Several years ago I had a similar thing happen and a friend of mine shot a hole in the bedroom wall. I dropped the mag, cycled the bolt but I failed to look into the chamber. I told my buddy to try out the trigger and it went BANG!!!

Fortunately the round went out into the back canyon behind my house.

Still scares the sh¡t out of whoever is around none the less....especially the one pulling the trigger.

That's the strange part. The cat damn near teleported out of the room. The old dog, who has never heard a gun go off? And he's over 12? He jerked his head up, looked around, and went back to sleep!

I'd be pretty pissed if a bullet whizzed past my head too. Lol

What did your door look like afterwards? Was it fixable?

Glad nobody was hurt, also.

We had an issue here a while back. I had taken in a Jennings 9mm and one of my sons wanted it as he needed a replacement pistol and he was cash poor. I reluctantly handed it over as I had heard a few problem areas with them, but he usually is the careful sort so I felt he would be ok with it until he could get better. He stuck it in a shoulder rig he had, but didn't adjust it fully. He had one in the pipe unbeknownst to me and leaned over in my office with me, his younger brother, and the wife there. The gun slipped out of the rig and hit the ground butt first. BANG!! We all about crapped ourselves and started looking for blood. Thank God, nobody got hit. There was a hole in the ductwork above and it did kill two of my wife's denim shirts in the closet above the office. She was pissed.

Another lesson learned. He got rid of the Jennings shortly thereafter.

Ben, thank you for your honesty in this post and reading posts like this teach me to check and double check. I am terrified of this happening to me. I am so glad no one got hurt and that the gun was pointed in a safe direction. You learned a lesson the hard way. I bet you never have that happen again. I'm glad no one was hurt. But one last thing........why the heck did you have to do that in front of an 'anti-gunner'?
