Put a new CO2 cannister in place, pointed the pistol in a relatively safe direction and fired to check if the mechanism was working. No magazine, but a BB had been left in the barrel; here's the unfortunate result:

Mental note: *Relatively safe* isn't good enough.

Rule #1 of firearm safety... consider all gun loaded until proven otherwise :bear:

At least no one was hurt and you know have a good reason to go shopping for that new monitor you've been lusting after...

This is a good reminder to always PROVE a gun safe before and after every use. I had a similar experience years ago; only my affected target was a hole in the wall which I can live with.

Although I agree do they even use the ACTS and PROVE gun safety method in Norway? I'm sure they have something similar. In Canada would many airgunners know? The PAL rated sure. Airsoft though?

Norwegians practice gun safety like other "civilized" countries. This would never have happened to me if I was handling an air gun or a powder burner, but nevertheless it's a reminder.

Bet the wife was impressed. Likely went over as well as when I put an arrow through the light switch in the living room. I am now upstairs shooting into my attic. I am reduced down to 30 feet. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Arrow through the light switch - ha ha!

The missus shoots herself, so I get some understanding; no sanctions for the time being.

Grandfather was Danish, grandmother a Finn, but I speak no type of Scandinavian language so you are WAY ahead of me....I was just having a little fun ;)

Most airsofters are pretty ignorant in this respect.
My two sons are fairly serious milsim players. Often when skirmishing (there is a great indoor facility in Edmonton) they'll attach a GoPro to one of their helmets. What you see would make you cry if these were real firemarms...most airsofters have no situational awareness whatsoever.

+100!

Some of them tends to check gun and/or zeroing sights by shooting over the heads in a no-play zone :shock:
