I apologize in advance as this might get a little long winded. First off: I know I'm going to get flamed for this and its my own damned fault for being so stupid, that said, I have pretty thick skin so say what you will. I'll never hold it against someone for posting their opinion Second: Lets try and keep all the "your an idiot" posts to a minimum. This post is incredibly hard for me actually put down, and I post it only to advocate caution, so that maybe it'll save just one person from doing what I did. This morning started off just great. I had duty Saturday and we always get a 2 day weekend so I had today off of work. I started the morning off by doing the usual, browsing the misc forums of which I am a member for any new happenings. On one of these forums someone had posted up a question as to whether a Magpul moe stock would work on an 870 with a Mesa LEO adapter and a reddot. Well since I had an MOE on my 15-22 and a Mesa adapter and red dot on my 870 I decided to give it a try. I went to fetch both guns and unloaded the 6 00buck shell that I keep in the shotgun. I removed the MOE from the 15-22 and the standard carbine stock from the 870. I had the MOE resting upright in my lap as I was trying to line up the buffer tube on the Mesa adapter of the 870. Well I missed, and slipped. And as the shotgun fell to the floor it caught on my pants and fired.(I will stop right here and say that if you have never heard a shotgun fire indoors, it is loud, especially if your not expecting it.) Now it turns out that I had in fact taken out all 6 shells that I though I put in, however it was not only 6 that were in my gun, apparently I put in 7 and didn't realize it. So the first thing that went through my mind was oh my god what the hell just happened, after a few seconds I realized what just happened and immediately picked it up and racked it several more times to insure that it was now unloaded. I looked around to see what damaged, after checking myself. I was scared ****less and at this point shaking like a leaf. I called the police to report what happened, then I called the property manager(I live in an apartment complex), and then called my unit to let them know what happened. About the time I got off the phone with my unit, several officers showed up and insured all of the weapons in the house were unloaded, and a couple of crime scene guys also showed up to take an inventory and pictures of the damage. After talking to the deputies for about an hour and a half I had to be taken to the station to talk to the magistrate, as at this point they weren't sure if they were going to have to charge me with anything. Turns out all the statutes deal with willfull property damage and the scare I gave myself after it happened was enough. I can pick up all of my weapons the end of this week after they run checks on them to ensure they are legal and what not(protocol I guess, and I was still feeling pretty damned lucky that no one was hurt and I only had to pay for the damages). Turns out the damages were 2 window panels(one from my window, one from the neighboring apartments), several sections of siding and a few sheets of drywall(all from the other apartment). I thank god that no one was hit and that it was only property damage that resulted from my **** up and believe me I never thought this could happen to me because I always double and triple checked every firearm I ever handled, except this one time. Its really just like anyone that goes through this type of thing says, you never think it can happen to you, until it does. I'm still incredibly pissed off at myself and angry/embarrassed at myself more than anything and I don't expect those feelings to go away for a while. I only hope that this can prevent this from happening to even just one person. because the two loudest sounds you will ever hear are a click when you want to hear a bang, or a bang when you want to hear a click.
