Mishandling one is the usual cause of an accident.. Either that or inexperience.. However, good, knowledgeable, safety conscious people have accidents with guns on the very rare occasion.. Yes they DO minimize their chances, but even the very diligent and competent can do something wrong for an instant for the first time in his/her life, have attention diverted for a half second, or just plain have a freak 1 in a million happenstance on any given day.
    If you are arrogant enough to say "It can NEVER happen to me", I would say that you are being very naive'.. Bad things happen to good, or smart, or accomplished, or even expert people in all disciplines ... bob

    Very true. It’s important to remember to not finger the trigger until the gun is presented on target.

    Also here in NC last week,a CCW carrier walked into the Atrium Health-Cabarrus Hospital here in Concord with "a gun in his coat pocket".The gun discharged and the bullet grazed the shoe of another visitor.The carrier was charged with discharging a gun in the city limits and violating concealed carry laws because the hospital has signs stating that except for law enforcement, firearms and other weapons are prohibited .The hospital has metal detectors at the ER entrance and deputies on duty but at the time ,did not have them at the other entrances.

    I am a striker fired only tools guy. The reason is: if you freeze water inside striker chamber, striker fired will not shoot: no strength of spting will breake ice to move striker. If you freeze water in chammer if firing pin, hammer fired will still fire: impact of hammer will breake ice (you may need second pull, still). See HK torture test, that video made me think and converted me to hammer fired guy.
    Now, this comes from hammer fired guy: stop bashing striker fired in general, and glock in particular (the last I dislike as it points to the sky for me). It is trigger pulled, in other words operatot error that causes these negligent dischargers. Lighter shorter pull just simplifies idiot's actions.
    But choice of tool for me, and I am sceptical about myself, is simplicity and reliability. As far as safety is concerned: judge yourself how dangerous you can be. And how lazy. Millions of drills prevents wrong actions no matter where your bran may be in critica moment.
