a some what similar situation like this is why there is a hole in the basement floor. jammed Ar15 and me double checking but not triple checking means a slam fire and 5.56 hole in my floor.I'm just glad I always make sure to point in safe direction even when I am by myself. I admit now I am much more strict when I check my rifles.
I will admit to my one A/D due to negligence - basically caused by a brain fart but that was all that was needed to have one land in my kitchen floor. I don't think one will ever happen again due to my fault.
Thanks for sharing and glad you are well.
When we are rushing, frustrated, fatigued or complacent is when we make the majority of our errors. Thank you for helping us all learn and be reminded that they are ALWAYS loaded. Better then than me.
