    Here's a picture. Note the attached metal tab where the C2 inscribed the serial number on this "machine gun".

    I don't think that's right . . . most if not all semi-autos have a disconnector so that pulling the trigger won't fire the gun unless the bolt IS closed. It would take some sort of malfunction (wear, broken part, etc.) to fire the gun in an out-of-battery condition by means of a trigger pull.

    I wanted to post this story, but decided to do a search on it thinking it might have already been posted.

    Anyways.

    Just a reminder and a bump
