Until yesterday I didn't knew that our hobby is so dangerous.
Boltgun fired by accident when I was cleaning mouldlines :shock:

Modellers by the hundred die every year from blood loss. Very dangerous business, only for the truly brave.

First, and most important lesson regarding firearms, always check them clear and unloaded before dicking around with 'em...
it's always the 'unloaded' weapon that'll kill yer!

Funny thing is that I knew that when I was in the army service. But that was 27 years ago. And we haven't had boltguns back then. :xd:

Jokes aside, it was real hobby accident. It hapoened when I was drilling boltgun barrel.

Not first and I believe not the last hobby injury. But I thought it was funny coincidence.

Love it, positive take on amputating yer finger!
In Fred Karno's Army we called it an ND (negligent discharge). Civvies would be more than a tad underwhelmed, at how many times a squaddie's 'empty' popgun, went... BANG!
