Familiarity and complacency are a deadly combination.
This is another prime example of what happens when you don't follow proper gun safety procedures.
Man accidentally killed while moving rifles
ONALASKA, Wash. -- A 43-year-old man was killed Monday afternoon when he was accidentally shot while moving rifles.
Lewis County sheriff officials said the man was moving several rifles out of a gun safe when a bolt from one of the guns caught the trigger of a .22-caliber rifle and fired the weapon.
The round hit the man in the abdomen, and a contractor who was working at the victim's house at the time called 911.
Medics rushed to the house in the 100 block of Hogue Road north of Onalaska, but the man died before he was able to be airlifted to a hospital.
His name has not been released.
