I had my first negligent discharge today.
I was reloading my Charter .38 after touching up the bluing on it and I violated one of the basic laws of firearm safety
I snapped the cylinder closed, and I had my finger inside the trigger guard. I STUPIDLY wasn't paying attention, and BOOM! I now have a .38 bullet hole in my bedroom ceiling. I feel like the stupidest idiot in the world now. I always told myself "it'll never happen to me!" Guess I was wrong. But at least no one was hurt because I make sure the gun never points toward where someone else would be when I'm handling it. I guess all that was hurt was my pride, my ceiling, and my hearing (a snub nose .38 going off in a tiny bedroom is LOUD!). I thank GOD that's all that was hurt!

"A gun is not a weapon, Marge. It's a tool. Like a butcher knife...or a harpoon, or......an alligator!"
