Haven't you ever heard of a "Remington moment"?
Okay I will give you that....sorta. But I would still classify that as a "discharge due to mechanical failure". I know it is nitpicky.
The older Ruger Mk I and MkII autos had a nasty habit of going BANG if they had a round chambered and the safety was taken off. So yes, that would qualify as accidental
under the "discharge due to mechanical failure or flaw". As long as you kept the thingy with the hole in the end pointed in a safe direction...you were okay. Wait, that's one of them there safety rules.
So, I will ammend my statement to 99.9999999999999999999999999999999% of the time, there is no "accidental" discharge. That being said.."Absent a mechanical failure or flaw, there is no such thing as an accicental discharge." That's what I will go with now.
