Re: Technical question re: old load handgun kept in storage
Interesting, thank you so much!
This is quite helpful; it gives me a lot to mull over ... and probably some changes to make (unless, for the purposes of my story, the reason it 'clicks' at first but doesn't fire isn't because there's anything wrong with it but just because it isn't fully loaded). Or maybe I could incorporate a plugged-barrel scenario in some way.
By being wet/rusted - do you mean because of humidity? The location of my novel is Poughkeepsie, NY ... so, I guess more research into weather conditions is in order to determine if humidity would play a factor as well.
