Vodka Zombie: 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.
I'm so glad I live in the desert where I can go for nice long walks in nature without having to wear blaze orange and worry about getting shot.


I'm so glad I live out in the boonies where I can go for a nice long walk in nature and find all the improvised shooting ranges with their assortment of shot up trees, boxes, glass, TVs, old chairs and couches, old blown-apart plastic shiat, and piles and piles of shotgun shells,

Farce-Side: 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.

But nobody got shot right? RIGHT!?!?!

Sounds like a too much oil/not enough common sense problem there. Fry Daddys are pretty good at their jorb, until you put them in the hands of an idiot, which sounds like what happened.


That's exactly what happened.  She's...  well...  She's pretty to look at!  And..  uhh...  GREAT personality.

But, yeah.  She'd find a way to burn the house down while making a PB&J sammich.

I don't even want to think about putting a gun in her hands.

CheapEngineer: We're all missing something important here...

The sheriff's office report said a casing flew from the woman's gun and landed inside her blouse, causing her to flinch. She bent over to get the casing out of her blouse when the gun accidentally fired.

If you have to bend over to get at your cleavage, then either you're 70 years old, or you should be working the afternoon shift @ Pleasures instead of at the shooting range.

\IJS


I'd imagine the bending over was to keep the crazy hot casing from resting against her skin.

I would think that it was an involuntary response. She contracted a whole series of muscles and she just happened to have her finger on the trigger.

I had a hot shell land on my ear (and stayed wedged against my head because of the safety glasses I was wearing) which took a huge amount of effort to keep my hands pointed down range as I hopped on one foot to dislodge it, as one would try to clear their ear of water after swimming. (I obviously wasn't thinking clearly or I would have put the gun down and plucked it out, but I had the weird presence of mind not to point the gun in an unsafe direction)

I had no idea that hot brass burns were an inherent part of shooting.  And you guys call that fun. Wow.

Appropriate preparation for target shooting involves minimizing the risk of contact with ejected casings.

When I was at the range this weekend, I had ejected casings land on my shoulder a few times. They just sat there until jarred off. Of course, I was wearing a hoodie, hat, eye protection, and ear protection, so no issues whatsoever.

/I've had hot brass go down the back of my shirt before. It's not that hard to set the firearm down and then take care of the problem.

Mayhem of the Black Underclass: I would think that it was an involuntary response. She contracted a whole series of muscles and she just happened to have her finger on the trigger.


Doesn't matter, it's not that difficult to control. All you have to do is get yourself in a mindset of not doing anything until the gun is safe. If that means you get burned, well, you get burned.

BarkingUnicorn: I had no idea that hot brass burns were an inherent part of shooting.  And you guys call that fun. Wow.


It's an inherent risk, not something that will happen (though the more you shoot, espescially around other people, the probability approaches 1), and that part isn't fun at all. However, I've received much worse injuries doing stuff that is much less fun, so it's a risk I'll take.

I thought about the underlined response a bit further and it seems even sillier, now that I think about it. Compared to the regular spills that come from mountain biking or other active sports, having the occasional bit of hot brass hit you isn't a big deal.

Hell, we had a campfire going a few years back and, due to one of those random pop/snap deals that occur with natural wood, a hot coal shot out of the fire and managed to go right down a lady's top and get wedged in her bra. Too bad she was in her early 60s, or that could've been a sight to behold. As it was, it was a sight - just not a good one. What I'm saying here is that things can happen, but most aren't a big deal.

In winter months, I have occasionally found ejected brass casings in my right coat pocket after target shooting.

UberDave: I love the pic of the Glock at the top of the page.


/Waits...


OMG, you think that's a Glock? It's an AK-47!

But seriously, why is the Beretta logo missing from the grips? Looks like they shooped it into a blank circle? I meant, why isn't the AK-47 symbol not on the assault grips?

Danger Mouse: 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.

I've had a shell casing go down my shirt once. I didn't shoot any one, but it hurt like hell.


I've had a 9mm case fall down behind my glasses and get trapped against the bottom of my glasses and my cheek, where it sat for all eternity while I put the gun down and took my glasses off. It left a blistering burn there for a few weeks. So no I make sure that any safety glasses I wear have a piece on top to prevent that and I wear a baseball cap as well.

Ladies should wear a very very tight shirt. That's just a general rule though.

Attractive ladies should wear a very, very tight shirt. And a bra with holes for their nipples to poke through. All of the fun of the bra-less look without the ravages of gravity.

That might be the most desperate attack I've ever seen on me.

I guess I could ask you what you're basing this silliness on, but I'm sure it's probably some weirdness rattling around inside that unused puddle of sludge between your ears.

But, yeah. Try not to look so desperate, okay? Just makes you look crazy.

you_idiot: Ladies should wear a very very tight shirt. That's just a general rule though.


As much as I'd like to agree with this, I can't in good conscience advocate burnt boobies. Loose shirts, and for gods sake don't tuck the farker in. I found out the hard way that a tucked in shirt is a most excellent way to funnel hot brass toward your junk.
 
2013-01-28 02:40:56 PM
Considering it was a woman, she probably just felt the slight discomfort of the shell on her bare skin and immediately wanted to kill something. Her poor husband was just the closest living thing she could try to destroy.
 
2013-01-28 03:04:17 PM
Meh, I'm sure at one point in her life she won't regret shooting him.

ManRay: Danger Mouse: I've had a shell casing go down my shirt once. I didn't shoot any one, but it hurt like hell.

My HK tends to eject straight up and to the side just a bit. It takes a little getting used to.

I took a GF to the range a few years ago, her reaction to the brass coming back at her was to drop the gun on the table in front of her. Fortunately she was not that tall so the gun did not go far. The casing ended up betwixt her boobs, she was not pleased.


My HK UPS 9 dropped a hot casing down the front of my wife's shirt the first time she went shooting. She kept the gun pointed in a safe direction, but we were also in the "one shot only" phase with the semi-autos.

Oh for Christ's sake, it's not like I'm shooting up old TV's at Arches National Park. I shoot TV's out in BLM land where I can see seven miles in any direction. Then I shovel all the debris back in my truck. I'm probably a bigger enviro-nutter than both you clowns, and a card-carrying member of SUWA.

I was just making a bit of a joke. I have no problems with people shooting so long as they can see what's around them. I live in WI. We have trees everywhere and drunks who shoot at noises instead of actually, you know, identifying a target.

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.


That's a military design feature. Helps to remind you to keep situational awareness in combat. It's kinda hard to day dream when you catch a hot piece of brass to the face. Keeps you sharp and focused. But why civilians need gun with military style features such as fixed or folding stocks, pistols grips, and hot brass attention retainer devices, I'll never know.
