Don’t feel bad
I was showing off my Benjamin Marauder Pistol with carbine stock attached… to a few people including my 24 year old son.
I loaded the magazine and closed the bolt…
Unknown to me that my little finger was touching the hair trigger I set up….
POP, out through the living room window and storm window….

Man was I embarrassed, I have been around guns all my life…..and taught my sons the correct way to handle rifles… 
At least I had the good sense to have the barrel always pointing away from people…

I am constantly reminded of this mistake, by wife and others that she tells…..

In fact, I still get upset with myself thinking I did such a foolish thing….. 
I know this will never happen again…..safety always comes on while loading of showing….
