I'd agree that complacency is the worst enemy for experienced shooters. We need to take that extra second to just pause and remind ourselves of the basics.

GOOD POST Makes a lot of sense to be safe at all time when dealing with firearms.We don't need the publicity.....

1.) The weapon should not have been loaded if intent to sell.

2.) who ever dropped the magazine evently didn't know that one round would stay in chamber.( or knew but didn't think.)

3). The trigger should never had been pulled in a crowded area.


Was this an AD or ND., what are your take on this. This is realy a true story and weapons cannot be sold there anymore. The weapon should have been pointed in a safe direction at all time.
What a terrible tragedy.

It's that one in the chamber that get's ya every time . This was caused by a stack-up of errors . Maybe it wouldn't have happened if, in some past encounter, someone had been impolite enough to correct that man's gun handling habits .

It was some years ago.....I had a Ruger P95 DC. I was busy working on some spread sheets, and decided to unload the mag to let the spring relax. (old school, I know) I was in a bit of a hurry, trying to do too many things at once, I suppose. Reloaded the mag with one in the chamber....As always, I pointed it in a safe direction, (at the bed) and hit the de-cocking lever. (or so I thought.) Do any of you know what a 9mm sounds like in a closed room, with no ear protection? Damn!....I shot a hole in my mattress, and destroyed a VCR player underneath the bed. I later, while at an unattended outdoor shooting range, tried to duplicate what had happened. I must have hit the de-cocking lever about 200 times, trying to get the weapon to fire. It never happened. In retrospect, I, in all likely hood, pulled the trigger, instead of the de-cocking lever. It is the only other explanation there is. I've been around guns for more than 40 years, and had NEVER had a ND. I'm living proof that accidents CAN happen.
