Legal problems and EDC mods
Ok, I have searched and all the threads I've read have not touched this issue. Also, I'm not trying to start any fights or stir the pot. I'm only looking for facts. So here is my quesion:
Have there been any cases where an individual involved in a SD shooting got into trouble in court for modifying his/her gun. I've read many posts here with this gem but I have yet to see evidence to back this up.
As always, if I have missed a post I would be greatful if someone would post the link. And please guys, no flaming or arguing I really want this thread to stay open!! Thanks :bigsmile:
Not a problem in my mind.
The only arguments about modifications seem to be the 'hair trigger' circumstance that brings on an 'accidental' shooting which triggers the claim of culpable negligence. Then the late lamented's family dog piles on for a piece of the settlement.
That's not going very far if the respondent testifies he (or she) intentionally shot and the reasons justifying the self defense.
I could see a problem in one of those "... we were wrestling for the gun and it went off..." scenarios.
It depends on how you live your life and how you conduct yourself.
None of this addresses the issue of having one's $2500 super sexy pistol in the court's custody for between three weeks and twenty years.
