The shooter isn't the issue...this is.

From Wikipedia;

Bryco Arms declared bankruptcy in 2003 as a result of losing a lawsuit filed in Oakland, California and which resulted in a jury award of a record $24 million judgment against Bryco Arms. The lawsuit stemmed from an injury to a then 7-year old boy named Brandon Maxfield received from a 20-year old family friend who was attempting to unload the 380 ACP version of the Bryco Arms Model 38. The gun discharged while the 20-year old was attempting to clear the chamber, the gun inadvertently pointed at Maxfield.[1] The ensuing negligent discharge paralyzed Brandon Maxfield from the neck down. The plaintiffs claimed that due to a design defect, the gun had a cartridge feed problem, made evident when the safety was on and the user pulled back the slide to check the chamber or load a cartridge into the chamber. Rather than re-design the gun to correct the jamming problem, the design of the gun was altered to require that the safety be placed in the fire position when checking the chamber or chambering a cartridge, which hid the problem from the user.

i cant check the chamber when the safety is on. idk why but thats how it is. the slide locks into place when the safety is on. is that one of the remodeled ones? and i traded a broken marlin 795 for it. the marlin was a piece... it jammed every clip when clean and when it was dirty it plain out would not fire. but the bryco seems like a good deal because it goes boom every time. they are made for fmj standard velocity. i fired hollow points +P and it functioned without a jam...
