I had one incident which causes me to differ with the folks that say "there is no such thing as a unintentional discharge that is not a negligent discharge."
I was on a camp rifle range using one of their rifles. It was an ancient Martini action .22 target rifle. The line was hot and the rifle was pointed down range. When I closed the action on the first round the rifle discharged (actually hitting the target) and a bunch of powder residue fell out of the bottom of the rifle.
The rifle had not been cleaned since they bought it at a flea market two years earlier other than swabbing the bore because no one knew how to take it apart.
Nearly everyone I own... Ok All of them... Milliseconds after I pull the trigger. Just like the ones we read about that just went off
Sounds like poor materials/design choice by the manufacturer to me.
A gun where one puts their finger on the trigger and does a hard sneeze..... :image035:
Take any gun ... "Any" .... load it and put it in a safe. Check on it every day to see if it went off by itself. Or, if it "just went off" . The answer is "no" gun "just goes off". Something has to happen to cause it, if it's a working gun with no mechanical issues otherwise. Now, can some be easier to cause to shoot, than others ? I'm sure there are. I'm sure if you bang some with a hammer, some of them might go off too ....... and are there some that are safer than others, yes.
I don't know enough about it to mean anything, ht I have heard shotguns are fairly dropfire prone. Again I cant speak to the truth on it.
