I was shooting my Remington 700 VSSF .223 yesterday at the range. I have owned this rifle since the mid 90's, never a problem one. I closed the bolt, rifle on safe. Ready to shoot, flip to fire and BOOM! Yes, my finger was out of the trigger guard. I know Remington has had legal issues with the Mod 700 old style safety. I took it for granted that "it can't happen to me" after literally hundreds of rounds fired in the field. Lesson learned here big time.
