    How incredibly STUPID ! Sounds like HE needs to take a Gun Safety Course BEFORE he tries to teach ANYONE, ANYTHING, about Firearms. The DUFUSS is extremely lucky it was HIS hand and leg, and not HIS HEAD, or worse yet, HERS !!!! What's the FIRST rule of Firearm Safety > Treat every Firearm as if it were LOADED. Take NOTE OF THAT, Mr. Jacob Cherry.......
