while cutting a normal, small piece of wood (2×1x20) today, the blade caught on something, shot straight up, made a really loud "THWANNGGG" and a piece of wood I wasn't cutting shot into the air, and passed me. A humbling moment. But now when I bring the arm down it's not in the slot. Which is weird, because the entire motor casing, handle, saw blade shifted completely horizontally about 1/8". Is this common, or is there a common solution to fix this?

Never heard of something like this.

There are folks on here that are experts on miter saws, but I would think they are going to need some pictures and additional info (make, model of saw, etc.) to help you figure this out.

lol, yeah, that didn't even occur to me and my father's a mechanic, always getting the calls "so my car's making a hiss, what do you think?". The only info I have right now is it's a delta 12", I'll post a picture in the morning

That looks like it needs the 90° to be re-adjusted,I would look at the manual and find out how to calibrate for 90° and 45° tilt ,if that's the problem,it is very easy to do.
I would also check the fence and make sure is not bent,put a straight edge against it,there should be no gap.
