    I went to the local law enforcement equipment and uniform shop to get a holster for my new S&W 5903 9mm. I had the pistol unloaded for sure in the plastic carry case. At the counter the assistant asked to see my pistol to match a holster. I took the pistol out and swept it right across her chest. She took in a very quick and panicked breath and swore. I knew immediately what I had done but being young and stupid I just brushed it off, said it wasn't loaded, and kept talking. She was visibly upset. I was embarrassed and shaking when I got out of there. Haven't made the same mistake since then - 15 years ago. It's a huge part of how I teach my boys now.

    The legendary M16 and its very unstable FCG.

    Was sitting in a weapons rack. The very junior e-2 promised me it was unloaded.
    I did not take his word for it. I simply took it off the weapons rack to check his claim. Weapon fell right out of my hands. BOOM! a single round discharged. Punched through a 0.5" aluminum sheet and died in a tree somewhere in the woods or in the ground.

    Needless to say that little punk got some nice Pecs after that.
