    Well just as a quick update. The police are only charging him with reckless use of a firearm. Nothing about fleeing the scene of a crime. And it looks like we may be out of pocket wages, insurance excess and everything else.

    Can you take a civil case against him for your expenses?

    Possibly but honestly I do not think my father could deal with it. He's had to cope with a lot and this really was the straw that broke the camel's back

    The roar is apon us and yet people you don't need to go hunting to get shot.... Not a good look considering the media's stance on firearms at the moment

    thank you for clearing the issue up.Iwill retract my comments re GC .like others i have nought but condemnation for the "nut behind the butt".hmmmm-what if a routine traffic stop had unearthed this wee treasure trove =id bet my bottom dollar all hell would have ensued.
    to the passenger -Im pleased you escaped injury =to the fool -i sincerely hope the judge throws the whole bloody legal library at you cause youre a disgrace to the firearms owning fraternity-you cant even abide by 7 simple rules and put public lives in danger.wow this is like an atomic reactor for the ant gun brigade.-endless fuel for them.

    To confirm, he may of had the gun in the back seat and tried to reach over for it, probably lucky he didnt blow his own head off or have passengers.
    As for photos, lets see if this works as i have tried from my mobile and i couldnt.
    I have no issue against firearms, just the reckless ones who seem to pass getting their FAL.

    I never thought it was against the law to "flee the scene of a crime", unless you fail to stop and see if anyone is injured after a car accident.

    What was it - looks like several holes

    He is liable for your damage - frankly its the least he could do is pay for it all

    The irony of all of this is that the "fit and proper person test" administered by the Police somehow lets all of this firearms-related misfortune continue to happen to add fuel to their argument to ban guns.

    The cynic in me sees the PNHQ end game as "do nothing that we are meant too, and eventually we won't have to do anything".
