After reading some stories on this forum about guns accidentally discharging, it got me thinking. How many have had this happen? Sometimes it's due to stupidity, sometimes gun malfunction. I'm sure no one on this forum has had it happen due to stupidity but...have you ever had an accidental discharge of a firearm? My story: I was at a friend's house about 15 years ago. He took his pistol out in his yard and was showing his sister-in-law the gun while they were sitting in the grass. He "unloaded" the gun and then, as she sat wide-eyed with curiosity, he pointed the gun at their feet, pulled the trigger and BOOM! Missed her foot by an inch. That was my most memorable lesson in gun safety and I have never forgotten it.
