Bad jam
 
I was just at the range and my gun jammed.I have a S&W 22a.What happend was I pit a mag in and cocked it and the gun wouldnt fire our let me pull the rack back to clear.A worker at the range was nice enough to help.He took the gun into the shop and cleared it then brought it back to me. my question is what did he do so I know for next time?

Thought it was a food recall for a minute there.

I wonder if he didn't just apply more force than would be pleasing to watch using a rubber mallet?

Anything you have to do to get it out. Just keep it pointed down range and keep everything away from the muzzle and eyes and ears on. Basically, use common sense and be aware of every finger and where it is in relation to the muzzle. I have had some pretty bad jams before too, some that just require a few strong hits.

I couldnt pull the rack back at all it was in the closed position

Did you drop the mag? Honestly that's the first thing you should do, not only is it safest, but it's also most productive in clearing a jam. Other than that, force is key!

yes I drop the mag as soon as a gun jams.Is it safe to disassemble if the rack wont move?

That just doesn't make sense to me. Did you shine a light into the mag well? You can keep the muzzle pointed down range, just flip upside down and take a peak... having eyes on the problem helps to understand what is needed to correct it.

Stupid question, are you sure your safety was off? Many safeties are a slide lock function.
