Thats why you dont let people play with your guns.

I actually allowed a friend to examine my AR.

I checked it and it was unloaded and held open.

I heard the bolt slam home and he had reinserted the mag and loaded a round.

The dumbass fucker didnt even know it was ready to fire at that point.

Lesson learned. If you are going to allow people to handle your weapons you need to supervise carefully.

I'm having a hard time visualizing accidentally shooting yourself in the head with an SKS.

Was he inspecting the bore while his finger was on the trigger or what?

I can think of better things to do rather than finger fuck with a loaded SKS @ 3 a.m......

Some folks must be practicing up for the season opener of the Darwin Awards.

IIRC an SKS round can go in your foot and come out your head......Or was it go in your head and out your foot?...

No really, I remember reading it in a news story. It was a quote from a cop too..........

Had a buddy do the same thing to me many years ago. Had the rifle there and a mag sitting on the table , in walks one of his other buddies grabs rifle and mag ,drops bolt and points it at the guy then raises the rifle and proceeds to put a round through the roof of his dads house. I was just walking back into the room when I saw him do this from across the room. Took all of about 5 seconds to almost kill someone and put a hole in a roof.

Not cool at all.


Since then if someone wants to see a weapon, mag is removed and the weapon is cleared multiple times and I keep the loaded mags.

I think someone may have broken a "couple" of the Four Safety Rules.

Sarcasm: Dumb ass probably broke all 4 rules.

That's what I was wondering.

It's bad enough someone points one at someone else and kills them, but why the fuck does ANYONE voluntarily point the gun at themself. Hell, I don't even like checking the bore, unless it's clean off the damn rifle so I can look down the breach end. Yes I know you have to sometimes, but that is during the process of cleaning, or buying something and I need to check for issues.

managing to get a loaded rifle up to your head and then pull the trigger on it somehow while it is still pointed at said melon is a level of fucking stupid that just ached to be removed from the planet in the first place.

When people are at my place my gun is in my room with the door closed. If they go in my room without asking, they get told off. If they touch my gun without asking, they're out the door.

Really, as the gun owner, it's your responsibility. You shouldn't have a loaded mag laying near a gun if you aren't standing there watching them. If all you're doing is showing off a gun, don't have any mags near it.

If anyone wants to see my guns I remove the mag, clear the chamber and lock the bolt back and hand it to them WITHOUT a loaded magazine. I dont ever hand over a loaded magazine.

It's hard to dig up much sympathy on these types of stories.

Maybe if all schools had required gun safety classes in Health/Gym class for young ones, we'd see much less of this kind of shit.

...Pineville, Louisiana? Probably went off pointed at his head with someone else's finger on the trigger. Probably not the most popular guy locally. Probably crossed up with someone and it was payback time...Pineville, Louisiana

Whats with all the SKS hate in the news? Not too long ago it was posted a guy's family was suing Norinco because his SKS failed to exctract a live round and sent the tip of the next round into the primer, killing him. I'm willing to bet $100 the SKS wasn't maintained properly, but its stuff like this that makes me wonder why people hate on Murray's firing pins.

Edit:" I don't have any proof from the article it slamfired, it could just be some dipshit behind the trigger.

The Pineville (LA) Police Department has ruled the shooting death of a Pineville man as accidental, following an investigation into the Sunday incident.
The victim was identified as 19-year-old Michael Lichtey of Pineville.
A number of people were gathered around 3 a.m. Sunday at a residence in the 900 block of Retreat East, near the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Pineville, when they began "playing with an SKS assault rifle," witnesses told police. When the gun was in Lichtey's possession, it went off and shot him in the head, police reported.
The Pineville Police Department investigation indicates there was no foul play, authorities said, and police are waiting for the autopsy report from the Rapides Parish Coroner's Office.
