    I have no sympathy. If you cannot clear your handgun without it going off... well that's just not good. I know that once you do something time and time again it becomes routine and you get comfortable, but people, handguns require constant attention and are things noone should ever become "comfortable" with. Keep your finger off the trigger! It's as easy as that.

    I'm going to reserve judgment.

    I know for a fact that one of our Oregon members put a round through the floor pan of his car while loading, and he demonstrated by posting a video that it was a MECHANICAL MALFUNCTION that released the hammer when the slide was released, NOT a negligent action on his part.

    The firearm in question (a Rock Island Armory 1911 IIRC) was returned to the manufacturer for service.

    Unless it is a mechanical malfunction there is no such thing as an accident. It will always be negligent....

    For some reason there don't seem to be as many "Malfunctions" among the more "quality" firearms. How many tiems do you hear of failures that cause unwanted discharges with Sig's, HK's, XD's etc. Seems like more of a problem with those that were selected more on the basis of low cost rather than quality.

    Another factor to consider is how many times the weapon has been modified. Seems like the most common "mod" is to the trigger mechanism and I have lost count of how many people claim to be "Trigger Experts".

    Sorry, I was commenting on Phssthpok's post, not the Michigan one.
