All you can do is to remeber this, and not let it ever happen again...

Mine was a true AD... a gun with a half-cock featuee (a revolver) had the lock let go, from half-cock, and fired a .22 lead-nose into a magazine for my .17 HN2... made a mess of a $25.00 magazine that was full of ammo at the time... (I didn't think the hammer could get up enough energy from half-cock, to fire a primer!)

it is only the 4 rules that saved me... gun was pointed in a safe direction, and not at someone or something irreplacable... (pointed at the top shelf of the safe...) My AD will ALWAYS remind me why we point them in a safe direction AT ALL TIMES!!!

DON'T tear yourself up over this, but also never forget...

gun and car collector.
Rare cars, and rarer guns.

Excellent summary and closing statement.

Thanks for being brave enough to share your mistake with us, so that we could learn from it. It takes a real man to step up and say, "I was wrong, and now I'm going to change it..." Kudos.
