Dating myself here.
Long story, but bear with me.
My first duty carry weapon was a S&W 681, I was even issued a 6 rd. dump pouch..
I put a few hundreds round thru at the range in the few years I carried it & never had an issue.
Then one night after a bar fight, of few us were standing by as the place closed and the crowd displaced.
I see a guy go into his car about 5 yards away, he reaches down under the drivers seat and pulls out
what looked like a dark-colored, semi-auto pistol.
At this point I have no idea why he's getting his pistol or what intends to do with it.
As I'm yelling commands at him I slid behind the rear of the two cars parked in front of his, trying to find the best cover.
The guy is walking away from me at a 45 degree angle towards the bar, and he's slowly bringing the pistol up
to a low ready. After what seems like forever, (3-4 seconds, lol) he turned his head in my direction and sees me ready to
shoot him several times. Fortunately for everyone involved he drops what he's carrying & complies with my commands.
Turned out that he'd discovered the bouncer was banging his g/f & he wanted to shoot the guy..
Fast forward just a few days later, I'm at the range with a few buddies killing paper targets.
I unload the carry ammo from my S&W and load up with whatever shitty range ammo we had.
I pull the trigger once, twice, three times & finally all 6.
NOTHING, not a single round went off. Now if you've spent time at the range you know there's only a slight chance you'll get
a dead round every now and then, but NEVER all 6? So I reloaded the carry ammo and find the same thing, no rounds go off.
I take the pistol to our dept. armorer and he gives me a replacement. If I remember correctly, he told me a few days later there
was recall from S&W, something about cylinder binding.
I do remember telling him about the incident at the bar he could keep that effing gun..
