On the way home G said he remembered there was some Remington 30 carbine on the bench with the 223 , but never dawned on him the fellow with the 98 would not know or ask what ammo .
Glad I left , I like beer and a drink as much as anybody , but a group of people drinking heavy while handling firearms ain't for me .
Anything from stupidity to short fuses can happen , Kenneth
This Reminds me of a time a couple guys were sighting in muzzeloaders. Even worse with Beer is mixed with smokepoles. I left and heard later a guy ended up shooting his muzzeloader with the ramrod still in it. Glad I missed that!
Actually experienced that , no booze either .
Shortly after we married I introduced my stepson to muzzle loading . He was in his late twenties so I got him familiar with loading procedure and let him shoot load and shoot a few rds , then a local gun shop called and said my order was in .
So I told him I would be right back , he was in the military so I felt ok about leaving him for a few minutes , gun shop was three miles away .
As I pulled back into the driveway he was setting at the bench looking perplexed , so I asked what's up ?
He said he couldn't figure out what he had done with the ramrod .
So after looking around the bench and vehicles , I asked if he went in the house for anything . Said yes but only to the kitchen , so I went in to see if he had laid it down , possibly absent mindedly carried it in and laid it down .
Nothing , so I walked back to the bench and while pondering , I spotted what had happened .
I laughed and said , I SEE where it went , he said were ? I said you shot it out the barrel ! He got red faced and said I did not !
I laughed and said oh yes you did , look at the bulge in your barrel .
He could have been bought for a penny , then cussed cause he had just bought the gun and opening day was in two days . Then asked well were is the rod ? I laughed and said probally in pieces down range . Glad you didn't get hurt .
We looked and found a short piece with the brass end on it , but nothing else .
I loaned him mine and went and snagged me a optima , good excuse to upgrade from the wolf .
Those wolf's are some good shooters for an economy gun .
Didn't see any real gain , just a new toy .
