    Only if the purse's strap is knife-cut proof.

    Yup! Can you imagine if she didn't have one in the chamber? Hmm ... a "Thud" sound as it hits the ground. Zero possibility of anyone being injured or property damaged. No need for the LEO being called. I hope she is given written warning or something. Maybe additional weapon safety training and a good holster too.

    Sometimes I think there should be. It would solve a lot of problems.

    IMO such a person should have to attend a safe coarse to get their gun back, similar to driving school.

    Yeah except it's a REVOLVERunless you advocate people walking around with a hammer on an empty chamber like the old west revolvers that had no safety.Sounds like a cheap gun that has no hammer block and hit the hammer as it struck the floor.
    IMHO this is the reason everybody that is gonna carry needs to attend a course,not only to learn the laws,but proper ways to carry a gun,this wasn't an accident it was negligence,could have happened just as easy digging thru her purse and pulled the trigger by accident

    Don't know, but my 1972 vintage doesn't have one.

    I bought a Ruger Security Six in the mid to late 70's that does have a transfer bar. So, I'm guessing between '72 and '77?
