“All’s well that ends well” isn’t one of the rules of gun safety, at least so far as I know. Nor is, “If you can walk away from it, then it was good gun handling”. Maybe that does apply to rocketry though.
One round skipped off the ground just a few yards from the guy walking in front of the truck. I guess he had a memorable day.
It reminds me of a W.W II story in which an American unit was taking heavy artillery fire. Their commander, realizing that it was friendly fire, reassured his troops saying, “Don’t worry, Boys; those are our guns!” or something to that effect.
“All’s well that ends well” isn’t one of the rules of gun safety, but it is a frequent outcome of only violating one of the rules of gun safety rather than two or more simultaneously. It is usually followed up by me leaving the range rapidly if the person violating gun safety rules isn’t ejected immediately.
And if you think “Those silly Russians, that could never happen here”… Think again. http://gruntdoc.com/2008/06/f-16-takes-out-tyranical-suburban-sportscarforumscom.html
