I know you and all of you guys are correct and I agree with everything said here. I guess I just got a little shaken and then mad about the situation.
It is good that you are shaken as this means that you learned a valuable lesson early in your firearm experience in which no one was injured and that will stay with you for the rest of your life and will probably prevent your ever having a negligent discharge. It probably had the same effect on most everyone there...and that is a good thing.
This is what I call a cheap life lesson...cheap, in that it did not cost a life and could very easily save a life.
