was shooting a pump 30-06 one time...during a rapid fire session, a round got lodged up inside the trigger assembly. the gun jammed and would not fire or allow the slide to operate. we kept it pointed in a safe direction..the floor of the truck..
when we got back to the "cabin", we put it barrel down, pointing at the floor, on a table to look down inside...that's when we 1st noticed the round jammed in an unbelievable spot down in the trigger mechs...when we free'd the round BOOM...THE PLASTIC TABLE BLEW UP LIKE A BALLOON!!!!! the round went through the floor..small as a pen tip.
point being, stuff happens, and a 20 year vet should know to be pointing it in a safe direction.(this means you should not get even yer hand grazed when it goes off, and if your not counting on it to go off...well thats not being safe.
SAFETY IS NO ACCIDENT
