Never experienced a hang fire with a modern centerfire or rimfire arm, but have a couple times when firing cap & ball or flint weapons. Did have a black powder revolver "triple" on me once. That wakes you up.

No proof, but hang fires may have been more prevalent back during the days of the switch to cased ammo, hence the warning.
