Graphic pictures. You have been warned if you click the link.
Bob even if he thought it was unlaoded, why in the world would have have it pointed toward him in the first place?
That should remind us all to be very safe, and use our head when we are handling loaded weapons
Definitely food for thought, even if the photos don't show.
Just bunch of red x's
For some reason, they removed the pics. It showed where the guy had a ND into his leg with a hollow point. It weren't pretty!!
The pics are still there, just follow the links. Dave.
Here is the link w/ photos:
Thanks for the reminder.... never out of line! He disregarded Rules 1,2 and3, and was fortunate to not have severed the femoral artery or injured another in his house.

THE 4 RULES OF FIREARM SAFETY
1. All guns are always loaded!
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy!
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target!
4. Always be sure of your target!
Don't forgot: #5 Always know what is beyond your target.
He had the gun pointed away from himself, but he was in a corner of a concrete basement and the ricochet got him. I guess by the time I got to this, they had the pictures re-loaded, pretty gruesome. Still, he was very fortunate.
He mentioned a richochet, but that the bullet passed through him travelling in a downward direction is "interesting", as I'd figure a richochet would be travelling upwards or sideways.
I assume that that Rule#4 includes what is beyond the target.... but we all know about ASSUMEing!
It appears that what is left in his leg are pieces of jacketing. I'd want them out, as they look to have lots of edges and odd shapes that could do mischief later on.
M1's gotta point there, looks like he got shot by the bullet on the way down...But if that's the case how did the bullet fragment like that? I was just ASSUMING it hit the wall first and splattered him with bullet chunks. OK, lets review, assuming is dangerous! :biggrin:
Lets all learn and be CAREFULL out there!
It could have turned out a lot worse.
