February Fail: Lessons learned

Let the above video be a lesson to us all.  You cannot throw your semi-auto shotgun into the case for three months and then shoot it dirty and unlubed in 25 degree weather and expect it to run 100%.  The same goes for your AR-15. Furthermore, when changing major components on your rifle (in my case the barrel), it is advisable to test fire more than 5 rounds of the ammo you plan to compete with on the coming weekend to ensure reliable function, especially if the ammunition in question was manufactured in a gulag in eastern Europe.   A little bit of oil and a quarter turn on my gas block fixed all of my problems, but not before I managed to record this embarrassing video.  Enjoy.
