(from Gun Talk Media)
Just when you think you’ve heard it all, someone points out another way to possibly get hurt with guns and ammunition. Honestly, if someone had suggested this, I’d have said it was virtually impossible.
Except that Joel, in Washington state, had it happen. Like a lot of us, he had loose rounds rattling around in his vehicle. Heck, I probably couldn’t find all the loose rounds in the console, glove box, seat tracks, and who knows where in my truck.
Well a loose round went off in his console. Here’s how he put it.
From a key in a console? How about keys in one’s pocket!
Let’s be careful out there, people! A primer is just that, and as such can be set off with ease, and not just with a firing pin or a striker!
Don’t assume. (Remember Don Brown’s intonation the first day of Criminal Law – “Don’t assume. It makes one of these out of you and me!” (pointing to the first syllable of ASSume. Don Brown was Mormon, wouldn’t say the first syllable aloud. It wasn’t appropriate for the classroom.) 🙂
Loose rounds are a poor idea. A magazine, speed strip or contained in a proper ammo box is better.
