    Went there Saturday. Was told his arm was injured bad enough to go to the Hospital. Hope he is OK. Befor the Crap starts I don't know what brand of gun it was.

    Was told Management was going to check his loud shells before it blew up. Allen

    It doesn't matter what type of gun it was.

    Dennis is doing fine. He will need surgery for nerve damage when the swelling from the surgery to repair his severed artery receeds. He is anxious to return to the gun club to continue his sport. Jimmy Borum

    A quote from Dennis, via email, to the president of the gun club:"At this time I would like to thank each and everyone at the Amarillo Gun Club for there help and support. I most likely wouldn't be here if it wasn't for all help and care that I received after the accident. You all are the greatest in my book.
    Thanks"

    Where did any of you see that he was using reloads. I would bet that even if he was, an obstruction would most likely be the cause. Minor fluctuations in powder drop more than likely would not cause a barrel to fail. Now, a double dose of powder because of loader error from a malfunction or distraction while loading may do this. Before we all place blame lets find out the true facts from actual management, or better yet the actual injured individual. No need to know what gun he was using. Does not matter until you know what caused the incident.

    Update: I was typing this before I seen joe90t's post.

    I hope the shooter is able to recover 100% and this was a fluke accident. It also sounds like the folks at the club had things well in hand and took care of him as best they could. Good on you folks for being so attentive.

    Now, please tell us he was shooting a K-80 and reloading on a P&W. This way everyone can pop in and tell us why this happened.

    One of these days it will be a remington with a factory shell but so far so good. Hope he has a full recovery. Scary when things happen and it is human nature to want details. Jeff

    HMB, why do you care?

    I hope he recovers quickly. Nerve and artery damage is no small thing. I'm glad he received good treatment quickly. Here's to a full recovery!
