Just a little something that happened to me when I was young and dumb.My Granddaddy taught me to shoot when I was five.He taught me the rules never point a gun at something you're not willing to destroy,always know what's beyond what you're shooting at and keep you're finger off the trigger until you're positive you want the gun to go off.
Well when I bought my very first pistol it was a S&W Sigma no safety,I was about 22-23.I had not checked before I cleaned one day and when I started to take down the pistol it went bang.Thank God I had my firearm pointed up and away with no one else in the room.From then on,and I am now 42, I have always followed the simple rules of firearm safety as well as sought out training where I felt lacking and I continue to take suggestions to better myself.

This is the reason I point the gun at my foot when pulling the trigger to see if it's loaded...not my head. geez.....

I was raised with the concept that every gun was loaded all of the time and passed this on to my children and grandchildren no matter who (myself included) told them it was not!
To this day they all know if I hand them a firearm to look at they had better check to see if it is or risk a swift kick in the a$$! There is no shame in checking to see if a firearm is indeed safe.

Call me heartless but I feel no sympathy for this person. I am the only person in my family that owns a handgun and I always use all safety precautions to insure the safety of myself and others when ever a firearm is present or accessible. If its not in my hip or being disassembled for cleaning it is in the safe.

Gun safety is no joke. Even if I was absolutely positive that a firearm is unloaded, I would never point at myself or anyone else and pull the trigger.

Always assume a gun is loaded. The only rule that matters.

My son actually has put the butt of my mosin on the ground, so that he could KICK THE BOLT OPEN because he isn't strong enough to open it by hand. He IS just BARELY strong enough to pull the slide back on my 1911, just enough to check the chamber.

I'm pretty proud of a kid who can check and clear a "man's" gun at 6 years old. He just turned 7.

He gave my sister directions on field stripping my 1911, just because I wanted to prove he could. His fingers aren't strong enough to do it himself.

Your son sounds pretty cool.
