Re: I had my first negligent discharge today.
I was sitting on a large rock, overlooking a tree-grown gully when Dad called that we were moving on. I started unloading my 03A3 prior to climbing down that rock and one round went off. Trigger finger in the wrong place while working the action.
Had one in the middle of the night when somebody came in through the locked front door. Grabbed the pistol, slammed in the magazine and tripped the slide lock. I don't know how scared the intruder was by the report, because I never saw him. He made almost as much noise going out the broken door as coming in. Sheriff said he used to live in that house until his wife locked him out.
