Its not centered on the firing pin. Bad habit to be in.
Buddy of mine in the army and i were on gate duty on the loneliest gate in the hawaiiain command. MPs when they get bored get stupid. I was no exception. We took to shooting pencils across the gate shack at styrofoam cups with the m9. Sergeant drives up to relieve us for a restroom break. He sees what we are doing chews us out. We start walkimg over to the restroom two blocks away. We get about half way there and there is this "BOOOM" from the gate.
We rush back and there is the sergeant with his m9 out shredded pencil everywhere and a hole in the roof...
Betterway to check take the slide off, if it has a firing pin safety press the plungerunder the frame and press the firing pin flush with frame. If it sticks out of the slide face its good to go.

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
