One Fly expressed a nice sentiment, "Hope this guy heals fast and becomes much better for it."A 21-year-old Clark man suffered severe hand injuries Tuesday after the shotgun shell he was taking apart exploded, according to the Routt County Sheriff’s Office.Keith West told deputies that he was working in his shed in the 56000 block of Lupine Drive off Seedhouse Road when the accident occurred. West reported he was using a Dremel power tool to take apart the shell, which he thought no longer was a live round. The tool hit the round’s primer, igniting the round.
This brings up one of the recurring themes around here. Do people who have "accidents" learn from their mistakes and become even more careful afterwards.
I would imagine the answer is in some cases, yes, in some cases they learn for a while and then slip back into their improper behavior, whatever it was, and in some cases, no.
That's why I preach the one strike you're out rule. When it comes to guns and ammo, we cannot take any chances.
