I think he tried to dry fire before and had to rack it to reset the trigger...

He either didn't notice the mag (w/o mag the slide wouldn't lock open) or doesn't realize it should have locked open.

Yep, that is one of the ways the gun in the video could have been loaded. (and my guess as to what happened, as some sort of sick joke)

Re: Why You Should Always Check The Firearm

Not only did the clerk not clear it- there was clearly a loaded a mag in the gun. :shock: I wonder if the tape goes back far enough to see who loaded the gun?

I often get a funny look from a clerk when I re-check a gun he just cleared before handing it to me. Can't help it, I've had an "unloaded" gun handed to me before - only to check and find it loaded.
