Do you carry with a round in the chamber, and, if so, has it ever fired accidentally?

I thought it would satisfy the antis. That's what they try to get people to believe happens!

Someone marked down that they did have an accidental discharge. I'm interested to know what kind of gun it was, whether the trigger was pulled accidentally, where it took place, whether LEOs got involved, etc.

I have seen one of the sales guys at bulleyemarksman in cumming accidental discharge a 22 rifle in the showroom in the ceiling when he was taking the 22 rifle apart to be cleaned.So be careful when cleaning guys always check the chamber. For me I don't keep one in the chamber for that reason when I carry my Glock with no safety I keep ammo in the clip unlike my Makarov which I keep hot and ready for action.So you some people think of safety first before chambering the weapon.

That wasn't an accident. That was negligence.

Thakfully he had the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, so no one got hurt.

An "accidental discharge" (AD) happens when the gun itself malfunctions in some way. Any time the person holding the gun malfunctions, causing it to fire, it's a "Negligent discharge" (ND).

Unless you're a cop, then it's still an AD. Cops don't have NDs, they're professional enough.

I keep my .357 snubby loaded at all times, as well as its little sister, a .38 snubby. Revolvers: very dependable, near impossible to have an AD, and very difficult to have a ND. Haven't experienced either.

Mainly a revolver man here too. If semi is carried, one in and the others are waiting their turn.
A CCW handgun that is unloaded/unchambered is an expensive paperweight.

Maybe the poll should be edited to state the adverb "negligently" in substitution of "accidently" and then include a category for weapons that fire all by themselves with no input from the owner.

I hate when mine do that.
I can't tell you how many times I've woken up in the night to hear my spoons and forks playing around in the kitchen and my pistols are out on the back deck firing randomly into the woods just because they can.

:lol:

Yeah, this one time my Glock got so excited that is just fired while inside of my holster. It was the craziest thing. To be fair, it was looking at a sexy little Glock 26.
