Trap shooting with my 1100 on a farm, gun malfunctioned, went to clear the chamber, muzzle in the air and buttstock on my thigh, dropped the bolt pulling it back, gun slam fired. Firing pin was fouled up I guess. Broke it down and cleaned it. Didn't happen again. Was 300 rounds into it that day. Scared the crap out of me.

Mad props to y'all for owning mistakes...

Mine was at age 11, though not completely my fault...

Scout Jamboree, going for my marksmanship merit badge...(ya, I know, what's that?)...I sit at the bench behind some old azz blackpowder something or other...it was a long time ago...thing was longer than I was tall, I shoulder it, align my sights, go for the trigger and BOOM...not ready, knocked my 80 pound azz clear off the bench...

The RO and my d**kface stepdad were in hysterics, (apparently seeing a kid in pain was amusing to them somehow and I'm here to tell ya THAT SH*T HURT)...

Come to find out the joke was on me as they never bothered to tell me about the 'hair trigger', they wanted to see what would happen...ha ha, very funny motherfu**ers...

Wasn't my first time shooting but I made sure it was my last for a LONG time...(sans the Crossman BB gun I bought myself with my paper route money at age 13...best investment I EVER made)...not that I was afraid to shoot anymore, I didn't trust anyone not to pull that sadistic sh*t on me again...

I've heard stories like this about people playing 'tricks' on new shooters and every time I do, I want to punch the jokers right in the nards, just ain't cool...

I learned the hard way that the safety on a Jennings J-22 locks the firing pin forward (into the chamber) when I was 14.

Dad and I were shooting in the back yard, when he decided to train me on the new gun he picked up for mom. He handed it to me, had me drop the mag, clear the chambr, and put the safety on. We both forgot to take the safety off whe I put in the magazine and racked the slide. BANG! Thank god it was pointed in a safe direction.

In dad's defense, he bought the pistol used in a pawn shop with no owner's manual, so even he did not have a chance to read the warnings. The owner's manual warns of this problem, but we were still waiting on it to arive. As a result, I am now a manual and make sure that weapon is clear nazi.

I don't understand this. What does the safety being off have to do with the gun firing when the slide is racked. Remember......I still have a lot to learn.

In that gun when the safety is on it blocks or keeps the firing pin protruding into the chamber as if he was firing. When he racked it the pin hit the rim of the cartridge being loaded and it went bang.

i was about 13 or so, and my uncle and i were duck huntin in the edge of flooded timber. we both had model 1100s, but his was 12 ga and mine was 20 ga.

well, @ that time, lead was still in use, and the mallard drake was about 40 or 50 yards out....too far for the lil 20, so he hands me the 12 with nitro magnum loads in it.

i eased up next to him and he handed me the shotgun, took aim, and BLOOM, it went off. lead flew towards the drake and i flew away from him. my boots had taken suction in the gumbo mud and tripped me up. as i went down, my uncle was moving forward to see about the mallard, but unbeknownst to him, i was turned around backwards, almost laying in the water, with the 12 ga layin 1/2 under it (the water).

long story short, my trigger finger was still inside the guard and as i was tryin to get control of the shotty, it went off again, into a HUGE oak tree that was about 2 - 3 feet behind my uncle.

needless to say that it scared the $hit outta he and i both. i will never forget that good lesson in firearms handlin, and never forget the luck that was with us that day.
