    Ohio Man Accidentally Shot

    So much wrong here.

    A ".28 caliber" revolver?
    Who makes one???

    It's bird shot. Not like he was hit with a 150+ grain .357 Magnum round. How much damage could it do to a human?

    The shooter? What was the person doing fooling with a loaded firearm? Showing it off? "POW!!" Oooops. My bad.

    Or perhaps it was a "hold my beer and watch this" moment.


    WHITEWATER, Ohio (AP) Police say a man working on a dryer at a southwest Ohio rental agency was accidentally shot in the back of the head by someone else at the business.

    Hamilton County Sheriff Simon Leis Jr. says 35-year-old Rusty Amlung of Whitewater Township was shot with a .28-caliber revolver loaded with birdshot. He was taken to a University Hospital in Cincinnati, where a message was left seeking his condition.

    The shooting at about 5:40 p.m. Friday at Bright Rentals in Whitewater Township is under investigation and no charges have been filed.

    I own a Colt Paterson 5-shot revolver in .28 caliber.

    But not too many folk are likely to get shot with a BP cap & ball these days -- or should I say cap & birdshot.

    BTW -- There was also Colt "Root" made in .28, which is I suspect better known.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Accidental Shooting

    This is a shame, more ammo for the anti-gun groups.

    I agree with DaveH. If the report is correct and it truly is a .28 caliber, it's going to be a BP cap & ball pistol.

    Local news stories reported as a .38 caliber revolver, with a shotshell round. Those are typically loaded with, what, #12 birdshot?
