WooHoo! My first AD...sort of...
Not sure if this counts...
Went to the range with a couple friends to try out some handloads and just kill paper. The girl in the group brought her Taurus that she bought because it was pink.
I'd never fired one so she let try hers out. I loaded a mag, sent it home, aimed at the target, pulled the trigger and ...nothing. Checked the mag, one definately in...nothing. Chambered a different round (to re-cock it), nada.
Finally in shame I called the girl over to ask for help. I said (jokingly) it's broke" and pulled the trigger (aiming downrange the whole time). nothing. She didn't understand so I said "look at me pull the trigger" and pulled it a couple times. Well, that 2nd time that sucker went BANG!
Took me by surprise big time. Don't know if it's all tauruses, but hers has a super easy pull for a good ways, then a HARD pull to finish off. Very different than anything I've shot before. Even after I figured it out, I didn't like the gun. Felt very wrong for me, even wronger than a Glock and I don't care for those. Every few rounds my thumb would eject the mag too.
Well, I think I'm calling this one an AD as opposed to an ND, since I don't think I was being an idiot about it. Very glad that I followed the rules (although I guess I was in the grey area on that one). Very, very glad I didn't look down the barrel to see what was wrong.
