From a late friend- in between getting recalled to active duty, he was a cowboy, and, in season, a hunting guide in Arizona. Had some tenderfeet on a packing trip- riding in on horses. Enroute a deer ran out about 150 yards ahead of them. One of his tenderfeet decided to take a shot at it. WHILE STILL SITTING IN THE SADDLE- he pulled his rifle out of the scabbard, leaned forward, LAID THE BARREL IN BETWEEN THE EARS OF HIS HORSE, and touched off a round. Scared old Bessie out of 3 years growth, temporarily deafensed her, gave her a flash burn , and sent her into bucking the IDIOT on her back into the next county. Don quietly demanded all firearms and ammo from him- he spent the next 3 days of the trip riding, no guns. Not on horseback, not on foot. When the idiot complained, Don produced his credentials as a deputy- offered to charge him with felony animal cruely. He shut up.

Little did I know, my brother had set up the bipod of the .25-06 out across the bonnet. (bonnet? A hat? I know this one but could not resist) I drew a bead and fired, and an instant later there was a massive crack as my brother fired too.

I immediately fell into the footwell, (what the hell is a footwell?)the quarter-bore's muzzle had been about a foot away from my head. After the ringing had subsided and I had finished yelling at my idiot brother, I could only begin to laugh as he had cracked his windscreen (I asume windshield?)from the centre all the way over to the A-pillar! What is a A-pillar?)

and the A-pillar is the first pillar on the side of the windshield, then as u go behind the front seats is the B-pillar, and the ones on the side of the rear window would be the C-pillar... we also call it the same in American...

My recent skeet trip with my buddy, I was getting used to the new "baseball bat" style thrower. I threw one that curved back towards him, and he led the thing almost past the imaginary line between us.

Red line represents path of clay, blue line represents where my friend was aiming. I damn near **** myself. Thank goodness he didn't shoot. I would only throw trap for him after that ****.

When I was in high school, a buddy and I were out in the woods shooting whatever we found or brought. We decide to go for a walk. We come around a corner in the trail and there is a pile of cement pieces someone dumped with a glass bottle sitting in the pile. The second we see it, my buddy blasts it with his 12 ga. We were about 10 feet from the pile, and something??? glass? cement? bb? comes back and cuts me right over the eye.

Sorry brother don't know where in America you live but in my State (West ..By God.. Texas) we call a pillar what you fluff up on a bed.

He's lucky he wasn't killed. I have a similar story of a woman who claimed to be an experienced rider and asked for the most "spirited" horse to ride.

The horse got spooked by a truck going over a cattle guard. The "experienced" rider put on the brakes full-bore, the horse came to a complete stop, and the rider went flying over the horse's head.

The horse decided to run again and hit her in the head with a hoof. Peeled her scalp completely over the back of her head.

My partner and i got a call to a apartment that was suppose to be empty was not. Another resident said she heard noise's in the apartment. So my partner and me go to search the unit front door was unlocked my partner was going in first. I had only worked with the guy a few times and he had told me had LE exp and military exp and had been doing security for awhile. So as he draw's his pistol a springfield xd 40 s&w, I hear a loud bang i see my partner going down and i sweep the area thinking he has been shot from somebody in the apartment i pull him out of the door way calling for police, emt and back up and start checking him for wounds as i'm watching the front door from behind a tree. My partner decides to tell me damn i shot myself in the foot. I look and ill be damned if he didnt shoot himself in the foot. Shot his big toe off. Back up arrived and we surrounded the apartment waited for police when they arrived they cleared the apartment found a cat and no sign of nobody else in the apartment. He was let go shortly after
