Nope..but I own a few that had never been fired and ONLY dropped once...

Seriously though, yes, I dropped my 629 while putting it in my safe. Luckilly, I had just brought home a 3/4 walk off mat and installed it in my garage/safe/workbench are for just such an event...

No damage.

Tack

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I dropped my AK once. Then I remembered it was a AK. You could probably run over it , shoot it and it would still fire.

I dropped my GLOCK and scratched close to the front sight. I thought I was going to cry!!!. That's the only time I have dropped any of my guns.

Haven't dropped one yet but when I first started carrying I was terrified of dropping it in the crapper haha. Have a better holster now and not so worried about it.

This is a true story I'm about to tell y'all.

Well one day my uncle use to work at a car stereo shop building woofers boxes and doing installs.

So he gets tired and decide he wants to head home early. Well he kelt an ak47 in his trunk

( because in the early 90's someone pull up on side of him on the highway and started shooting at him. He also had a glock 17 gen 1).

So he stop by a store and got a couple of items his wife requested. Finally made it home and took the item in the house then came back for his ak.

Well he set it on his trunk. It slided off and hit the ground and started firing at him, shot everything in the mag. He ran, jumping on cars tryna get away from it.

When it stop he had hole's in his garage door,side of his car, neighbor car lol but not one bullet touch him

Sold it the next day

I can understand one or two rounds going off if you drop a gun, but an entire magazine? How the hell does that happen? Was something wrong with the sear, or was it just a slam fire on an epic level? Glad he wasn't hurt.

That's one of my biggest fears. I actually have a plan in place. My gun is to big to fit in the hole (yeah, I've heard that one), so I intend to go ahead and flush, and hope that clears out enough filth so I can somewhat comfortably retrieve it.
