My dad was loading his 270 from the passenger side of his truck opening morning. Had one in the chamber and then push a clip into the bottom and the gun fired. Direct hit into the drivers side headrest where the bullet came apart and hit several different locations inside his truck somewhat near the headrest. Be careful out there and remember to treat a gun like it is always loaded and ready to fire. I will post pics as soon as I get some.

Glad no tragedy. Sounds like gun has problem (unsafe trigger).
Was he using truck as blind? (rule#3- keep gun unloaded till READY to use).
As mentioned, good thing #1 was observed (kinda)....

Didn't clear his firearm, luckily no injuries. Valuable lesson and great reminder

Sounds a little foggy, what is a hind plate and why do you have to push a realease for it to put a magazine in? What gun? Was it a malfunction? or did someone have a finger in the trigger guard of a loaded not on safety gun when they were trying to put the magazine in?

Was it a Ford, chevy or Dodge? Might have been a justifiable shooting.

All kidding aside, glad no one was hurt!
