This idiot paid a hefty price
According to police, Stephen J. Brumby, 14, and his dad, William C. Brumby, 64, were practicing in a shooting lane against a wall when the accident took place.
“After firing a round, the spent shell casing struck the wall causing it to deflect and fall into the back of (the elder) Mr. Brumby’s shirt. Brumby then used his right hand, which was holding the handgun, in an attempt to remove the casing. While doing so, he inadvertently pointed the firearm directly behind him and accidently [sic] fired,” a police statement reads.
Now he gets to live with the guilt of killing his son, simply because he was a goddamn pussy and couldn't control where his firearm was pointed.
Some EFFing ambulance chaser will get the family to sue the range blaming the wall for causing the ricochet/deflection.
I've had plenty of hot cases hit me. I've never felt the need to panic and remove it.
That just sucks.
Not the first time I've heard of hot casings being blamed for a lack of muzzle and trigger discipline turning deadly.
Hot brass down your clothing is going to happen to everyone eventually.
I need to discuss this with everyone I ever introduce to shooting.
