Well, I had my first accidental discharge yesterday.
I was being very careful. Was on my last gun of 4 to be cleaned.
I'd been at it for about an hour.
Had the patches out, my Hoppe's oil and bore cleaner in the mix.
Lubed the barrel, dropped it in the slide.
Grabbed the recoil assembly, fed the rod and spring into the front of the slide. With my fingers still saturated in lube, went to seat the flat part against the barrel lug and
The recoil assembly popped back out and blasted my Hoppes bore cleaner bottle.
Now it wouldn't have been so bad if I'd have put the lid back on first.
But on a good side, my small container of hand tools is really clean.
