Re: I had my first negligent discharge today.
I was at a range and was putting my 10-22 away. It was in the case and I noticed I left the mag in. I went to pull the mad and some how I hit the trigger. It went click. It was empty but I couldn't help but think if there was still a round in there I could have killed some one.
From that day on I always verify the gun is empty and the safety is on before I move from the shooting area. I have been around guns all my life and that is the closest I have come to a negligent discharge. You can never be to careful.
Criminals advocate stronger gun laws to foster a safer work environment. This limits their exposure to risk.
