Never considered this possibility. Now I've got something new to worry about if my Colt Walker .44 doesn't fire when the cap does... Had hangfires on my smokepole. It's kind of like holdin a Siamese cat by the tail. You gotta let go sooner or later and then wait to see what it's gonna do.

Tomahawks use a rocket to get out of the vertical launchers. The rocket went off but the missile did not leave. I was in combat watching on the monitor. The wall of flame was 30 or 40 feet high and 20 feet wide. The deluge system ran for 45 minutes before things cooled off enough to shut off. Training kicks in in the heat of the moment. I was shaking after though for sure.
