Unless you get a squib load, which is where the load is too weak to shoot the projectile (bullet) out of the barrel, and it gets start, if you have a malfunction pulling the trigger won't do anything. It won't explode, just nothing will happen.
Squib loads are dangerous, because you'll have a bullet stuck in the barrel and if you shoot again, well, bad ju-ju. However, if you're shooting ammo you bought in a store from a major manufacturer, that prolly won't happen.
