Re: well. it finally happened -- A/D (accidental discharge)

Glad you're ok.
Never point, deliberately or not a firearm at anything you do not intend to destroy.

That's what probably saved many an accident from being a tragedy.

Nath, consider what you just said. You said that the case expands to tightly grip the chamber walls.
