It bears repeating

Do not try to catch a dropped gun.

    Kind of expected of some one named “lucky”. Had a dog once with that name, got run over in the field one day.

    Darwin was really close on that one, the man, not the dog.

    Some days you just have to wonder.

    Probably a Glock as well.

    +1 on the unfortunate name!

    The inauspicious name immediately caught my attention too.

    I have to wonder if the name “Lucky” is inherently bad luck.

    I can agree with the reckless endangerment charge. Handling a loaded firearm unnecessarily (and obviously unsafely) could easily fall within the definition of that charge…but discharging a firearm? I would think that intent would have to be present. The verb “discharging” implies a willful act as far as I’m concerned.

    But, I’m no lawyer and heavens knows the law has no relationship to common sense or even logical interpretation of plain English.

    The old “I accidentally shot her in the head” defense rears its ugly and unbelievable head again.

    It ranks right up there with, “I thought the gun was unloaded,” “The gun just went off while I was holding it,” and my personal favorite, “I didn’t know it was my wife/girlfriend in the hallway at 3:00am.”

    Firing your handgun while fumbling with it seems like a reasonable accident, shooting your female roommate/friend right in the head while fumbling with your gun seems a little too, well, “lucky,” for want of a better word.

    Probably a Glock as well.

    For the same reason that if there’s an auto accident, I would say probably a camry as well. There’s a lot of Glocks and camrys.

  6. HardCorps Says:

    Yea but the glock doesn’t have a manual safety nor a double-stage trigger.

  7. Chas Says:

    Fumbling with any pistol that’s cocked is a real bad idea. Could easily have been a cocked single action or double action.

    SayUncle

    Could have been a springfield XD as well, since it also does not have a manual safety. (I carry one)

    I thought Glock from the 9mm rating. Guess it could gave been almost anything.

    Even money on a chrome slide?

    Right up there with preventing a knife from hitting the floor by cleverly using your foot …
