</a>  This one was worse. A woman lost an arm when she fired a 150 year old muzzleloader that was loaded with an old charge. The owner had only primed the pan, believing it was unloaded.

 Check all muzzleloaders for a load with the ramrod, soon as you pick them up.

 This article also gives you a pretty good idea of how Canadian police and media think.

  Thanks for your post. I ,too,Have a story to tell wht I DO NOT fire any one elses firearm. I read one of the CAST BULLET"Sgurus articles afew years back where this "expert told about putting additional lube on the noses of cast bullets.I had to try it ,after all thi was from the mouth of the chief guru.Weell, I was having all sorts of problems keeping my shots on yhe paper and I noticed that I was getting a lot of grease on my necks of my cases. The next shot I blew the extracter off of my Springfield, blew the scope off wedged up the bolt , sprained my thumb and filled my face with bit of brass and powder. Iwaswearing safety glasses so I wasn't seriously injured.
Apparentlly I had gotten enough lube on the neck of my brsaa that it locked the neck from expanding and the rest is hitory
 I decided that if I would do such a foolish trick ,how do I know what others would do? I DO NOT fire any one elses firearm nor do I let them fire minne.PERIOD!

No one is immune, I have a few "belted" .40 S&W brass sitting on my shelf to remind me TO PAY THE #### ATTENTION!! Don't tell me John Browning didn't design one tough semi-auto.
