I’m not the most technical gun guy in the world. In fact, I’m at the bottom of that class, just above the people who wil never, ever understand the difference between single and double action triggers. Yes, Virginia, there are people who own guns who can’t get their heads round that simple distinction. Ironically enough, most gun gurus recommend revolvers for shooters with that sort of non-command of technical concepts. Load (see the bullets?), point (a.k.a. aim) and shoot. Slow down partner. You might want to try that pointing part again. Besides, revolvers are safer than semis. Aren’t they? Apparently not always . . .
According to Sgt. April Stanley, investigations and statements from witnesses suggest Lovett had gone outside to start their vehicles due to the weather. He went back inside the home and the couple continued preparing to go to work.
Stanley said Lamonds’ back was toward Lovett as he was about to leave thru the front door, when a 44 caliber revolver fell out of Lovett’s pocket onto the wooden floor, causing it to fire through the holster and hit Lamonds. According to authorities, Lovett carried the gun in his coveralls as part of his daily routine.
Investigators have not found any evidence that suggests any domestic violence between the couple.
According to the sheriff’s office, “this incident appears to be a tragic accident, pending lab results and tests from the weapon fired.”
Thank you wect.com. My Colt .32 will fire if you hit it hard enough; the Internets told me about a man who done killed himself with a dropped Hammerless. But I thought you could throw a revolver—any revolver—against a wall and do nothing more than damage the wall and scratch or crack the gun.
Someone set me straight. What sort of revolver is susceptible to this sort of negligent discharge?
