I left the local gun show this afternoon and saw a pickup truck about 2 blocks down the road that had pulled over to the side. As I got closer I saw he was picking up 12ga shot shells from the street. Obviously, he had bought some at the show, put them on the bed cover he had on his truck, forgot about them, and had driven two blocks before they fell off and scattered all over a busy road.
Traffic wasn't slowing down for him, so he was trying to get them in a steady stream of cars going by. I'm sure some shells were run over.
I wondered if it was possible to hit the primer just right and have a 12ga shell go off under your wheel That would definitely make an impression on the driver!
I felt bad for the guy. I'm sure I would have heard it on the news if something had happened, if it was even possible.
The best things in life, are not things.
