Identifying firearm malfunctions is easy enough after the fact, but can you correctly call these as they happen? Not only is it a useful skill to have, but being able to identify certain malfunctions instantly can save lives—and that’s no hyperbole. Last month we posted a video of a range officer spotting a dangerous malfunction at the very last second. In that case, the shooter had encountered a squib and had already racked another round into the chamber. Had the range officer been any slower, the gun would have fired and likely suffered a catastrophic malfunction, possibly resulting in injuries to the shooter.

This quiz should be pretty easy if you know your malfunctions—and there’s two “easy” questions to keep your spirits up. Good luck!
