Thread: Close shave

    Close shave

    I went out fowling this afternoon and somehow managed to feed a 3.5" 12b shell into my 10b semi auto, luckily I am still able to type this with all my fingers, it went off with a bit of a fizz more than a bang but split the steel head of the shell, wont be doing that agin

    I was out ducking one night and a guy on the next pond put a 20 down a 12.
    He wont be typing with his left hand again.
    I shoot a 20 and 12 but religously check my pockets if I change gun, but in the heat of the moment I imagine it would be a very easy mistake to make.

    A lesson to all.

    At least you are ok Mike.

    Thanks for that reply. I've often wondered about that as I run a .243 and a 7mm08 - obviously the 08 rounds won't chamber in the 243 but vice versa, they would. I assumed the bullet might bounce around a bit in a bigger barrel.

    @mike243- you're a lucky man. Glad to hear you're ok.

    I don't believe the gun never blew up.... a wee fairy tale?

    What I don't beleive is anyone telling the world something like this that has the possibility of killing themselves or anyone with them .

    Far from funny more like tragic , as are the other stories of the same nature.

    Same as a 20 in a 12 bore, no problem till you drop another 12 on top and pull the trigger

    Impossible for that to happen without the gun destructing so in my opinion it is BU***IT.
