  • Only if there's a round in the chamber. It's still highly unlikely.

  • Not if you put it away WITHOUT it being loaded ... it's called GUN SAFETY.

  • As other have said, if a round is in the chamber and the safety is not one, then the jolt of the impact could make the firing pin move.

  • any gun has the possibility of going off when it falls... do you keep a gun lock on the trigger?
