    I just got done cleaning my Sig and had reassembled it, loaded it, and everything. I slapped the mag in and released the slide stop to drop the slide forward.

    Then the slide landed 6 feet across the room.

    I forgot to move the takedown lever back to its normal position. Thank FSM nothing happened, and that I didn't have an ND or anything. I'm not sure if anything could happen in this situation but it sure scared me.

    What if I'd pulled the trigger to decock it (not a good habit, and I always use the decocker, but what if I wasn't paying attention?)

    :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

    Good advice with any gun. Most accidents occur while loading or unloading a weapon.

    (Not to mention the fact that many suicides are reported as "gun cleaning accidents" :?)

    That's probably so the media can blame the gun more easily.

    Look on the brightside: at least your thumb made it out unscathed this time.

    :)

    No pwnage for us, not ours.

    It was my ring finger, and I'm certain the recoil spring on the Sig would have broken it, instead of just really hurting like the Taurus did.
