    Accident? Doesn't sound like an accident. Sounds like an idiot pulled a trigger

    You are mistaken... I have seen in movies, guns can go off at anytime. Especially if dropped! So it totally could be an "accident".

    Should shut down Cabela's it's their fault. I'm sure he was just jacked up on the excitement of going inside that his brain shut down. Sort of like Buck fever only Cabela's fever. There is no personal responsibility any more don't you know? (except maybe for guns) And if that doesn't play, "it's Bushes fault"!

    The ~Only~ Issue I wonder about, after the Negligent Discharge, is was he dis armed, due to his going into an Ambulance, etc.

    WITH zero friends, family present, the LEO's May Have to legally provide safe keeping for his three fire arms....

    Side note, ~With Three~ owning FIREARMS should bring him into (or away from) being considered a "Newbie".... And should at least be kept from carrying On his DNA ancestry!!!!

    /sarcasm .....

    philip :confused:

    I hope he isn't on Obama Care. He'll probably lose his leg if he is.

    When are some people going to learn? Don't intimidate the gun! Don't tease the gun. Don't call it names. Don't discriminate against it. It likes to be honored... like the flag. So don't step on it. Don't burn it. Don't spit on it. It deserves respect, honor and dignity. So offer praises and help build it's self esteem.

    Yeah, the gun did it alright. I don't blame it. It just finally got ticked off and is not going to take it anymore! Too bad that it's license will now be revoke. Not to mention the time in the slammer.

    :rolleyes:
