    a mate of mine once brought an old 30-30 winchester at a gun show (years ago) he was cycleing the action and dry fireing the rifle the rifle was checked clear but he didn’t see the follower wasn’t there after dry fireing 5 or 6 times a round that was stuck in the tube mag dislodged fed into the chamber and when he pulled the trigger the rifle discharged lucky he was pointing the rifle in a safe direction and the round didn’t go anywhere unsafe
    I've nearly done the same with a BSA sportsman 15 .22lr, luckily I noticed the round chamber.
    A mate had a round jammed in his Benelli m2 after duck shooting down the coast, if my mates floor wasn't concrete he'd have had a nice new underfloor ventilation

    Yes he went to the cops cos he knew he was in the do do, but did he get in contact with the owner of the damaged car to repair the damage that he caused? Perhaps MSSPNZ can answer that. If he has not sorted full repairs either in person or via the insirance company, then in my view, he has not taken full responsibility, merely tried to protect his own arse...

    We are in Canterbury and our insurance company has been great to deal with after the quakes. (AA insurance) Maybe we got lucky. But that tit needs to sort the damage he caused.

    Hey. Nope no contact from him at all. My dad isn't happy. Insurance were beggars and dad will be making sure the car is as it was. Blackwells have been superb here in Chch for accomadating him. Apparently holding the panels for me to frame too a bit of "we don't know how lucky we are" lyrics to go with it i think.
    Sadly they won't replace the leather seats as it won't match so we will be looking for a company that will source or repair the minor but obvious damage to once pristine seats.

    We have heard nothing more from police or anything at all from the perpetrator.

    Will hopefully get more information in the coming weeks.

    Would be nice to see if anyone here knows him. An apology would be nice. I'm not angry it happened. Shit happens. I'm annoyed he didn't man up and stay to sort it out face to face.

    Court Date

    We have a court date !
    this Friday (12th May 2017)
    Not sure on a court room yet but will be in the Christchurch District court.
    I am in touch now with Victim support (apparently the police never filed for us to be kept informed or looked after) so it was all on our own back, to get the court room and name to go and publicly view the matter and see what he will be charged with.

    So here is hoping i can bring the outcome to the thread.

    Well I have to be honest and point out that the media never lets the truth get in the way of a good story. I mean they have to twist it up to make guns look bad somehow........If they can twist it for a little more drama they will, regardless of the truth...Should be called stuff''d or stuff all as that is about the result and/or how much truth is usually involved...

    This just gets worse as far as I am concerned. It appears as though his intent was to walk into the shop with a loaded firearm and from what has happened he most certainly is not a well disciplined individual in his handling of firearms as the bloody thing was loaded when it should not have been loaded and at the time the incident occurred he has put his fingers on the trigger and applied pressure. So what did the judge have to say about the idiot when passing judgement? I am sure we can all make mistakes but this bugger has made too many to keep his Firearms License in my opinion. In his actions he has failed to follow the code (yes I know the code is not law and it is only there for our guidance) and he has blatantly ignored rules 1,2,3 and 6.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
