The farmer bought it from the widow cheap, took it hunting and while he was loading it he closed the action and it went off. He lost three toes.
A couple weeks later, it was tossed in the fire.
There really are things that are just 'unlucky'.
Muzzle control. I would never aim any gun past anything. Willingly or accidentally. Willingly if I had to. They teach this in hunter safety school. To sum it up if the gun never gets pointed at anything wrong. I would never ever point at gun at my toes while loading it Lol.
