    Hurt myself with one of my handguns. I was sure my Taurus revolver was unloaded when I was taking it out of the safe to do some reorganizing. Wasn't thinking and, you guessed it, dang thing slipped off the top shelf and fell right on the instep of my foot... :) Hurts a lot and now I'm walking with a limp. Just goes to show these things can hurt you in more ways than one. I have this theory that maybe it was pushed by a Smith and Wesson... :)

    This wouldn't happen if we had some common sense gun regulations. Why would someone need more than 1 handgun anyways? :)

    I once dropped a full .30 cal ammo can of .45ACP on my foot. Right before I was supposed to meet people for the holidays.

    We should at least ban these 'high capacity' assault revolvers. See how unsafe they are? Why would anyone need more than one or two shots? If just one toe is saved! Think of the childrens toes! :D

    Good thing they weren't Cop-Killers or everybody in the house would've been limping.

    If I were a Smith and Wesson, I wouldn't want to share a room with a Taurus either...

    You clearly know nothing about Glocks sir! If Jordan or anyone else dropped a Glock it would have exploded and killed him and everyone in a 5 house radius! Thank God that wasn't the case!

    Glad to hear your OK Jordan.

    BTW, i think it would be a good idea for all you plastic gun owners to wrap them in bubble wrap. You never know when???

    Lefty.

    Yep....Slapped a magazine of 13 .45ACP into my XD45 when putting the pistol into my safe. It didn't click in and fell right onto my bare foot. Geez, it hurt.....!

    See, you guys are thinking way too small, banning the gun for falling on his foot is way too lax, we need to outlaw gravity, its caused a problem at one time or another for 100% of people, and its gravities fault people can be overweight!

    Lets get this one written up and taken to our state officials!

    Maybe we can piggyback it on the current bill to outlaw Di-Hydrogen Monoxide. Nasty stuff.

    +1 on the Di-Hydrogen Monoxide as a potentially harmful substance. It should only be used to make coffee and beer.
