  •  My nephew (12+ / 0-)

    shot out a tire in the family car.

    From inside the vehicle.  With a deer rifle.

    This shit happens all the time.  The family thought that the poor judgment was in not having a spare, not the part about carrying a loaded rifle in a car with the safety off.

      How in the heck can you do that??

      that's funny in a macabre sort of way.. **Assuming everyone is OK**..

      •  It goes something like this (0+ / 0-)

        "Hey look! A deer!"

        Spin head around to look.  Get excited.  Grab rifle getting ready to jump out of car and shoot deer.

        While grabbing rifle, bump trigger.

        Be sitting in the back seat of a short body 4x4, with the back seat almost directly over the rear axle.  Muzzle pointed down.  Gun goes off, bullet exits passenger compartment, enters tire, second "boom" and flat tire.

        And yes, everybody was fine.  Just another day in stupid-ville.

        •  Loaded rifle in vehicle, safety off.... (0+ / 0-)

          finger on trigger before rifle on target.

          One almost certain violation of state law, two violations of gun handling rules.

          Your hate-mail will be graded.

          And sorry, just seemed funny to read, now understandable..

          Kinda like NASCAR wrecks,

          Ryan Newman gets turned, Flips 9 times ends up on his roof, Perfectly fine.  

          Dale Earnhardt gets in mild fenderbender, harness and seatbelt breaks, Goes into Steering and dash, gone..

          One is funny, One isn't..
