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!
How in the world did the cartridges stay in the cylinder with the muzzle up long enough for you to snap it shut? and how did you touch off a DA trigger without knowing?
