    Please Learn from my accidental discharge

    Hello Bullies,

    Well I managed to have and accidental/negligent discharge this weekend, resulting in me shooing out the basement window of my house. I figured I would post this here so you can all learn from my mistake.

    Here we go.

    I was showing my brother in law and Nephew a 9mm hand gun I purchased some months ago. We are a shooting family and they appriciated the show and tell. When we were done I was going to lock the 9mm back up and my Nephew asked to see my Ruger 10/22. So I pulled it out of the gun case dropped the magazine out and then worked the action. I did not turn on the safety or lock the action open. (big mistake) I also did not check the magazine to see if there were rounds in it. I shoot this gun very rarely and I ASSUMED that there was nothing in the magazine (STUPID!)
    When I worked the action the ejector claw nicked but did not eject the cheap ass Winchester round that was still in the chamber.
    Next I hand the rifle to my nephew and either I fumbled it or he did and in our rush to keep it from hitting the ground I grabbed it in the trigger guard and set it off. No one was hurt, however I am getting a new window installed later today to the tune of $200. Pretty cheap really.

    I have been thinking about what I could have done to prevent this here is my list. Please feel free to add to it after you tell me I am a stupid ****.

    1.) Treat every firearm as if it is loaded (day one **** I yell at people for all the time.)
    2.) Visually check the action before handing a firearm to anyone else. (I know this and still did not do it!)
    3.) Lock the action open before handing the firearm to someone else. (I know this and still did not do it!)
    4.) engage the safety if possible before handing the firearm to someone else.(I know this and still did not do it!)
    5.) Unload firearms before putting them in a safe. You may not remember when you used them last.

    Thanks for reading how stupid I am hopefully this will prevent any of you from doing the same.

    PT. <-------MORON!

    Ouch. Glad you all are OK--that was one hell of a combination of unluck.

    Not sure it was unluck. I had that problem with this ammo before in another auto. I thought I shot it all up but apparently there is 10 scratch that 9 more rounds left.

    Thank you for posting what has to be a very shaming post in the attempt to keep others from making the same mistakes.

    We all make mistakes. Smart folks learn from them :).

    The more people are around weapons the dual combination of opportunity and complacency make such an incident more likely. I'm glad nobody was hurt. Hopefully this will provide a wake up call to all of us to adhere strongly to basic safety procedures. Thanks for having the strength of character to post this, few do.

    Jeff Cooper's gun safety rules:

    1. All guns are always loaded - always.

    2. Never point the muzzle of the weapon at anything you aren't willing to destroy.

    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.

    4. Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

    When I saw the thread title, I was just glad that this thread was not in LLL.

    But, seriously, good thing that no one was hurt. I bet you won’t do this again—nor your brother-in-law or nephew.

    Wow-

    Probably a pretty scary moment. Good thing the only thing hurt was your ego.

    Remember that there is no such thing as an accidental discharge.

    Also remember, never get complacent!
