I attempted to de-cock an old Western Auto bolt-action .22 when I was in high school by grasping the striker (or whatever you call the cylinder that sticks out the back of the bolt) and pulling the trigger. It wasn't my gun and I wasn't familiar with how they worked.

It sucked my thumb and forefinger into the gap between the bolt and striker, cutting me pretty badly. The worst part was that I had to rotate the bolt and cock the gun again to get my mangled parts out.
