markie_farkie: According to this, the employee was attempting to clear a jammed gun when it fired..http://friscoblog.dallasnews.com/2013/12/frisco-gun-club-employee-in ju red-on-shooting-range.html
Marcus Aurelius: He clearly fails at step 1 of picking up a weapon.
Flashlight: There is no such thing as an accidental discharge. Only a negligent discharge.
Biner: I can understand and admire being extra cautious, but that seems borderline OCD
stevarooni: Government Fromage: I picked up one of those laser boresighter doohickies at Gander Mountain for $30. It shapped like a 223 casing and goes in the chamber. I'm going to give it a try this week. Not sure how well it will do but hopefully at least get me hitting the target. Last week was a waste of time at the range. I was turning the knobs on the scope randomly hoping to at least get on paper.Laser bore sights are awesome! If you've got something steady to use as a rest, aim at a spot about 25 yards away. Click in your scope (or even iron sites) so that the red laser dot is what you're pointing at. At that point, it's aimed as if you were able to hit something with a perfect straight line. AR-15s typically hit about 1 1/2 inches low at 25 yards (assuming you're dialed in for 100 yards), so you'll definitely hit paper if you use a laser bore sight. Love 'em, and have one for every rifle caliber I have (except .22lr).
reubendaley: Can't you just set your target closer to you for the first shot?
BSABSVR: Fark assures me that people are never shot at gun clubs.
Giltric: Now I am positive that Mayor Bloomberg is an admin here.
sobriquet by any other name: John Buck 41: BigNumber12: Predictable? Do a majority of gun club openings feature accidental shootings?Pretty obvious that an ant-gun nut submitted this.oh, i see, it's "too soon" to talk about how predictable (statistically) it is for nice normal people to blow each other apart, accidentally. Because that IS predictable.the answer to this isn't "ban guns", it's to "stop glorifying guns into your personal masturbatory arsenal".
wildcardjack: Frisco is mostly Californians, so it's not representative of Texas. Srsly, it's where they put the first In-N-Out when they came to town. It was packed open to close for weeks.
kqc7011: Sounds like someone does not know the difference between Clearing and Cleaning.Two very different operations.A hangfire is always a possibility when clearing after the primer has been struck and the round does not go off.But one should never cover anything with the muzzle at any time.However sometimes one will when clearing a round and there is no way around it.
BSABSVR: Those can't be predictable. Fark assures me that people are never shot at gun clubs.Also I hate the passive voice there. The gun didn't just up and discharge. The employee was trying to clean a loaded gun.
