How does that happen Mmmm....
Yes, folk regularly clean loaded shotguns pointing at their face..... Hmm? Suicide clause in life insurance??
Normally take mine to pieces to clean it......
Pointing a loaded weapon at your head whilst cleaning it. Does this sound like an accident to you?
It's in the Daily Mail so it's got to be true ........ hasn't it ? Andy
The only time I've looked down a barrel when cleaning a gun has been when I've checked it's empty and that my hands are absolutely nowhere near the trigger when looking down a barrel. You might forget one check but two?
No one is intentionally this careless unless they meant to be
I shot clay pigeon with a Beretta 303 restricted shot semi auto for many years and I would have to have had the arms of an Orangutan to push the trigger whilst looking down the barrel. Andy
@Gimlet see above, don't clean shotguns
I'm safe enough. Its the chimps you want to worry about. Bloody hooligans.
Insurance dodge, He killed himself and the family want to collect
Post #3..... I agree
There are no accidents with firearms, only negligence and I'd be very surprised if any life insurance policy covered death resulting from the misuse of a firearm. Murdered by a third person with a gun they brought with them, maybe. But killing yourself through gross negligence with your own firearm, not a chance.
That would be nearly impossible to do by accident and very difficult to do on purpose - what ever gun was being cleaned - the minimum legal barrel length is 23” plus length of lock before you reach trigger.
In his defence I did this once.
I got better.
You got better from death? Or better at cleaning?
T'was a monty python reference. Which seemed apt in the circumstances
