Especially while holstering.

Revolvers and Glocks and many other firearms have this problem, 1911s can avoid it through a safety that can be swept on before holstering and a grip safety.
Wasn’t the design of the 1911 safeties partly influenced by the requirement to reholster safely while on horseback, into a flap-covered holster?
Yes. The 1911 is a cavalryman’s weapon, which is what makes it and all its fans as obsolete as horses, bayonets and the Fleet.
“Police had earlier indicated the person was a man who shot himself in the foot.”
Man, woman. Penis, vagina, Thigh, foot. They’re all so hard to tell apart to the Nassau County police apparently. Makes you wonder what else they’re screwing up when they make reports.
I am a new gun owner, and feel a bit paranoid every time I handle my weapon, especially inserting and removing a loaded magazine. Stories like this heighten my nervousness.
I am wondering, what percentage of you (with much more experience than me) have had at least one inadvertent weapons discharge? And if you have, what were you doing when it occurred?
Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
