A Close Call

One of The Firearms Blog authors penned a short article about some light primmer strikes he discovered when testing a .40 S&W Glock that he had converted to 9 mm while he was manually ejecting cartridges as part of a function test. The strikes to the primers were not from the hammer but from the ejector. He has photographs of the cartridges, and looking at some of the dents, it looks like he was fortunate to have been using Tula ammo, which has harder primers, than some of the softer U.S. commercial primers.

So, question to the readers: if one of the cartridges had gone off, would it have been an accidental discharge, or negligent discharge?
