We personally don’t want to experience malfunctions with our firearms, but if we do, most of us know how to properly clear them.
What’s acceptable, though, is a malfunction for the bad guy’s firearm, both giving the chance for the target to make an escape or better yet, defend themselves with an operating firearm of their own.
There are two videos below that show these malfunctions happening, the first of which is the difficult one to watch. Imagine being the kind of scum that tries to do this.
In either of these cases, had a good guy or gal been armed an on location, it would have been easy pickings to take out the bad guy. Is a guy with a malfunctioning firearm still a deadly threat? ABSOLUTELY.
