At least it was the car that took the pellets and not a neighbor, loved one, or pet in the face.
Sore one all the same, well for that priceless 68 Firebird anyhoo.
I think you need to be dead to receive "The Darwin Award", not much mild about that state of affairs.
Shame about the car, hope you managed to restore her to her former glory without to much cost.
At the time I was fully trained in gun safety. However even then things can happen and my guard was down, but all the while knowing no one else was
within a mile of my location which is why I let my guard down. I knew after that that, that isn't ever a good idea. Gun was aimed down at the ground
but ricocheted from the ground in the line of the car.
I was already a master certified auto body repair and refinisher at that age so fixing the car was only an annoyance at that point. The gun issue did
bother me a lot so I stayed away from them for a few years.
I sold that car cheap a few years later which I am regretting having done and that bothers me every day now. I can live with that mistake though.
If anyone had been with me that day they would have been walking 10 feet behind me. I knew how to keep other people from harm with guns. I learned a
very special kind of gun safety at a very young age.
I really regret losing that car.
