The first time you take anything apart it can get a wee bit hairy. Modern guns, especially target guns have tight tolerances and can be a chore to take apart. One piece guide rods increase the level of difficulty. I have to use a barrel wrench to deal w mine and I highly recommend them.

This episode will keep him humble enough - no need to bring it up every time he forgets to take out the trash.

I think he has learned his lesson. My cousin was actually the one who got the slide stuck.

You w not be the first, people who work in gunshops often live for those moments to shine and probably w have provided additional tips & tricks to boot.

One exception, a store owner told me he used to charge Ruger MK I & II owners $30 to teach them how to reassemble their guns. There is a trick to it as w most guns. (Not sure if he was serious or just joking ) Possible exception being the XDM from Springfield - that thing is SO simple it's almost soldier proof.
