Thread: Be certain of your backstop - Accident in Norway.

    Be certain of your backstop - Accident in Norway.

    A 70 year old Norwegian man got a nasty surprise when he sat on the toilet at his cabin in Løkkevika, South of Oslo. A hunter missed the moose he was aiming at, and the bullet went through the wall of the cabin, hitting the 70 year old in the stomach and seriously wounding him.

    Missing the Moose in the first place must have taken some doing.

    Probably not !
    A senior member of a shooting club in Norfolk discharged his weapon in the club cottage.
    The bullet went through the party wall into next doors bathroom.
    Fortunately no-one was injured and after some lengthy deliberation and hassle he had his membership terminated.

    If you are going to be shot, sitting on the toilets probably the best place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    a chap on a very cold day at our pheasant shoot many years ago where I was beating produced a .22 pistol out of his coat and showed it to the other guns one of which when handling the pistol discharged it and shot the owner right in the chest. The bullet never went through his clothing to break skin, saved by a heavy leather jacket!
