I have never experienced a hang fire and I will be scared to death if I ever do.
If you know its a live round and you get click instead of boom, the proper procedure is to keep the gun pointed at the target for 45 seconds hangfires generally go off within 20-30 seconds at worst. Once your sure the round is inert, remove it from the gun, remove all other ammo safe the gun, look down the bore from the breach to insure it was a squib lodging a bullet in the bore. If clear reload keep shooting.
Ive personally witnessed a guy squib a ruger gp100 158grn 357mag then fite the next five all 6 bullets stayed in the barrel...
