    You know, there's a famous anti gunner argument, usually about full autos, that always ends with "by that logic you think that private citizens should be able to own nukes"

    Its a good thing we cant own nukes.

    Just what I was thinking. There's a million $ to be made if someone can create a totally safe gun cleaning kit. States like CA would mandate it.[rofl]

    I blame gun manufacturers. By using the famous "Ruger Loophole" where they only print one paragraph of safety information on the barrels and slides of their guns, manufacturers get around common sense safety marking. Any reasonable person would agree that they should, at a minimum, print the entire transcript from the NRA's Basic Pistol Safety course on the side of every gun.

    Don't know which end the boolats come out of? Read the slide.

    Not sure if memory is the best way to ensure a gun is clear? Read the slide.

    Are you supposed to point the muzzle at something you intend to destroy or at something you don't intend to destroy? Read the slide.

    (Boom)Oh, dam it I just shot myself. (Boom) Oh, dam it I just shot myself again...

    Well, at least he didn't shoot himself twice while cleaning it!

    All this and his pistol is now even more dirty than it was before![rofl]

    Can you say desk pop![smile]

    I must not be cleaning mine right. Nobody ever gets shot.


    On a side note I was at a neighbors house many years ago and noticed he had a broken window. I asked what happened and he said someone threw a handful of rocks at it.
    Later that day I saw 3 holes in his refrigerator freezer door. I asked his girlfriend what that was and she said his gun went off when he was cleaning it. It was a lever action 30-30. The holes lined up with his broken window.

    It was from the inside to outside. My guess , which is probably accurate, is he was drunk, shot the fridge 3 times and blamed it on a cleaning accident.

    So then he shot the refrigerator three times then turned around and shot the window three times? Your man can party! You should explain to him how cleaning works.

    Or he couldn't find a bottle opener for the beer and decided to try trick shots?

    OK, so the fridge was shot through and through and the bullet(s) then broke the window?

    Struggling with this one 'cause usually there's a wall behind the fridge but I think I get it now.

    Must have been a really annoying fridge. Probably deserved it.

    I'm going to have the same kind of accident when I feel dementia coming on.

    I'd want something a bit bigger than a .22, just to make sure the job got done properly.

    There have been times, when the fridge is full of my wife's leftovers, that I have considered a full mag dump at the Kenmore. It is for the children. But then I thought " If every round hit that meatloaf, no one could tell the difference"
