    Tragic accident

    I know this is not in NZ but is relevant to all of us. The importance of following the firearm laws which in this case what was behind the deer they were shooting. They where hunting legally with their red tag but the consequences are tragic for the lives it has ruined, one of which has barely started.

    That is tragic in the extreme.
    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

    The neighbours on the adjacent life sentence block had a homekill guy in to process two steers.

    About three months later, their neighbours were on the roof of their house and noticed a fresh bullet hole through their flue as it exited the roof. The path of the bullet travel indicated it came from the next door paddock..
    We know it was a centrefire so some serious incompetence there.

    It is a God-like power we have when using a firearm. Unforgivable mistakes are immanent if you're not constantly staying on top of your 7 rules.

    NO SUCH THING AS ACCIDENTS
