Accidental Shooting Prevention Act of 2003 - Amends the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to prohibit any person from manufacturing or importing, or any Federal firearms licensee from transferring possession of or title to, a pistol manufactured on or after January 1, 2006, unless the pistol includes: (1) a plainly visible device in a contrasting color that clearly indicates whether the pistol is loaded; and (2) a mechanism that prevents any semiautomatic pistol that has a detachable ammunition magazine from being fired when the magazine is not attached.

Directs the Attorney General to impose a civil fine for a violation of this Act, to suspend a firearms license for a second offense, and to revoke such license and license eligibility for subsequent violations.
