Re: After shooting for 27 years it happened to me...
Welcome to a very large shooters club comprised of gunners who didn't think it would happen to them and when it did it made us more careful. In my case a 45 cal hole in my bedroom floor from an empty gun my brother gave me to put away. My fault, I believed him and didn't check. Pushed the slide forward and dropped the hammer, makes a feller get downright humble after preaching safe gun handling for years.
Don't much matter what gun it is, the malfunction is usually between our ears.
