Default Oops!

I was at the range today shooting the pistols. I started shooting a SW 1911. After 4 shots the slide jammed about halfway and it seemed to be locked up. After looking it over for a few seconds I noticed that the slide lock pin was missing. Looking around everywhere I saw it laying on the ground a few feet in front of the table. I was at an indoor range so I had the range boss help me and he took it to the onsite gunsmith. He extracted the spent cartridge and inspected it. He determined that when I had cleaned it and put it back together that I had failed to put the slide lock pin in all the way. He showed me the proper way to make sure it doesn't happen again.

That's one way to keep from putting the infamous idiot mark on it. Then again, having the lock/release pin fly off the gun while shooting at the range might have some fellow shooters thinking that the designation still applies, just no tale tale mark left behind.
