Ok - fess up... Who here has had one...
A friend of mine who has now passed was a LE firearms instructor and he used to tell stories of cops who would clean their guns in front of the TV. He said invariably they would be watching some sort of show that had action or gun-play and they would backup the hero by shooting their TV's. He explained that when they reassembled their guns they were on autopilot and didn't realize they had loaded their guns while watching the show. When they pulled the trigger, they found out that their gun was loaded and ready for duty.Texas Armadillo said:I had a close call a year or so ago where I almost shot the TV doing dry firing.
