Tonight, I had my first Negligent Discharge. After cleaning my CMMG conversion kit for my AR-15, I reinstalled the kit into my carbine. I do not own any 22 snap caps- so I cycled a live round to insure it was feeding properly. I then dropped the mag, cycled the bolt a few times (which I thought ejected the round) and dropped the hammer with the gun pointed toward the floor.
And promptly shot my basement floor.
I failed to visually inspect the chamber to insure the weapon was unloaded. Thankfully, no one was hurt (aside from my pride).
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.You are a danger to yourself and others, my friend. The only difference between you and most of the fellow gun slingers is you admit it.
My belief is a person who has proven to be capable of such dangerous stupidity is more likely to do it again in the future than someone who has never done it. Others hotly contest that idea and claim the opposite. A negligent discharge makes a person even more careful and therefore less likely to ever do it again, they say.
I'll bet I know which one you believe.
