    I was just making a video about my SIG P250. as always I perform a safety check or two before filming and then at least one on camera (even if it does not make it into the final edit). This video shows exactly why I do multiple checks. This could have been bad.

    Doh! I could see how it happened with two almost identical guns. I bet one of them got safety checked twice.

    I always do safety checks BUT once I was shipping a gun out. I took out the mag and thought I did a check and was about to drop the hammer. I said I should check one more time and out came a hollow point. It scared the crap out of me that’s for sure.

    Kinda like I stated on your other thread,you just can't be proficient with all those different guns you are trying to carry.
    Impossible to do.

    And this video made it obvious.

    Wow, talk about reading too much into something. Do you spend your whole life overreacting to everything?

    Since no one else seems able to say it, I will. Comments like these just make you look like a jackass.

    mjbskwim...I really believe You and I agree You need to go shoot your guns until you are proficient with them! But dont assume everyone else is like you! It is possible...Many of us own numerous firearms. I reload so I can shoot almost every week, usually multiple firearms. Some guns dont work out for me and I trade them, but most are simple to master. I dont carry it, if, I'm not proficient with it...that kinda defeats the purpose...so, train until that happens, but be safe about it!
    PBP just showed us he's human (a weird gun obsessed human, but still probably a human) thanks for the confirmation!

    Thanks PP, not only do you show the reality that it can, and will happen to anyone, but that you also have the guts to admit a mistake. Perhaps this should be in the video, it may save a life.

    Often Object Lessons are the best lessons, glad it was not a costly object lesson. The point is very clear. Thanks for posting it.

    I see in your video, you mention that "Luckily something bad didn't happen". There was no luck sir. Always check the weapon every time. You just proved why we do that. :D
