    It saddens me to no end to admit that the ONE firearms safety infraction I've committed during my 43 years on this planet was the exact same thing. I was a t a hunting lodge and picked up what I thought was my Remington 1100 16 gauge, brought it to the sporting clays course,loaded it, and fired.

    Unfortunately, I had picked up someone else's *12* gauge Remington 1100.

    When I fired it, it made a horrible sound. I notified the owner, who essentially said "ah, no big deal".

    I still have nightmares about it, and it's made me even more safety aware.

    Safety first.



    Note: Edited for details.

    thats the reason i dont share my toys with the unworthy :o
    Call me anal with my firearms but i take VERY good care of all my stuff and only allow people i KNOW are capable of safely and carefully using my stuff to do so. I am not as tolerant as you are my friend. I probably woulda dealt a beating to somebody who did that to my gun....better man than i...

    Have to keep an eye on any n00b buddies you bring with you one time I took a first time shooter to the range i was busy messing with another gun when he asked me to helpem get the mag in a rifle, he was trying to put a 7.62 mag in my SAR2 :mamoru: I've also heard stories about people putting the wrong caliber glock mags in and getting one shot off.

    damn that's pretty bad, my cousin shot a few .270's through a .30-06, but they at least share the same case.

    akm and any varients with 47 = 7.62, M stands for modernized which would include most commercially available stamped ak's, anything with 74 = 5.45, S and U is used on both types indicates its a folder.
    ak103 is 7.62, the rest of the 1xx series is 5.45 or 5.56 dont remember which is what off the top of my head.

    oh... ok. it looks like 101 and 102 are the full length and short length 5.56 ones respectively.

    but what's the difference between say a 47m and 103, which are both 7.62?

    Doof!!!!

    I had a problem like that when a P7 I used to own headspaced and blew out the back of the brass. One shot, poof...lots of little parts fell out (extractor).

    H&K reliability...not if you ask me :) It was the 7th round in a new gun.

    103 has a 90 degree gas block, polymer furniture or triangle folder, ak74 style brake.

    I've put Hundreds of rounds through my P7M8 (I got it in 1987), and I've never had a stoppage of any type. Wish I could say the same about every other handgun I've owned.
