    Seems like rimfire ammo offers more opportunity for loose-in-the-box bangs.

    Sometimes bizarre things happen. Even if one did go off like this one the bullet could not hurt you (possible light wounds from case shrapnel).
    Odds about the same as winning the lottery.

    Many here will find this 25 minute video very emotional. I recommend valium or, for our KY members, white lightning to ameliorate the distress.
