Re: I had my first negligent discharge today.
It can happen to the best of us. I may have told this story before, but I'll repeat it. A friend on the local PD was participating in a joint local/county/fed drug raid. After the tense part of the raid was over, his Sargent send him out to his squad to radio something in. When he set the butt of his shotgun down on the floorboards to use the radio, it when off, blowing a hole through the roof of the car. To top it off, he had to go back inside and explain to his sargent, in front of Feds and County boys, what had happened. He was know around the squad room after that as The Skylite Kid.
