This is what happens when the edge of a magazine in an AR15 gets inside the trigger guard of a Rem 700 with the safety off when you're driving through a bumpy field.

Live and learn. Take steps to prevent this is the future.

Chambered, safety off, unrestrained guns while driving in the field. What could go wrong?

Op, You are lucky you didn't kill somebody.

OK, So what is that, a toolbox?

I never said that I was the one that shot the hole in the floor. Also, that's not my truck either.

This. Safeties have a purpose. As do empty chambers when they don't need to
have a round in them.

The safety off was the issue. We roll hot all of the time out hunting but the safety is on when it's riding in the truck with the muzzle down just in case. Obviously the muzzle was down here too so the risk to the occupants was minimal.

No, I had not, but I also have been in those EXACT shoes. Younger and dumber is the phrase!

No, that means the safety is on. Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear enough.

Link Posted: 9/30/2011 10:57:33 AM EST
Wow, we always drove from one place, to the other, when hunting with actions open. Different strokes, I guess.
Link Posted: 9/30/2011 11:02:56 AM EST
Are you going to insist on flagging the chambers or opening actions from now on? Would seem like a reasonable precaution.

How did you spotlight and hunt from the truck without a round in the chamber?

No it wasn't clear!! It reads that you roll hot all the time hunting, But safeties on while in the truck.. which I took to mean that when you are on foot you don't use safeties.. Am I the only one that read it that way?

It only takes a second to chamber a round.. No varmint is worth someones life..
Link Posted: 9/30/2011 2:40:03 PM EST
Nice little detent to rest the muzzle in next trip. Make sure the rifle has a "Floorboard Crown" to prevent damage.

When I'm stalking, depending where I'm at, sometimes the safety is off and sometimes it's on. A hog can hear the click of a safety from 20-30 yards at least. So if I'm in thick stuff where I could be in close before I see or hear them then it's off.

When we're running traps and we're loading or unloading hogs from traps or into a trailer the safety on the AK is off. If we're riding in the truck or anytime I'm not physically holding the gun the safety is on.

Sometimes a second is all you've got. I make money killing hogs. I do this shit multiple times a week. It ain't Jim Bob and Joe Jr. out drinkin beer shootin coyotes and armadillos till 3am when you're out with us, it's serious business.

This is the video we put together with Chris Lucci at Wild River Ranch. We aren't amateurs.

I'll carry safety off with one in the tube on a bolt gun, but I'll pull the trigger and relax the striker with the bolt handle. Lift the bolt handle and close again to reset the striker and the gun is back in action.

AR's I'll run Amber, safety on with the bolt open. Close the bolt and your rockin. The diesel clatter and the bolt going into battery is the last of any vermon's concern at that point.

Like the new drain hole though...
