DO you know stupid?
I had a table yesterday at the XXXX ( name omitted to protect the stupid). gun show. The guy next to me had 3 Crossman M1 carbines for sale. He wanted to show a buyer that they would shoot but had very little power. #1 was cocked and he put his finger over the muzzle and shot the gun. #2 was cocked and he put his finger over the muzzle and shot the gun. #3 was cocked and he put his finger over the muzzle and shot the gun…. he did not know the gun was loaded!! The bb entered his finger and he had to pick it out. Had a paper towel wrapped around the finger to get the bleeding stopped.
Did you ever wonder why we want all airguns to be tied and no cocking or firing the guns in the show?

That will be a sore finger for a few days.
Gun Safety Rule 1. ALWAYS treat a gun as if it is loaded.
