I had a Raven Arms .25 that went off when I hung up my coat, firing into the floor. less than a week later sitting and reading heard a muffled BOOM from the gun locker, opened it and my bryco .380 had suffered the same fate.
    A 1911 is Not an obsession, it's simply a recognition that it's THE Gun. :-) All others are runner ups. And hey, if all else fails, aim for the nose and fling it to knock out your foe. Let's see y'all do that with a kel-Tec. ;-)

    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.

    So lack of maintenance isn't considered negligence? If you ignore your cars brakes till one day it just wont stop, Will it be the manufactures fault? DR

    Sounds like poor materials/design choice by the manufacturer to me.

    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.
