Please tell us that you did not really leave a gun un-attended with a pellet in it?
Nice ride of 100miles though.

Sorry Dean. I can't tell you that. Because it would be a lie.
I fully intended to remove the Westy tray and push ithe pellet out of the breech from the muzzle end, but by the time I got home I confess that I had forgotten to do it.
My excuse is that the safety had locked the trigger - I had immobilized the gun with the key & the gun, in its case, was in the workshop.

I hate to disappoint but I was very annoyed and frustrated.
Better after the ride though.

I do take your admonition concerning Safety to heart
