    Thumbs down I had a scare last night

    Not what it sounds like...

    I was getting into bed last night and I was un-holstering my 1911 like normal... well I must not have gotten a good grip on it, when no sooner did I pull it out, it went flying out of my hand, hit the nightstand and landed muzzle up towards my face as it made a huge thud on the ground.

    My life flashed before my eyes as I ducked It happened in slow motion... Adagio for Strings from Platoon was playing in my head as it fell to the ground. Luckily for me, it did not go off, I changed my pants and got into bed.

    That was the scariest 2 seconds of my life...

    Ya actually it did. Upon further examination the flakes of wood were on the hammer and down in where the striking pin is. Luckily for me the 1911 has many safety features built in which were all engaged It hit pretty good right on the hammer... someone was looking out for me.

    If you were carrying a Glock you would not have chipped your night stand. Kidding. Glad everything worked like it should.

    If it was a Glock it probably would've went off.

    Only if the nightstand had fingers to reach up and engage the safe action trigger...

    Ooooops. Kind of been there and done that myself.

    Unholstered my S&W 39-2 9MM (see my avatar) and it proptly ejected from my hand, sailed out like a frisbee, landing on the bedroom floor in front of me with a loud thud, muzzle pointing at my feet.

    Had one in the pipe too. However, my model firearm has a great safety feature that disconnects the trigger, firing pin and all that when the safety is engaged. It is not supposed to accidentally discharge with safety on. Well, in theory that I do not wish to test.

    You were lucky, dude.

    That is one of the reason I typically just leave my pistol in its holster.
