Ever seen a gun being shot? I mean literally?

“PooFire” was using his car as a barrier to practice shooting over (NOT a good idea) with his AR-15 but forgot his revolver was placed on the car roof. His S&W Model 442 Airweight took a 5.56mm bullet to the chamber.

He knows what he did was idiotic, and as someone at AR15.com said, he has balls of steel posting it on the internet. So don’t mock him for it!

Thanks to Jay for the link.

    Just a dumb story from last summer:
    A buddy of mine was firing his dad's WW2 bringback (an Ortgies .32) that he had sold me. He had never fired a semi automatic before, and crossed his thumbs. The sear carved a nice groove in his thumb. Sadly this also tophatted the spent shell. He's bleeding like a stuck pig, and can't grip the slide to clear it and make the gun safe because it is too slippery with blood. I can't help due to my hands looking like q-tips from the previous day's attempt at burning them off. We finally secure the arm and walk back to the cars. He looks for a towel to wipe the gun off. I tell him 'nah, leave it. You never know when someone else's DNA on your gun will come in handy' At least we had a nice back stop.
