Had a Fobus holster carrying a week old Charles Daly while riding my four wheeler in some off road ruts that trucks made. Needless to say after about an hour of digging around in knee deep mud I found my 1911

My heart dopped to say the least. But after an intense cleaning she fired just fine.

Had a .41 mag Blackhawk under a saddle blanket on the front seat of my truck. Someone went to get in, pulled the saddle blanket out and the gun fell on the concrete. Scratched up the top of the rear sight.

Could not have said it better! In fact I take into consideration "drop survival" as a purchasing consideration.
Real life is hard.

Yup, gravity is a b!tch! When I was a pup (many moons ago), me and my Brother-inlaw were out hunting birds, I slipped and fell right on top of my wards western 12Gau pump, broke the butt of the stock right off! Took it to wood shop at high school a few days later and screwed, pinned and glued it. I still have it, it has worked fine since, just has a little battle scar!

Can you imagine going to school carrying a shotgun stock today?

Don't know if this qualifies as a "drop", but it damn sure did qualify as a "heart in throat" moment.

Working as an LEO, my regular service revolver (a 4 inch K frame Smith) was in the shop. Drew a 5 inch Model 10 from the spares- meant I had to change holsters- anyone remember the swivel holsters?

Night patrol, interrupted a gent who was prying on a back door of a business. He runs down the alley. I was up for a footrace, ran him down, tackled him, he was squirming- and I reached back for my sidearm.

Wait- WHAT? I have a row of 12 cartridges- and no holster below them! WHERE IS MY GUN?

Got him cuffed, walked him back to the car- and there was my piece- in the holster, on the front seat. When I bailed, the rivet in the swivel gave way, leaving my revolver on the front seat.
