Guns generally don’t go off when dropped, they have to pass stringent tests to make sure that doesn’t happen. In all likely hood someone was messing with their weapon, it went off then they dropped it…and lied about the order of events.

Unless maybe he was carrying a Colt Single Action Army from the 1890’s with a round under the hammer…then maybe.

It would also be good to know if this was a weapon legally possessed by a proper person.

Leave your gun in the holster folks! Stop playing with them!

It was an old 2 shot derringer which doesn’t have a safety. I was 4 feet from it. It went off when it hit the ground.
