    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.

    Wow, just wow.
    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!!

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

    Ouch..definitely a good reminder to double/triple check.

    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....

    A Friendly Reminder

    It is wise to remember that we are all basically meat.

    We are walking, talking, uncooked pot roast with brains.

    That is what we all are.

    Hopefully all shooters will use those brains to constantly remember that bullets are extremely unforgiving on our raw meat.

    Always be mindful of your safety rules and regs.

    Keep your finger out of the trigger guard.

    Concerning the gunshot photos - I've seen a few far worse and right up close and personal.

    A projectile discharged can never be called back.

    Modern self~defense projectiles are intentionally designed to destroy as much raw meat as possible.

    NEVER point your firearm at anything you are not willing to turn to Shattered Bone and Bloody Jell-O.

    Firearms are serious deadly business intended to disrupt meat.

    Please Do Yourself Family Friends and Innocent Folks around you an extreme consideration and never forget the fact that you have ability to instantly destroy them if you goof. That's the reality.

    Follow the rules.

    There are not very many of them.

    Don't Goof.
    It's that simple.

    I'm sure glad I finished supper before seeing those pics!

    We are walking, talking, uncooked pot roast with brains.
    And some without brains, unfortunately.


    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.
