I've never had anything that weird happen when shooting.
I had only been shooting 45acp's that day!
Further checking showed that the obstruction in the chamber was a fired case, inserted backwards into the chamber. The only thing we could figure was that the previous round had fired normally, the case ejected straight up (normal for an Automag), then the recoiling gun caught up with the case and the case flew into the chamber.
(In case you are not aware of the .44 Automag cartridge, it is simply a rimless .44 Magnum, so it will fit into the chamber either way. Still, the incident was so weird that I have never forgotten it.)
That is word for word what he told me too, lol!
My wife had one eject straight up and land behind the lens of her eyeglasses burning her eyelid! Good thing she blinked
That has happened to me before too. OUCH!
I've had one go down my shirt collar and get wedged on my collar bone. Burned me good.
Once at an indoor range I had a shell from an adjacent lane find its way completely around the partition separating us, bounce off the ceiling, curl underneath the bill of my baseball cap, and find a way around my wrap-around safety glasses until finally coming to rest beneath my left eye. I wear that little semicircular burn scar with pride.
I was shooting with a buddy. We were both shooting a lot of rounds at a moving target when his gun malfunctioned with a stove pipe. He had a Blazer aluminum case stove pipe. The problem was, he was shooting Federal brass cased ammo. I was shooting the Blazer.
I think that counts as a Type IX malfunction, LOL.
It was weird enough that I'll always remember it.
Nope, not buying it; five-sevens don't throw their brass that far
(seriously, mine politely places it about 6ft directly to my right in a neat 3ft wide pile)
One day we were out shooting. I was doing something down on the rifle end of the line. Probably fiddling with a micro-adjuster for the sight on a 1803. All of a sudden, I notice a commotion down the line. Bunch of hopping and twisting and being suddenly and very completely topless. With an excellent use of sailor vernacular about the 9mm casing which had gone cleavage diving.
Things were sorted back out, which was apt as more poepl had showed up to shoot.
