After doubling on drake mallards and missing a third, I put the gun down and sent the dog for the retrieves. As soon as he got back with the last bird, a nice flock of mallards started to set in the dekes, I dropped the flopper gates and locked on a drake, pulled the trigger, nothing, pulled again, nothing. Looked at the gun and the bolt was open and the gun was empty, forgot to reload. When will those S.O.B's at Remington make a Versamax that loads itself. Absolutely love this gun.
