Are there documented cases where a SA pistol was to blame
What I want to know is are there documented cases of people shooting someone accidentally while using a SA gun because of the short pull? I don't care if it is Leo's or civilians or military. Thank You
Your answer depends on your definition of "accidentally".

Search the following:
"Dumb Lady Policer Officer Accidently Shoots the Criminal" and view the short video.

Was that discharge accidental or negligent or reckless?

If the handgun can not fire unless the trigger is pulled, then if someone follows the 4 safety rules there should be no "accidental" discharge. On the other hand, if the weapon can fire by falling on the hammer I can imagine some accidental scenarios.
