Just because you can,dosen't me you should own a gun.
Basic gun safety rules were violated here.
1) the gun is always loaded...period
2) never point a gun at anything you don't intend to destroy
3) finger off the trigger till you're on the target.
4) be sure of your target and backstop.
There are NO exception to the above rules...ever
If that was me,I would be kicking that guys ass,and yes I've done it before.I would then hand him back what was left of his gun,after I at the very least,destroyed the barrel.
I truly hate to see stories like this,because it's only a matter of when,and not if,that moron will hurt someone else or himself.
+10. Those are very good rules to live by. Especially number 2. Many accidents happen because someone was being stupid, no gun should ever be pointed at anything that is not meant to be shot at. I have seen excellent shots and former military act stupid with guns. They would have been extremely angry if some kid or someone else acted like that, but apparently because of their experience they felt accidents couldn't happen with them.
