    True, the worst part is that with the glock thing you have to violate the 4 rules, not really so much with what happened to this guy.

    Ouch man, he was extremely lucky to have glasses on. Both eyes would have been irreperably damaged if he took all that unburnt powder to the eyes.

    The bullet wouldn't go in properly 2 times, so I took a hammer and hit it repeatedly thinking it would go right in. DUUUURRRRRR

    We all feed live rounds... I wouldn't try to jam a stuck round into battery though.

    I don't think it's a matter of a danger of feeding live rounds, i think it's a matter of knowing when something is wrong. This guy apparently did not. If it doesn't lock up when you release the bolt, the somthing isn't right. I've test fed ak ammo through my ak to make sure my SG mags were working right. I have a snap cap, and used that first, then used live rounds to make sure it fed more than one. Smart? prolly not the smartest, but it's not like i was kicking the bolt closed with a stuck firing pin.

    I disagree, anytime you're dealing with live rounds theres a chance you're going to set one off without forcing anything. More than a few people have gotten such surprises from gummed up firing pins on their SKS rifles with nothing more than the spring pulling it closed.

    Thats not to say theres not a need for it, but we should all remember the 4 rules at all times being especially aware of our backstop, and wear eye protection when tinkering with explosives and springs.

    well, in my defense, i did test it first with a snap cap, and it slammed home just fine without a hangup. I was inside by house, and the muzzle was pointed at the garound.... and if i remember correctly, i don't think i actually let the bolt slam home on the live rounds, pretty sure i rode each of them down to make sure they would eject properly.

    Um, this would've happened at the range as well. There is no difference betwixt the two locations as far as the outcome goes. Now, hammering a round into battery isn't all that bright, but mainly due to the fact that if you hammer it in there and DON'T expect to fire it, how the hell are you going to get it back out?
