Apparently some idiot in line decided it was a great idea to finger fuck his "concealed" carry piece he was going to sneak in the show and lit a round off... hit the wall, and ricocheted into someones leg thankfully not causing any penetration. guy refused to press charges even though the show promoters begged him to do so.

fucking idiots, KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE DAMN TRIGGER

I almost went with my 2 year old early... i am glad i didn't.

I heard about this today as well

Yup, there was a resounding "idiot" called out when it happened.

Darwin award was presented. Sad thing though..this moron will probably repeat this episode again and this time actually hurt an innocent.

from what i was told, he left the scene freely under his own power. he should have first had his ass kicked by people in line until the cops saved him, then got his ass beat by the cops and thrown head first into the back of the squad car. so many things the police could have charged him with that the guy who got hit wouldn't have had to say yes or no to... discharging a firearm inside city limits, brandishing, etc.

What an idiot!

I would enjoy guns shows more if they weren't so full of people capable of doing stupid things like that.

I hope they add a gunshot and ricochet to the sound effects on the radio ads.

I went to the gun show about 15 years ago, I believe it was the North Atlanta Trade Center off Indian Trail. A holster vender was selling to a family of three, Dad, Mom and 15 YO son. Dad was looking at a holster for a J frame so vendor picked up the holster, presented it with the barrel side pointed at the 15 YO's face and inserted his own personal J frame.

He shot the 15 YO in the face killing him instantly. I'll never forget this. We left the show imidiately and it was about 5 years before I went back to a show.

Most people I meet have no concept of how to effectively/safely carry a firearm.

I was at that show when you were, however that's not the only ND at the Eastman shows at the North Atlanta Trade Center. No one was injured at the other event, luckily. Always scares the hell out of you when you least expect it.

Someone dropped a bag of ammo at one of the north Atlanta trade center showes one time and one of the rounds went off was pretty quiet for a minute after that

And this is why you won't find me at a gun show.  And rarely at a gun store or range. At least I am an RO at my home range (RBGC), I can act prior to idiocy, maybe...

I was at that show with telsonman. The place went silent, and then the dad's wail went out. Never forget it. To be clear, it was the dad's ND, with the dealer's holster and gun. Shot the kid through the eye. And the kid lived a few days on life support. They were from Prattville, AL.

I went over to the table right after, to see if there was anything I could do, but SO and PD had it under control and kind of cordoned off.

The vendor from the Eastman show mentioned above turned up at Knob Creek afterwards as a vendor

I still don't understand this....every show I have ever been to always had LEO's checking the guns out front, and making sure they were all zip tied. You would have thought they would have been on top of it almost immediately.

Yikes. Well, if I need some kettle corn or paracord, at least I know a place where it is appropriate to wear my body armor.

Depends on how far down the line it was...

i was there as well. I was right there when it happened and heard the father screaming a moment after the shot. I witnessed the brain matter exiting the kids face. It was a sad event to say the least. Tragic.

how does dropping a bag of cartridges make 1 round go off!?
Link Posted: 12/16/2016 8:38:35 AM EST
I haven't been to a gun show in years, will likely never go again. There aren't any real deals and dealing with the yahoos just make it unappealing.

Gotta be like one in a trillion but I would propose that a sharp point from a projectile or sharp angle from a case penetrated the primer. TSA has similar concerns on loose rounds.
