I would like to hear about some of the dumb things you all have done with a gun. That if your brave enough to admit it. Or seen some else do something dumb. I'll lead off with; #1 Shooting my a newly purchased Walther P22 at the indoor range of the store I bought it from. I was sitting for the sight in then stood up for some offhand shooting. This put me in a different position so as when I fired that first shot the HOT spent case bounced off the divider and landed in my shoe with no socks. I still have the burn scar 7 months later. Lesson learned. Ware socks when shooting. #2 Shooting a T/C Contender with a 14" 45/70 barrel (The Ouch Mister). At first I was shooting 300 gr. bullets from it then switched to a load with 405 gr. bullets. With the first shot with the 405's the gun recoiled back and the scope soundly smacked me in the side of my head. Lesson learned. Duck ? #3 Shooting with some friends in the winter. One of them brought his new Remington 700 in 7MM Rem. Mag. with the hard plastic butt plate. We all took a turn shooting it standing off hand. I was wearing a Nylon down filed coat over a Nylon down filed vest and when I shot the gun it recoiled and slid on all the layers of Nylon and scope eye piece hit my eye classes which cut my right eye brow. Lesson learned. Don't do dumb things in front of friends. They'll talk about decades later at deer camp. #4 Shooting with two friends with a Ruger Std. Auto Mk II with a scope mounted on it. We were shooting rapid fire and the one who was a novice at shooting and was going to try and out do us by shooting off the trunk lid of his wife's car not realizing that he shot the trunk lid 10 times. Lesson learned. Know how to lie convincingly that you drove through the bad part of town when the wife asks, "WT* happened to my car ?"
