Warning Extremely Graphic safety reminders
I'm guessing this is the place to post this as it didn't fit to well into the other corrals here. Again these are very graphic not for the weak stomached folks.
Now that we've seen what a split second of bad judgement or flat out carelessness can cause. Check out why I hate the 21 foot rule even a guy with a pocket knife can do this kind of damage, imagine a few psychos packing blades.
I know these are kinda gory but a picture is worth a thousand words, and pics of life altering accidents I hope will stay with all of us. Who knows one of these might stick with a few of us and make us be a little more observant of gun safety and our surroundings. Be safe and God Bless.

"If you change that belief to 'I can handle it', you'll no longer experience FEAR. You'll simply see what you are facing is a challenge... an opportunity to test yourself.

Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

OUCH is all I can think of. Scary to think of the damage that can be done by the things that some of us take for granted on a daily basis.

I've seen these sorta pics before and they are - to say the least - salutary!!!
Better a gun than a knife - but never underestimate the damage-potential of the blade!!

Whhhoow !! I think everyone should see those. Wonder how many of them were alcohol related.

From reading the stories attached to two of the three.. no alcohol was involved in them (or, at least, no alcohol was mentioned).

Many years ago I got into the habit of "TripCheck" everytime I clear a weapon. Pistol, shotgun, rifle, every weapon that goes bang get an automatic Checked Three Times operation before I go any further. Three times I check the chamber. Three times, never less. I have seen first hand the carnage that can come from a failure of the operator to properly clear his or her weapon. For me......THREE times is the key! Stay Safe!

All of us should look at each of those pics. A few times. It just takes ONE moment of absent-mindedness....

I'm sure glad I finished supper before seeing those pics!
And some without brains, unfortunately.
We are walking, talking, uncooked pot roast with brains.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
