Grouped Weapons, not all firing?

When I fire a group of weapons, should they not either all fire at once, or none at all? It's happened to me a few times now where I have 8 of the exact same weapon linked to single group in my battleship, and hit the fire button while getting a lock, and it fires just as they go to warp or jump through a gate, and only a few of the rounds actually shot... the rest are still loaded and didn't fire. Is there any way to prevent that?
Thanks

I noticed this happen when you group guns in stations.

In space just un-group them and group them again.

I brought this up last year, and filed a bug report.

It was such a small thing though that I kinda just got used to only grouping guns and launchers undocked and forgot it was even a thing. Totally forgot I even filed the bug report, which received the generic "thanks for reporting this" spiel and was subsequently closed.

Good to know and thanks for sharing. I usually group and load my weapons while docked.

Remove standings and insurance.

How do I unfit the guns from my pod? I want to put a cloak on it...

A little trust goes a long way. The less you use, the further you'll go.

Yes. The old fashioned way, hold shift and drag on top of the others.

it can be even worse when you reload and it only loads one gun and it tells you that the group is out of charges when you try to fire again (you see it as full clip).

I am pretty sure this bug is related to what you are experiencing, i reported it about a year ago. I even lost ships because of that since i didn't see the notification in combat and i couldn't fire.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

A million times this, especially with laser crystals (obviously the ones that degrade)
You have to unload all the crystals and load them again before you can fire again.

There is no such thing as a fair fight...

If your fighting fair you have automatically put yourself at a disadvantage.

It's about as awesome to learn that for the first time as it is to learn that you can drag modules around in your HUD, even to different racks.

Yeah, this bug is pretty horrible if it happens during a gank since every shot counts. I am not 100% sure, but I think I also encountered this after I started to group them in space, but it certainly reduces the probability of it happening.

If this happens, please file a bug report from within the client. That way we get the logs from the client.

How so? If you want more details then please read https://community.eveonline.com/news/dev-blogs/an-update-on-bug-reporting-part-3/ (and the earlier parts 1 and 2). In the third part look for "There is also the matter of the in-client bug reporting tool...".

I almost always group my guns while in station when first fitting a ship and never knew about this bug. I wonder how many times I've been gimped because of it without knowing.
