    This could be a good/educational thread as long as who feel they are perfect don't screw it up. We all should be able to admit we've done dumb stuff.

    You might want to rename the thread to "share your negligent discharge stories" Accidental discharges are things like "I set my gun on the shelf of my safe and the internal safety failed causing my gun to fire and put a hole in my safe and wall." Having a finger in the triggerguard is not accidental.

    I've had one negligent discharge with a gun, and it scared me so bad that I'm a bit paranoid with guns now (in a healthy way). I killed our TV shortly after I bought my HS2000 (that tells you how long ago it was). I had loaded the gun the night before, and decided to practice field stripping the gun the next day. I locked the slide back but forgot to take the magazine out. After flipping the takedown lever, I dropped the slide (thus chambering another round), took aim at the television in the corner of the house, and pulled the trigger. Needless to say the ringing in my ears was a surprise, and it took me a second to figure out why Danny DeVito disappeared from my TV screen (how did that hole get there?). I felt very sick after that.

    No. Not everyone. There is nothing funny about an AD/ND. People die from them. People are maimed from them. People are scarred for life (not just physically either).

    ETA: I sincerely hope you are really not that flippant about AD/NDs. If you are that flippant about it, I sincerely hope you are not a CWP/CHP/CHL holder that carries on a regular basis. Safety should be paramount in everything a person does when doing anything with any kind of weapon.

    this

    Agree ^^^^

    Look, IM not trying to be harsh, but marginalizing negligent discharges is a bad idea,

    it's NOT ok

    It's NOT funny, ever

    It is ALWAYS an error,
    It is ALWAYS a serious shooter mistake to be taken seriously and learned from

    God forbid, if ANY shooter ever has two of them, he/she should never shoot again as far as Im concerned
