list then promptly switch to Gold Dots or HST's.

To be clear, this is Barnes ammo not Barnes bullets.
