    Eew.

    I am impressed by (1) his gunsmithing skills (changing out the grip safety without so much as removing the magazine), (2) his courage in posting the whole story, complete with pictures, and (3) his luck in not shattering any bone along the way.

    I also note, with some dispassionate observation, that there wasn't a lot of expansion after the, oh, maybe four or so inches the bullet traveled through various parts of his leg.

    And I am most definitely glad this was Not Me!

    well it must have expanded somewhere for there to be pieces left in the leg? It is a sobering reminder Guns are always loaded. and never point them at anything you arent willing to destroy. hope he heals well and fast

    This has certainly given me another reminder of what can happen when not paying enough attention to matters, ugh.

    He last updated it 2 days ago. He's going tomorrow to get checked out again. It's the ultimate reality show. I'm glad he's doing this to show people that no matter how good you are, you can have an accident. He mentions gun safety shouldn't be automatic, I disagree. Gun safety should be automatic, but it shouldn't be done on autopilot.

    Those images certainly were a big reminder as to the difference between putting holes in paper and human flesh. With two separate holes it is as if he was shot twice. I hope he fully recovers. This incident again goes to show that an ND could happen to anyone with just a moments inattention.

    Not to make light of a serious issue but his screen name on the other site is Darwin.
