syrynxx: This wouldn't have happened with sensible magazine size limits in place.
UberDave: I love the pic of the Glock at the top of the page./Waits...
madgonad: This is actually surprisingly common. I have seen accidental gun discharges due to hot brass bouncing off the lane divider and landing on the shooter - burning them - and causing them to fire their weapon in a non-controlled and not necessarily down-range direction. No one ever got hit, although I could totally see it happening.
Yogimus: "Accidentally" and "Went off"? Nice.
iheartscotch: Or, if she had put down the gun and THEN went fishing for brass.
Muta: Gun owners are stupid. Wanting a gun should disqualify a person from owning a gun.
REO-Weedwagon: I'm so glad I live in the desert where I can go shoot out in the middle of nowhere and don't have to deal with gun range riff-raff.
Danger Mouse: I've had a shell casing go down my shirt once. I didn't shoot any one, but it hurt like hell.
stevarooni: Hoplophobes are right about my obsession with guns...while I have it in my hand. If something happens that doesn't involve the gun and shooting at a target, my finger leaves the trigger guard and the gun is probably laid down on the table in front of me, even if it's an "emergency" like a hot case going down my shirt.I've taught people to shoot and 3/4 times, that first time at the range they will go to talk to someone behind them and turn the gun in their hands and point it at them at the same time. Fortunately I've learned to anticipate this and stop 'em before their arms follow their eyes. ^_^
factoryconnection: I've never had a shell or casing eject into my clothing,...
Mega Steve: Isn't there some anime that that involves giant-boobed women who reload their guns by magically ejecting bullets from their cleavage? I swear I'm not making it up!
aevorea: One of the first things my dad taught me about shooting - only point it at someone/something if you fully intend upon firing the weapon. Otherwise, it should be holstered or, in the case of a range, placed on the table/shelf.
Farce-Side: You know where stuff like this never happens, ladies? That's right, in the kitchen.If she had been making him a sammich instead of trying to be his equal at the range, this guy wouldn't be in the hospital.
UberDave: I had a cartridge land on the back of my neck. Ow.
Vodka Zombie: Heh, Growing up, we had a neighbor woman who got a Fry-Daddy for Christmas one year. About once a month after receiving that thing, paramedics and fire trucks were showing up at her house.
Apok451: I fired a 9mm once that every third or forth shot, the shell casing would fly back and nail me in the forehead. And it was a brand new gun. Oddest thing.
stevarooni: Revolvers have a place in firearms, even still. Reliable, simple operation, and with some very powerful calibers (plus having a .357 Mag that can shoot .38 Special adds versatility).I'm lovin' my Rhino!
