    Glad you are ok.
    Actually this is one of the guns that had to pass the drop test to be sold in california.I've been dropping the gun on carpet to see if the hammer might of dropped but it's staying cocked with the safety in fire position,I think it's a case where the gun hit perfectly to cause a ND,might of been an extremely soft primer.Anytime a gun goes bang when I don't pull the trigger makes me want to make sure it won't repeat it in the future

    Very, VERY lucky nothing worse happened, as CHL owners we have to live in Yellow, and we must always be careful with our weapon ... Duh!

    Truly glad to hear that you were not hurt any worse than that! From now on, I will try to be extra careful when using the toilet, especially in a public restroom.
    God bless our troops!

    WOW that sounds like one hell of a scare! Im glad to see that you came out of it all without too much damage. I have the same setup (1911 in a Crossbreed ST) so I will be paying ULTRA close attention when holstering after hearing your story.

    Stay safe...

    I pulled the firing pin and spring out of my SA1911-A1 and my RIA 1911,the SA firing pin felt like it was stronger than the RIA spring,not only that but the SA spring is 3/4 inch longer than the RIA spring,I'm sure the SA 1911 could pass a 10 foot drop test on the barrel but I bet with a 3/4 inch shorter and weaker spring the RIA couldn't,It failed a 3ft drop accident,I intend to notify armscor corp on monday if anybody has the number for customer service I would appreciate it

    that's why i said 3 pages back to post it at m1911.org. there are 2 customer service representatives over there that see every post in the Armscor forum. the president of the U.S. part of Armscor even responded to one of my posts once to tell me that i had a rare pistol. they would already be all over this if you would have posted over there.

    We are tiling ours next week. After, I would be better off "gettin real hurt" in a AD, than letting the tile get damaged---'cause Mrs. will finish what the gun didn't do.'

    Seriously, glad you weren't seriously damaged. Tile can be replaced. You can't.

    Glad to hear your okay except for the cut. How old is the firing pin spring and how many rounds on it?

    Glad you're OK. Is the bullet in the floor? Or did it ricochet somewhere? (Or did I miss where the answer is already given?)
