    Pretty old to be getting a Darwin Award.

    Pulling the cap on a front stuffer is a no brainer.

    The sad part is the gun will get the blame in some quarters.

    Pretty sad isn't it. Just because he didn't remove his primer. I also have had accidents that I could have prevented so know how it happens. Don't take any shortcuts when handling guns! It's something that you have to train yourself to do. Don't let anything come before your safety. Jackie B.

    It is the older shooters who seem to be the most dangerous. Remember the skeet shooter accident at that gun club? They came from an age when safety issues weren't hammered into them, and it was considered un-manly to even bring the subject up. I dog handle for DFG pheasant hunts, and my own experience confirms this. The kids are mostly nearly paranoid about safety, the older adults sloppy and dangerous. This proves to me the value of early and consistent training.

    Wireguy: there's some truth in what you say, but I don't think it's so much a matter of early training. Being a senior vet myself, I have seen many older shooters ( and some not-so-old) that have just plain lost it! Senility, dementia, Alzheimers, whatever, they just don't have the mental focus to safely handle a firearm. Many, who aren't even permitted to drive a car, are allowed without any restrictions to shoot a gun.

    We have a shooter like that at our club, and I don't see any solution other than to just tell him he can't shoot at our club anymore.

    Bill, Yes, my E-Bay store is still SHOOTING SHIRTS BY FRAN,

    I'm now bringing in winter long sleeve shirts and will be putting on shoulder pads and shooting designs on for right and left hand shooters and women's and youth shirts also.

    I've put a lot of the summer shirts on sale too.

    I'm looking forward to supplying shooters with custom shirts made especially for them for the upcoming winter season.

    Thanks,

    FRAN
