At least you had the target in a safe direction and no one was hurt.

I have been around firearms quite a bit in my time and so far no AD's to report but this is a reminder to us all you can never let your guard down.

I have witnessed one at the range. Luckily muzzle discipline meant no one was hurt. Probably the most important of all the safety rules on my opinion.

Have you ever been to a gun show when a gun was fired? The almost instant silence and everyone freezes where they stand. It is the most scarey of all gun accidents.

An accidental discharge got me a shotgun wedding when I was a teenager. I learned something from that. Had it to do over again would have left the "pig" in the pen and paid more attention to what I'd been taught about such things. Like instead, go chop some firewood or jog a mile or two.

I agree. I am the product of such a "negligent discharge". My momma was a 15-year-old high school girl, and "poppa" was a 17 year old high school boy. I was farmed out to an orphan's home.
My poppa was a rich kid, and was sent to an east coast Ivy League college, and my momma ended up marrying a newspaper publisher. Poppa was a "pillar of the community", apparently a perpetually "erect" pillar. He even avoided WWII.
So be careful about when/where you "discharge".

So, did you hit where you were aiming?

You had an unintentional discharge and the rifle was pointed in a safe direction, no injury, death, or significant property damage, right?
Then you had an AD not a ND!

Cuate, If there were no accidental Dischages the world population would be under 500.
