Mine was picking up my Sheridan pellet gun, wondering if it was loaded.......with a hole though my bedroom ceiling, I got my answer.

I have only had one and it was one too many. Thank God no one was injured but it was a learning experience and I was old enough, been around guns enough, that it should never ever have happened. Thought I was dry firing a S&W M66 - only it wasn't dry. Have never made that mistake again but sorry to say I did the one time.

My one and only was with a makarov pistol.

I had been out filling feeders all day and had been rained on by corn. I got home, unholstered the pistol. Pointed it into the void between safe and wall and hit the decock lever. A piece of corn must have bridge the gap between the hammer and firing pin as I not only had to change my undershorts, but had corn shrapnel stuck in my neck and face from the slide doing it's thing. It was sure enough negligence on my part for not checking the weapon.

I have only onwned single action autos from that point forward.

I want so bad to make an R rated response, but I'll be quiet.

We had been target shooting out at the farm. I put a loaded shotgun in the cargo area of my xterra, planning to come back to it later. Only, we never shot it again that day. While we were loading up, I leaned it against the back seat, something shifted, and hit the trigger, and blew a hole in the roof of my car about 4" wide.

I had my .270 on an elk hunt several years ago. Something was off in the action. If the trigger was pulled with the safety on, it would fire when the safety was released. I didn't know this at the time. The trigger had been bumped, apparently, and when we had reached the road that evening to hitch a ride to camp, I released the safety to unload the rifle. It went off. We were safe since I had the muzzle pointed at the sky, but it sure surprised the hell out of us. Shortly after, another hunter stopped by to give us a lift. He asked if that was us that just shot. I told him it was somebody down the road. I was still too embarrassed to admit to what actually happened.

My dad's rifle did that on an elk hunt, only when it happened, he was getting set up to shoot a 5x5.

I closed the bolt on a 700 in 300 win mag and it fired. I was at the gun range and it was on sand bags pointed down range. It still shook me up. It had the older trigger everybody loves so much.

Ruger security six. Cleaned it while my Dad was off visiting Grandpa, and afterward put what I thought was 6 empties in it to dry fire. Unfortunately one was a wadcutter eeks333 Shot a hole in the living room wall that blew out the plaster on the outside of the house. Scared Mom's cannery so bad all its feathers fell out and it died a week later. As for me, lets just say deer season was a real bummer that year, cause Dad would look at me right before he shot 2 big muley bucks and say "remember the wall". That would have been my first year to hunt mule deer. Never forgot that lesson. Learned me to be VERY careful. up

I remember thinking about that possibility and how disappointing it would have been, or possibly worse.

And I've always wondered where that bullet landed.

Only one I have ever had was when I was 16ish. Was at a home made range and shooting from 100 yards. Had a 700 rem 30-06. Was on target but not on target if that makes sense, and clicked off the safety and the gun went off. Still hit the berm thankfully

Watched my buddy in college blow a hole thru his ceiling in a rent house

Still laugh about it, but it was loud in that room. Was trying to show me how awesome the trigger on a 1100 was rofl

My buddy brought over his full auto AK47u and a FA Tec 22 in high school. Shot about 3 mags through the 22 dropped the last mag and put the gun next to my mouth to blow the smoke like a little Billy Bad Azz and pulled the trigger. Damn near blew my nose off. Now I rack and clear every gun I pick up.
