Figured I'd ask here and not get flamed to death on the ruger forum
I haven't been able to take my Sr22 to the range very much due to ammunition shortages and I don't want to try this indoors until I know my gun inside and out.
Anyways, i was at the range and trying to learn every aspect of gun malfunction just in case. So I put a round in the chamber (entire round inside the barrel), took out the mag, made sure it was empty and put back in so it was able to be fired still. (gun won't fire if no mag in)
I then tried to take the live round out of the barrel by racking the slide, nothing happened. I literally had to tilt the gun back and use my fingernail to get the round out. That can't be right? Gun was also on safety as I didnt want the hammer to drop accidentally and a live round go off unexepectedly.
So if I've got a live round in the end of the barrel, how do i get it to eject completely? I need to know this as I plan to have this as a CCW once I get my license and learn everything I can about this pistol.
Say I've got 9 in the mag and one in the chamber, how do i unload the thing completely when i get home? I was under the impression, take out mag, then rack slide and that last round will eject onto the ground/bed/etc.....??
Thanks for all your help guys, shooting is fun!
