You would probably have to drop it off of the empire state building to even possibly have a discharge from a floating firing pin. It just simply is not going to happen.

This is only a problem is semi autos, which move the bolt faster than you could ever hope to operate it. Even then it is very very rare.

I would not worry about it. My mini 14 has a floating firing pin and it doesn't slam fire.

EDIT- I just check, my moss berg 500 also has a floating firing pin and it is only maybe two years old at the most, which makes me believe all mossberg 500's have floating firing pins.
