    What happened is what the eggheads call an ID-10-Tango error.

    This occurs when the 2% rule is blatantly violated as it appears to have been in this case.

    The only remedy is to take an 18-ounce ball-peen hammer and apply it vigorously to the temples of both you and your friend until such time as you are either both smarter, or unconscious, or both.

    Also, take the gun to a gunsmith before you hurt yourselves.

    "Pressed the button" did you? Now we're screwed.


    If I told you to use the edge of a table and retract the cocking piece until you can engage the safety, would you know what I was talking about? And could you do it without losing a bit of finger in the process?
