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!
My best friend passed away Jan 10th of this year, as time goes on it gets easier to accept and you start to remember again the great times you had. I am just grateful now for the time and the friendship we shared and that the Lord has him now and he is in a much better place.
