About the only time you might read about one is when they fired shots or shot someone. More lives are saved by safe gun owners everyday the media just tries to put a blackeye on gun owners with lopsided reporting. JMHO
    Yes, the news media loves a good story about a licensed gun owner getting into trouble. Sometimes I think they get so tired of reporting on real crime that they jump at the opportunity.

    But as a long-time instructor and RSO I can tell you from experience that a large number of students/shooters aren't following proper safety rules. They're good law-abiding people and don't believe they're doing anything incorrectly or improperly. But the trained eye sees it all around. I always advise shooters to take a good look at the safety habits of others on the range before they set up to shoot. If it doesn't look/feel right then come back another day.

    The Glock Pistol is gonna be the Final Nail in the Coffin of Legal Carry because of the accidental discharges!!!! You heard it here first.

    I've always thought the Glock would be a great Nightstand Pistol. You hear the breaking glass. Open the Drawer. Reach for the Pistol and don't have to worry about fumbling for the safety in the dark. Even if it discharges as you grab it all you did was damage your nightstand. I'm not saying the Pistol IS That Bad. I'm just talking a worst case.
    ??????????

    First... regarding NY, I'll just assume you're joking, right? Because if anyone believes people in one state are smarter than those in another... well, I won't say it.

    Second... there is no such thing as an accidental discharge. It is a negligent discharge, it is a misdemeanor in most states and is indicative of someone not familiar with his/her gun, ignorant to it's use or in dire need of training.

    Third... and speaking of smarts? Keeping a gun in the nightstand as THE plan for PPITH is about as bad as it gets. The whole idea of proper PPITH is to NOT ever need to use a gun. Your gun IS A TOOL OF LAST RESORT, not a first line of defense. You should have motion sensor lights, alarms, a dog, a secure bedroom with doors that can't be breached, a cellular phone for backup and most importantly... a practiced plan. Now I'm from NY... not so dumb. I teach personal protection and it seems I know this subject matter quite well.

    Remember this... if you shoot an intruder, even if you're 100% right, even if you're not charged with any crime, chances are it will ruin your life. And by the way, I carry nothing but Glocks, chambered. That gun isn't going to fire unless I pull the trigger or am incapable of a proper draw stroke. The only ND I've seen came from a Beretta 92FS (with a safety) and a shooter with 29 years experience as an armed guard. That round clipped me just above the waist on the right side. Just letting everyone know, an ND can come from any gun and any shooter at any time if that person is incapable of handling the gun professionally and safely.

    Just my opinion. But then again I'm from NY.

    But can you afford the lawyer after the smoke clears?

    Bob, you don't need much money to make a great safe room. Use four inch screws on the bedroom door hinches and striker plate (go right into the studs) Add a deadbolt to the bedroom door if you can. Home Depot also sells a "Master Lock Door Security Bar" that can be slammed under the door knob to brace the door ($20). For a total of about $30 you can make that room very hard to enter. You can also buy a "screamer" for about $15. You slide it under the bedroom door and if the door is opened it screams with a loud siren. These little tricks slow down the intruder. Simple burglars will scoot but anyone who is trying to harm you will hammer at that door for a while. You get 911 or LEO on the phone so that there's a recording of you warning the perp if he enters the room he'll be shot. You grab that gat and hunker down behind some good solid furniture and wait for him (or the police) with the phone line open to the dispatcher. If he enters that room, well, nighty-night. And it's all caught on tape by the police.

    Check out the door alarm and security bar. Much cheaper than a lawyer.
