Folks I just can't imagine these unfortunate happenings. An old friend of mine from a past employer was out last week honing his skills at the trap range. He had completed his set and was making preparations to leave for work. He had put up his 12 ga. shotgun, but for what ever reason missed ejecting the last round, leaving one lone 12 ga. no. 8’s in the chamber. As he was sliding the gun into the bag (butt first), it hooked on something in the back seat, discharged and nearly cut him in two.

He survived for a week, but was overcome with too many complications from all of the surgery and he was diabetic.

Norm Gardner – RIP

In closing – It’s almost Dove Season for many of us out there – I ask you to please make certain you EMPTY the weapon of ALL rounds. Then check it again. PLEASE!

Sorry for your loss Nick, very sad to hear.

A good friend of mine put a 22 Mag round right thru his foot a few years back, as he was picking the gun out of the truck.

Always, always, saftey those weapons right after the last implied shot or before moving away from the target (absolute first thing you touch).

Grandpa was a gunsmith from Northern idaho, he taught me alot about saftey and weapons and always pressed the issue.
