    Without looking at the gun, before you do anything, make sure there is not a piece of shot under an extractor. It will be squeezed so flat it will be nearly invisible.

    I cannot imagine a shell being "wanged" into the chamber hard enough to upset the lug.

    Never loan a gun and let it out of your site ... loan your wife and let her out of your site but never your gun. You almost always want to be sure nothing bad happens to the gun but ... well ... never loan a gun and let it out of your site.

    I would also suggest looking under the ejector heads for debris, and also throughout the rest of the gun. It's highly unlikely there was so much pressure at closing the gun with the tight round to push the bbl forward.
