I saw a story about this with video this morning on NBC.

Do you think Wulfmann has one of these? You don't have to touch the trigger for an A.D. to happen. [smilie=011.gif]

I have two of them in case I need to have one of those accidents that takes out a boosting boyfriend at 500 meters. [smilie=011.gif] [smilie=011.gif]

Why officer, what are the odds??? [smilie=popcorn.gif] [smilie=popcorn.gif]

Truth is I never use a safety on my bolt guns. I open the bolt if I am not going to pull the trigger.
If I were to ever hunt (way too lazy) I would use a Mauser not one of my heavier R-700 snipers.

This came up about 10 years ago and I tried every way possible to get either of my R-700s to AD (no ammo, snap cap) but mine will not do that.

This however, does not change the fact anyone owning a Glock is in grave danger as is anyone in the vicinity [smilie=pdt_xtremez_13.gif]

My goodness! My right foot is in constant danger!

But really, lots of the target rifles we use have the trigger on the edge of destruction. My savage has a professionally installed Rifle Basix trigger. If you close the bolt quickly on an empty chamber, the hammer drops every time. But on the range, There's a tight-fitting round in the chamber when I s-l-o-w-l-y close the bolt, and it's not a problem. The rifle is on the line, aimed at the target, before a round ever goes into the chamber. Occasionally we get a "slam fire," and the competitor has to take the score of where ever the bullet strikes.

Any trigger that's adjusted too lightly will slam-fire occasionally, or even all the time.
