Seeing the post of the accidental discharge in the classroom reminds me that no one is perfect and it is very easy to have a embarrassing moment with a weapon. I have a couple: The first happened with my Grandfather who was the local police chief and owned a Gun Shop. When I was 10-12 years old he would take me shooting at a farm pond with blocks of 2x4 wood as targets floating in the pond (please no flames about ricochets, it was a long time ago). Using the hood of his cruiser and a sandbag as a rest I was deadly accurate (in my head) until the day I tried to get a block resting against the bank nearest the car. Aiming to low, I placed a nice deep crease in the top of the fender of his new Galaxy 500 Police Cruiser. There were several of his friends with us that day and they all had a big laugh at my expense. The second was during my LEO days. Three of us were serving a warrant on a mobile home resident that was know to be a problem. I failed to secure my SW 5906 in it's shoulder holster and when I ran up the outside steps my pistol fell out of it's holster, landed on the rickety wood deck and fell through a hole into the mud underneath. The other two officers were laughing so hard they could barely knock on the door and laughed even harder when I had to crawl under that deck to get my weapon! Lesson learned. Always snap your thumb break strap. Ok..I got that off my chest. This is better than therapy!
