Stepped out this morning to go to work,and slipped on the concrete steps that were covered in ice. Apperently my apartement didn't toss any sand,de-icer,or salt the night prior. Anyhow, busted my butt,and found out my base plate of the magazine in my carry weapon(a XD45) had came off, dumping the base plate retention plate,the spring, the follower, all 12 rounds on to the ground. Yep, made for a great morning, and chuckles for the wife. Thank goodness, though, I didn't spill a drop of my coffee. That would have really erked me.
