It seems hard to fathom but apparently it is possible.

Maybe I'm NOT QUITE ready to run off a hundred for IDPA yet?..........

AS I recall, the initial dent in the primer WAS slightly off center, which might reinforce your theory.

I think SARDGE mentioned using a consistent stroke on that lever. Guess I'd better make a few extras and plan on a few "malfunction drills" during my IDPA practice!

Irresponsible use of alcohol kills many times those killed by guns. And look what happened to PROHIBITION 100 years ago!
