YES. This is a very serious issue, I just reported this to the @DayZ Twitter account, but now ive found this place and ca see other players have this issue.

I't actually caused an argument between me and friends because they thought i was shooting them and also other times for wasting bullets.. Until it happened to one of them, and i heard it myself and told them, they now realise its a bug..

Also, you can hear the gun shot but also, it does actually shoot (even tho you loose no bullets, because my friend has taken damage from this when its happened
