We need a new forum "Really Stupid Mistakes"
I believe the creation of a new forum is in order. Titled "Really Stupid Mistakes".
This actually took place at my rod & gun club.
Man shooting at the outdoor range, accompanied by a friend. Break open, single shot .357 Mag. rifle. He experiences a squib load. Very little noise. Witnessed by a new pistol shooter on the bench next to him. Rifle shooter was observed breaking open his action, checking the bore, then proceeded to chamber another round. (PISTOL SHOOTER TAKES IT FOR GRANTED THE BORE IS CLEAR.)
Another shot, by rifleman, another squibb load, same result, minor sound noted, like a primer going off. Opens action, checks bore, proceeds to get a long rod & a hammer out of his vehicle. After some pounding on the rod, accompanied by a little cursing and the remarks, "Don't know what happened here, I loaded this stuff myself". After much tapping on the rod....
TWO BULLETS COME OUT OF THE BORE & DROP ON THE FLOOR.
PISTOL SHOOTER STANDING NEXT TO HIM OBSERVING THIS ALMOST HAS A HEART ATTACK!!!
'What the hell are you doing here, are you trying to kill Me!!" Pistol shooter asks
brain-dead rifleman. Rifleman replies, "Well, duh, I don't know, I thought there was a bullet stuck in the barrel." Rifleman & his friend both seemed insulted that the pistol shooter questioned their sanity.
This is an unsupervised range, with club members going & coming as they please.
Rifleman is now banned, new club motto may be, " Don't come around here selling us any STUPID, we're full up."
I think we need a new forum for things this stupid. Pay attention to who you are shooting next to.
