Some people seem to think my one-strike-you're-out rule is a bit too harsh when applied to accidents. Let me ask you this? Would you want to go shooting with a guy like this? Would you trust your life to the idea that he'd learned his lesson and is now safe to be around?The incident occurred around 2:45 p.m., the police were called and statements were made, the management had temporarily shut down the range.
"The guy was trying to clear his gun pointed towards the floor and accidentally shot it.
Fayetteville police reported that the bullet struck the customer in the lower leg and went through his calf. The injuries were not life threatening and the victim was taken to Womack Army Medical Center.No charges were filed, police said.
Not me. I figure anyone stupid enough to shoot himself while violating at least two of the 4 Rules of Gun Safety, is capable of anything, even doing it again.
