I was at the range and I heard an odd report.
Better than making the mistake the other way around and somehow getting it to fire.
I took a Marine buddy to the range to shoot my G20. I was shooting my USP40. After about 20 minutes, I realized he was shooting 40S&W through my G20 instead of the boxes of 10mm I handed to him.
I was at the range with my firend. He was shooting his S&W Sigma 9mm while I brought my G26 and G22. He fired his first box of 9mm no problem then his gun started malfunctioning with the 2nd box. He didn't know what was wrong, so when I finished up all my 9mm ammo I handed him my G26 so he could still keep shooting. Guess what... my flawless performing G26 was mafunctioning too when he tried it. I had him hand it back to me to check out. Turns out his 2nd box of 9mm wasn't 9mm at all. It was .380 and he didn't notice when he was loading. I noticed right away when I cleared and dropped the mag. First thing I thought, those rounds look wierd. That's when I realized immediately it was .380. The guy at Wal-Mart handed him .380 without realizing it. Kind of scary that it made it through two sets of other hands before it got to me to figure out the problem.
What is that? 9 through a 10?

shooting a 9mm bullet through his 10mm Glock
Aren't we supposed to check ammo BEFORE we load it?
Okay. I brought a friend shooting and while I was at my bag to get him some more ammo for my 26 I noticed he was loading mags. I went to see what he was loading, since he was out of 9mm and he was loading it with 9mak. Not sure if it would have chambered or not, but I'm glad I caught it.
You would think. We actually had a guy in basic training years ago force rounds in an M16 mag backwards. He joined the Army to be a Chaplain's Assistant, so... bless his heart.
9mm through a 40. I even hit the plate that I was shooting at but it didn't cycle the slide. I had accidentally thrown a batch of 9's in my 40 bin. I realized it right away and picked through them but I obviously missed a few. After this happened I watched as I loaded up the mags and found a couple more rounds. You can see one 9mm round mixed with the 40's in the upper left corner of the red bin.
Our gun club has hunter sight in days just before every deer season. One year I was trying to get this guy on paper and his rifle was shooting all over the place. Upon closer inspection the problem was that he was shooting 270 Winchester rounds through his 30-06.
Ah, I wondered why you posted that pic. I missed it at first.
So did I.
Did anyone get BTF?
I try to not to take more than one handgun caliber to the range at any one time unless it's clearly a revolver caliber vs a pistol caliber. 9 and 40 at the same time is a definite no no.
I never take ammo out of the factory boxes until ready to shoot. If I have bulk and know I won't take the whole box, I either load mags up first or put them in leftover boxes of the same caliber.
That right there is a nightmare of mine.

Sometimes the best thing to say is... oops
The cost difference when it was rung up should have been a giveaway.
That's a fired .40 Luger case.....
Here's some more:
Et tu Butch?
I shot my round in my 24 with the Storm Lake barrel.
Nope, but I've seen it done numerous times....once with disastrous results!
I found this on the ground at the range the day after it happened:
