Guns do that

when you put your finger on the trigger, then flinch when they go off

Once a long time ago I was wiping down a loaded single action, and had put it on half cock so I could wipe the cylinder, when I was done for some really dumb reason I pulled the trigger, imagine my surprise. People do dumb things then try to blame the equipment, the only equipment failure that day was my brain, and the only damage done was a small 22 caliber hole in a door frame. But that day some 20 years ago I learned if you are doing something with a firearm, that does not involve shooting, unload it first.
