Thank you very much!! I learned a lot right there. I would like to buy a .22 pistol but I am a little afraid of malfunctions. I'm not sure I would know what to do. This video helped me a lot.

It reminded me of a situation at work.........

I work with a lot of instrumentation and inevitably we are required to troubleshoot them and get them running again quite often. There is a woman who works second shift and our shifts overlap by a couple hours. If we are ever troubleshooting together I like to do whatever it takes to get the instrument up and running again. Once it's working, I'm on to the next duty. She wants to know why it stopped running, what caused it, how did what we did fix it, etc. I laugh and tell her 'You think about that and try to reason it out. I don't care what happened, all I know is it's working again and I'm happy.' Kind of like that guy and the jammed guns.

IMO, It is good to know how to clear jams and get functional again.
BUT, if the jams continue, then troubleshoot and correct the cause.
