Very sad, regardless of the circumstances...

Going to a public range is like riding down Westheimer among 10,000 squids... bad t is gonna happen and you just have to pray you don't get hurt.

A guy was shot @ Bailey's House of Guns a while back... right in the stomach with a .222 Remington. Me and a friend were there at the time and were just thankfull it wasn't us. Gun was pointed downrange, but after it didn't fire, the kid turned it towards the guy.

I feel safer at gun ranges than most anywhere in public. I often leave my truck unlocked cuz I know it wont be touched.
As far as gun safety is concerned, remember this guy apperently shot himself accidently. It wasn't like someone else did something wrong.
Guns are just tools, use them carefully and there's no problem. Act a fool and somebody is gonna get hurt.

Four simple rules to save your buddies life:

1. Treat every weapon as if it were loaded.

2. Never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot.

3. Keep your finger straight and off the triger untill you are ready to fire

4. Keep your weapon on safe untill you intend to fire.

Works 99.99 percent of the time. If someone gets shot because you neglected to follow these rules it was not an accident!

I think the scariest part of going to a range, is when you see a newbie there, whether alone or with experienced friend(s). All the rules are dictated, but their minds may be elsewhere (excited/nervous/etc.).

I've got a story my friend told me: One of my best friends, who's ex-military and very adamant about training and emphasizing all the safety issues, still didn't register with another friend of ours, whom he brought to the range for the first time. She was so excited about firing a weapon and being there, that when she fired her first shot, she got so excited about the power and the recoil, that she immediately turned around, weapon in hand & pointed up, with finger on trigger, eyes wide open, screaming "Holy sh*t! OMG!", while laughing nervously..... anyway, you get the story. My friend immediately and carefully told her to calm down, finger off, keep that gun straight up, turn around, and lower it. He felt like grabbing her arm or the gun, but that would not be the thing to do in a situation like that I'm just glad I wasn't there, but I have no doubt it happens.

SEEMS LIKE COMMON SENSE TO US, DOESN'T IT? Only problem is, there are trillions of retards out there who we rely on to be safe. If they fukk up, we just may be the ones getting hurt... just like cagers, it may be their fault, but it might be YOUR !
