    This is excerpted from a safety "reminder" from my shooting club's monthly newsletter. It's not very explanatory, but having never heard of such a thing, I was wondering if anyone else here had:

    "In over 30+ years of shooting that was not the first time I had heard about it. Now this is the third time I have heard of a loaded round being set off by the extractor on a Model 1911. I actually witnessed this in person a few years ago.
    The best explanation I have received is that the loaded round falls off the extractor, rolls around such that the ejector can strike the primer and set the round off."
