Absolutely. A human caused this no matter what. I've had one negligent discharge (also with a single action revolver), but muzzle was pointed straight at the ground and no injury or damage occurred. Shook me up completely, though. An unexpected discharge of a 357 magnum can make you need to change your shorts. Spent a long time going over my mistakes and correcting my practices. Then practiced over and over again with an empty revolver.sikacz wrote: Thu Dec 02, 2021 8:04 pmStill something human caused that hammer to drop perhaps not intentionally. It’s obvious he was pointing the weapon directly at the person shot. That is definitely on him. I’d have more respect for him if he just said, guns are dangerous and I made careless mistakes.Stiff wrote: Thu Dec 02, 2021 7:55 pm The Assistant Director also claimed that Baldwin didn’t pull the trigger, that his finger was outside the trigger guard the whole time.

It’s hard for me to believe that Baldwin didn’t pull the trigger, but with another witness confirming it, I suppose it’s possible. After all, they’re dealing with an old revolver here, not a modern handgun with multiple safeties that make it impossible to fire without pulling the trigger.
Solid reminder that the 4 rules protect humans from their own stupidity, giving you a chance to learn to be better next time.
And I now repeat sika's phrase as my confession: "Guns are dangerous, and I made careless mistakes."
