In the video below, some of the Marines training to breach doors with a shotgun are not having an easy day. And that’s in Hawaii. With no one shooting at them. I’ve experienced plenty o’ firearm malfunctions. Some my fault (improperly seated SCAR mag), some due to mechanical failure (Smith & Wesson 686 that locked up). Luckily, one of my first gun gurus trained me to SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM! In other words, keep going. As far as trusting my gun . . .
I don’t. I don’t want be surprised when my firearm fails me (or I it). I don’t want to be staring at my gun like some of these Marines thinking, hmmmm, what next Sarge? What’s next is something, anything.
How much do you trust your self-defense firearm? Do you practice malfunctions and/or have a Plan B?
