Local gun show, some dope brought in a loaded weapon to sell. Customer assumed it was unloaded, fired off a round. The owner took the weapon back, fired another round. Guess he still wasn't sure if the weapon was loaded or not... So pulled the trigger to verify? :whistling:

Standard protocol for presenting a weapon from you to another is:
1. Semi-Auto, drop magazine, rack and lock slide back. insert finger to verify barrel is free of shell. Present gun to another for inspection. 2. Revolver: Open cylinder and make sure its clear of shells. Present gun for inspection. Simple safety-Works.

Isn't pulling the trigger the quickest way to check if a gun is loaded or not?

Holy crap. Reminds me of that video of the DEA Agent claiming that he was the only one in the classroom that was qualified to carry a pistol. I laughed my butt of when he air-conditioned his foot. What a tool.

And that'll work for all of them I'm aware of...

If you pull the trigger on a gun without checking it and it goes off, you're an idiot.

If you pull the trigger on a gun without checking it that was just negligently discharged 5 seconds prior and it goes off again, you have forfeited the right to remain living amongst civilized people and must go live with monkeys for the rest of your life.

Well, the vendor is banned. Do any of the Michigan folks know if the show at Mt. Clemens is run by the same people who do the one at the GTC in Taylor?

There was an ND there about 6 months ago at the disarm station. Fortunately the sand barrel did it's job. Still, I wish insurance companies would realize it's a bigger risk to ask patrons to handle their guns twice than to just leave them loaded in their holsters.

It did. It was a vendor's gun he was trying to sell.

While I don't ever stick my finger in a weapon w/ a locked slide (I always have this fear of the slide releasing.. :))... I have two eyes and can see if a round is in the chamber... I totally agree w/ what you said, and it's how I always present a firearm to someone.

Edit: Did I read that article correctly, and the ND's actually occurred w/ two different people? Boy Darwin must have needed a laugh... Owner of pistol was rightfully banned for life from the show, but the other guy should be to. 64yrs old, makes you wonder how often this dude was negligent with a firearm in his lifetime, and this time, it bit him.

IGFYes, you read that right... :rofl: (Buyer pulls trigger) BANG! Seller says: "Wow!!! Can't believe that gun went off, I could have sworn it was unloaded before I gave it to you!!! let me see that... (seller takes gun back, pulls trigger) BANG!! Yup! guess its not unloaded... :dunno:

You forgot you should look down the barrel first to see of it is loaded or not.;)

To make matters worse, I read all of the comments. One of them was by a guy who said he was there when it happened, and was then told by one of the other vendors that the seller that did the second shot was a retired LEO, of all things. :shocked:

Only if it's pointed at your foot, or your groin. . . .

Funny you should say that, a kid just shot himself in the groin here in Detroit. He was at the fireworks and had an ND. The ricochet hit a girl in the leg causing a very minor injury.

Well at least the seller didn't look down the barrel to verify there was no bullet in the chamber!

Heard a LEO did just that. Put his gun to his head and told everyone it was 'safe'. He pulled the trigger and really showed them... that it wasn't safe.
