I'm SO fortunate to live in a place where I don't remotely need to have a loaded gun for HD or even SD. So I keep my guns in pieces in my bag; bolt out, slide and magazines emptied & removed, etc. They come together at the range and stay apart after I clean them there.

I've only handled other guns in stores that were given to me by clerks who knew what they were doing when I didn't. I'll have to remember to check guns myself should I have an informal opportunity to examine a gun. So far it's all still new to me that I'm not likely to forget now.

The morale of the story -- always check one's weapon routinely. I needed to hear that, as I assume too much about my own Mossberg 590A1. I, too, forgot it had a shell in it one time.

I was accidentally shot in my leg point blank with a 20 gauge shotgun when i was 13 years old by a friend of mine while we were rabbit hunting . He saw a rabbit and got to excited and tripped and fell and zapped me. What really sucked was i was 2 miles from home and this happened in 1986 before we had cell phones so I had to walk all the way back home. After multiple surgeries and skin grafts everything worked out alright and I was able to join the Army when I graduated from high school.To this day I will not go hunting with other people except my son. My 2 main rules always check a firearm to see if it's loaded and always point it in a safe direction.

The only reason I'm laughing so hard is I've done this myself.
(and I finished the cup, spray and all)

Seriously, and IMHO, this can't be stressed enough,

you unloaded the gun, as soon as you picked it up.

This is what prevents the ADs and NDs. I've done it myself,

thinking, " hmmm, I don't recall this gun being loaded".

Assume all guns are loaded. Then unload them.
