    A Negligent Shooter Gets Lucky

    Fron Accurateshooter.com:

    "Here we have a story so filled with negligent acts that I can only marvel that the shooter survived the experience. The photo and narrative were provided by the gunsmith who took in the repair job, my comments are in italics. Itís worth reading, we canít get enough safety warnings in our hobby. ó German Salazar"

    I always read accident stories when I come across them to remind myself of the dangers inherent in guns. The author here counts SIX negligent actions on the part of the shooter - read them to remember! Safety Lesson: Bore Obstructions Cause Nasty Accidents Daily Bulletin

    Thanks for posting, it is always better to learn from the mistakes of others and thankfully the shooter was not seriously injured.

    Wow. Words escape me right now. He should have dont a visual check with a light to ensure the barrel and chamber were free of obstructions. He got lucky

    I can't even begin to comprehend the level of negligence and ignorance that went into that. There's an evil part of me that wishes he was hurt MORE for being that incredibly dumb (but only a small part).
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
