Another KSG Hand Accident/Negligent Discharge With Injury

    TheGunWriter posted up a reader’s photo of his hand after a discharge in which his hand was in the way. Likely the result of vigorous pumping and firing without thinking, the damage to the hand is catastrophic (my wife is an OT, she said he would be lucky to regain use of his thumb, pointer, and middle fingers).

    This is the second discharge that has affected the hand of a KSG shooter, the previous incident the result of a broken ProMag vertical foregrip. The KSG’s bullpup design has significant benefits in terms of balance, length, and usability in a confined space. On the flip side, it also means the hand of the shooter can physically get in front of the muzzle.
