Default Broken firing pin

Had my first ever firing pin break on Tuesday. Took my SA M1A out to the range and on the 32nd round, clic. Ejected the round and no indent at all. Got the rifle home and disassembled the bolt. The tip of the pin was gone. Lucky I had a spare and changed it in a few minutes. Does this happen often or is it a once in a great while occurence. Thanks, Eddie
