I suspect that many, if not most of the forum members have experienced light primer strikes with failure to fire. I certainly have with multiple handguns, but I have not, as yet experienced a hangfire. The conventional wisdom in the event of a failure to fire seems to be to keep the handgun pointed down range on target for 30 seconds in case of delayed primer ignition. I am curious as to how many have experienced a hangfire, and for those who have, how much time elapsed between the primer strike and ignition? If you have experienced a hangfire was it with factory ammunition and do you recall what type of primer was involved? Finally, in the event of a failure to fire, how many actually hold their handgun on target for a full 30 seconds? If you do not, how long would you do so?
