Also, something similar happened to a friend of mine with his rifle. It discharged and the round went thru the wall, thru the garage door, across the street and thru the neighbor's car and lodged into their exterior wall.
I'm really glad you posted this, and even more relieved nothing bad happened. Just remember that a gun is made for killing ****, same way a skilsaw is made for cutting **** off (wood, fingers, hands etc) Respect the tool, every single moment.Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

I am glad this has served as a cautionary tale for some of you. I would never give up my firearms but I can tell you that it has changed my outlook on them as far as show and tell.

Loudest gun shot you'll ever hear.
Edit: The first person that ever really taught me about guns basically told me that everyone has at least one negligent discharge in them and it's just a matter of when rather then "if". The key is to make sure that when you have your ND that you're following the "never point a gun at anything you're not willing to destroy" rule.
My ND was with a weird cylinder count revolver. I think it held 8 shots, it was also a real gun enthusiast gun, sizeable caliber and a crisp light trigger pull.
It was my first day shooting a handgun, maybe the second or third gun i had fired that day. They had me shooting it on single action, cocking the hammer every time. I think I was also shooting one handed but I'm not sure...
But out of habit I cocked the hammer before remembering that I was out of rounds. (I mean...a revolver holds six and I shot six and went click so I must be out)
I reach my left hand up to take the gun by the cylinder so I can hand it back to it's owner, as my left hand approaches the gun it goes BOOM due to my finger being on that light trigger. (I still had it pointed down range when this happened
Cylinder flash burned my hand pretty good. I didn't realize that's what it was, all I felt was pain so the first thing I do is freak out and do a quick finger count.
I've shot much bigger guns since then but that's still the loudest shot I ever heard.

I shot into the living room wall one time.
I had gone shooting that day and had been cleaning my xd and fell asleep on the couch. I have no clue how the round got chambered, the mags were both empty and there were no bullets in the living room, and obviously there weren't any in when I put the slide back on the gun.
I woke up at about 3am in my normal zombie state and headed to my room. Then I realized I shouldn't just leave guns laying around the place so I picked it up to put it away and noticed that the cocked indicator was out. Must have left it like that after I put it back together. The only way to decock an xd is to pull the trigger.
Now, the xd has a loaded chamber indicator that tells you when a round is chambered. In addition to this you should ALWAYS check the chamber of any gun anywhere, ever. Even if there is no possible way in hell bullets have ever even been near it. I didn't pay attention to either and BLAM! I really didn't even hear it. It was more like my ears popped hardcore. Like when you are on a plane times ten.
Scared the **** out of me. Luckily that wall is made out of brick, so no harm done. I still called the police and an officer came and was really friendly and he could tell I was pretty freaked out, but he and my roommate still had a pretty good laugh. I still get all sorts of **** for it.
Our living room smelled like gunpowder for the next three days.
Just goes to show that you should always always ALWAYS check the chamber.

I was sort of lucky with my one and only ND, I pulled tight on the trigger of my SLR whille aiming at activity in woods on the other side of a field. Then stepped on a rabbit hole. Lucky it was a blank and I had a BFA fitted, unlucky Cpl Taff Rideout waas sent by the directing staff WO to see what the shot was and I got a bollocking folowed by suddenly looking at the sky unexpectedly with a ringing in my ears. He caught me a good one especilaly seeing I was twice his size, stumpy litle ****.

Another thing, always take apart and inspect a firearm you just got. my grandpa got a side by side shotgun awhile ago, he loaded 2 shells and closed the breech, as soon as he did one of the barrels went off. when he took it apart to investigate, he found that some parts were damaged. so always check it over first, its not worth the risk

One soldier shoots and kills the other playing quickdraw.
Claims it was self defense afterwards.You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it
