Dropped my 1911 on the pavement once. Was walking from my car to my house with my hands full and had it in my pocket. Slipped out after two steps. Dented the rear sights, and now they're so loose that they move when I shoot

I'll bet a gunsmith can fix that for you.

Hmm I didn't even think about that. I was just going to get a new sight. But I'm glad you told me that because the only sights I could find wouldn't really match the gun, and I want to keep it as authentic as possible. Plus I'm sure getting them fixed would be cheaper.

Lol. I don't really throw my guns around. But I do beat up the Glocks at the range n don't clean them. They just keep going. The sig I clean more often just because I spent a lot more money on it. I've only dropped my M9 when I had it. And that's because I took it apart and the recoil spring shot out and freaked me out. Put a dent in my tv with it. Damn Berettas.

I took out my old man`s Remington Speedmaster .22 once without him knowing. Tripped on a root walking threw the woods and hit the stock on a stump. Broke the bottom corner off the stock, chunk was about 1". Few years later he got me a Fieldmaster for my birthday, took the stock off mine and gave me his. Funny how the color/grain of the wood matched his gun so well........

I have dropped several times. After I do a trigger job I will cock the firearm EMPTY and slam it on a rug or carpet harder than if it dropped to make sure it will not accidentally discharged. Number 1 IF YOU DROP IT LET IT FALL. If you try to catch it you can accidentally pull the trigger. I have a good friend that can show you the hole in his leg.

QFT. I don't know if there's actually been a study done, but personally,I feel it's safer to let it hit the pavement than to fumble around with it like a drunken prom date trying to undo a bra with 40 hooks in the dark.

I dropped my .44, it went off and the bullet hit me in the head.

Poor bullet, the jacketing stripped off, it broke in half,

went flat as a pancake, and the grey fell off the lead!

(yea-yea, true story)
