    I was in a gun/pawn shop a couple days ago checking out revolvers. After I look at a 642, the clerk notices another clerk coming in and points the revolver at him and pulls the trigger :what:. I suppose they were only "joking around," but I hightailed it out of there.

    Help me here, what part of "working" on a pistol involves chambering a live round, flicking off a safety, pointing it at your belly and pulling the trigger?

    Remember that many so called "accidents" are only listed that way because the family doesn't want to publicize or admit to themselves or others that it was really a suicide.

    +1 on last post

    also, ppl who claim that they "accidentally" shot themselves, esp if it was on a highway (!!) or alley, actually got shot by gangsters or ppl they were trying to rob....

    He didn't pull the trigger, he pushed in the wrong place with a screwdriver.

    Somebody needs a stuck round extractor, is what somebody needs.

    Thinking is painful, and most people prefer not to do it.

    That is hysterical, hawkmoon.
    I could attack a round with a screw driver and never make it go boom.
    If the gun were a revolver, what was he doing?
    If it were a semi, what was he doing?
    How do you make a round go boom into your belly?

    my guess is that he had his weak hand holding the gun barrel as a handle, and was dorking around with the action; the grips of the pistol pointing away from himself. Durring the process he likely triped the seer or hammer, which discharged the chambered round he so foolishly neglected to clear.

    Assuming that this wasn't just a half-assed suicide attempt. :rolleyes:

    Hell there are members of the is forum who do not understand basic gun handling. I have quit taking them shooting as I have grown tired of being ignored with respect to their failure to abide by those four simple rules!
    Pretty sad!

    He was trying to dislodge a live round that was stuck in the chamber.

    I have had to do this more than a couple times due to a weapon being old and crappy or being sold crappily made ammo at a gun show.

    Let me tell you brother It is a nerve wracking experience.

    Due to the difference in the types of firearms out there, it is a difficult job to do safely.

    Seems like the guy lost sight of the big picture and pointed the gun in the wrong direction at the wrong time.

    Shade tree gunsmiths need to seriously consider when to leave a job to the professionals.

    Amen to that. It's hard to swallow pride sometimes and take your "bag of gun parts" to the shop.
