NEVER TRY TO FORCE A CARTRIDGE TO CHAMBER. IF THE BOLT DOES NOT FULLY CLOSE,
REMOVE THE MAGAZINE, CLEAR THE RIFLE, AND CHECK FOR OBSTRUCTIONS, BUT DO NOTATTTEMPT TO FIRE. SERIOUS INJURY COULD RESULT. Barret Manual.
True they dont specify Hammer or Crowbar or Pick Axe but the "Do not force a cartridge" covers that imo.
I wonder if he read the manual?
