    He may have just been boasting, trying to ride the macho man train and clueless to how ignorant the statement truly is.

    Sounds much like what Elvis Presley did whenever Robert Goulet or Mel Torme appeared on the set while the "King" was watching.

    Grandad off his meds again?

    I am in the camp that says I don't wanna be around him 'cause of too many "unloaded firearms" all of sudden shooting something.

    What's scary is that I know three other guys that have had thier guns "go off" when they thought they were unloaded.

    One hit the trigger on his AK and put a round through the roof. Told his wife the previous storm knocked a support beam through the ceiling...

    Another guy was cleaning his XD and pulled the trigger, putting a .45 round through his wrist. It took months to heal...

    The last had his 12g shotgun barrel proped on his foot and was using the butt stock to lean on. It 'went off' and blew most of his foot away...

    I think if they're not going to clean the chamber first then hearing protection is a good idea while cleaning their gun. The other thing is mano, no one will look down on you for wanting to go to the range by yourself. We will understand.

    Dang, Mano! With shooting friends like yours, who needs shooting enemies? Maybe you need to revisit your shooting friend selection process?

    Firearms are big-boy toys.

    Are we seeing an undercurrent of immature firearms ownership exhibited around here of late?

    I remember one Winter my brother borrowed a shotgun to go pheasant hunting around Salina Ks back in the late 70's,it was a hammerless double barrel SxS,About 7 or 8 of us had just walked a field and were debating on which place to hit next,he had the shotgun by the barrels and set the butt stock on the ground apparently hard enough that one barrel discharged .....It was really quiet for about 30 seconds and the look on my brothers face was priceless.Needless to say the gun was then unloaded and somebody dug up a gun that wasn't prone to go off without warning.I don't think my brother saved his underwear after he got home either
