I am 54 years old. Began carrying a pocketknife by the first grade to school, bought my first .22 rifle by age 13, first handgun by age 21. Got my CCW in 1998. I have never had an accident or incident when the gun went off that I did not intend. Some friends have shot the ceiling, floor, exploded the glass pig coin bank, shot a toe off, etc. I assume others go a lifetime without accidents also??
