    Don't drop your gun! That being said I have drop a gun once putting it back in the safe. It was in condition one and did not go off. Safeties work and you'd have to throw it at the ground hard muzzle down to have any chance of making my guns go off accidentally. However there were a couple new rugers that were recalled because allegedly they would go off if dropped and you were unlucky. The SR9 and LCP if I remember correctly.

    It is somewhat discerning that they they WANT TO file charges.. Always after the guner..

    Amen. S&W has a recall out for certain of their Walther PPKs regarding a similar issue.

    If you have an accidental discharge and injur someone else through your own carelessness, be ready to face the music, either civilly or criminally. If some yahoo dropped his piece while taking a dump and put a bullet in my leg, there would he **** to pay.

    I agree, the safe handling of your fire arm is your responsibility.

    Discerning? You mean disconcerting?
    I disagree, I'd most definitely file charges if some moron shot me on the toilet.

    Someone would need to pay the piper (so to speak), but that would be between me and the idiot. The criminal justice system should stay the heck out of this one. Its a civil matter.

    I would love to know what type of gun it was since most modern handguns are supposedly "drop safe." She might have a case against the manufacturer.

    PS: The S&W recall involves the guns firing when the decocker/safety is employed...not when being dropped. Which is far worse in some ways. :)
