    Nothing but a rant, my man. I slip sometimes. Those laws are getting pure overtime. Whether in a golf cart or standing, walking around.

    Tax payer overtime. Get it while it's hot.

    Although I do seem to remember having once bought either a complete rifle, or just the action with a bullet stuck in it either at a gun show or in the vicinity. Vice grips, dowel, and a hammer took care of it.

    If it comes with a discount. I don't care much to which is stuck in the barrel.

    $$$. Tap that turd out the barrel and drive on.

    If you can see the primer from the casing you tried to fire, how can thier be a live round in the barrel? By round do you mean there is a bullet in the bore? Round or cartridge isn't the same thing as a bullet.

    If it is a bullet in the bore, take your barrel off and tap it out from the muzzle end with a wooden dowel. That's a squib, congrats for not being stupid and trying to rack into it and keep shooting. Saved a blown up gun. Take pictures, ask for a refund, and bring it to the manufacturer's attention.

    If the cartridge is stuck in the chamber, rack it out by hand or use pressure on a share object against the slide as described here already.

    A "squib rod" is what most of us use. It's a lot like a black powder ball starter with a short rod and a ball at the end. The latest squib rods I've seen were in the Dillon catalog.

    I purchased a cartridge gauge for almost everything that I fire. Strangely, I bought a box of .300 Blackout ammo at Academy and one of those factory rounds had a tight fit and refused to enter the 300BLK die. I'm glad that I found that problem early!

    Don't do your final inspection on the firing line. It just takes a minute to check a whole box of ammo to make sure that the rounds chamber correctly, before you get to the range!

    I keep a short dowel rod in one of my range bags just for squibs since my brother's M&P .45 experienced a couple when he first started reloading. We had hell clearing a .22 once when the guy (my uncle) forgot to remove the bore sight (not really a squib but a mess regardless).

    About 10 years ago, I traded for an SKS rifle for some motorcycle leathers that shrunk (snicker). I took the rifle and it knocked around the living room untouched for a long time. To my horror, I checked it much later and found it was fully loaded and ready to fire. Boy.....did I learn a lesson!
