Hello all! I was surprised not to find this topic. It is a very high level of awareness indeed that prevents a person who works with a side-arm daily, for many years at a time, to never unintentionally fire that weapon. I am a conscientious (former) gun owner. I make it my business to always keep things safe. Although, in 23 years of carry, even I have made this huge, inexcuseble mistake not once, but twice. Both times were due to operator error. Both times were caused by not clearing the weapon prior to depressing the trigger. Once in preperation for cleaning, and once while actually clearing a pistol. Whatever was left of my good safety practices made for no injuries. This hasn't happened for many years, because I simply willl not allow that to happen again. This is exactly the sort of thing we should talk about. The eleventeen rounds on target in under a second stories are good, but I'd like safety fresh in the minds of those armed persons around me. A person does a thing so many times, and even without realizing it, misses a step, does something out of order etc, and bang! I hope people are honest in telling their stories, so we all can take something from each. What's your opinion on this subject? Thanks. Stock Perfection- perminent gun rookie Wanna kill these ads?
