    The dang things are stupid expensive.  I had that squirrel dead in my scope too.  If he just had not come down the trunk of the tree.

    So stupid.  Second time too.

    Dang!  I admire a scientist who replicates his results.  You have proven that a pellet gun will take out a mirror.

    Glad it was not me ;)

    According to the Washington Hunter Safety training many accidental shootings happen next to the vehicle the hunter arrives or is leaving in. He/she is unloading the gun or thinks it is unloaded and discharges the weapon.

    ztrirffritz is correct. Returned to the truck from calling bobcats and fox. Set the wildcat down on the front passenger seat butt facing out the passenger door. Didn’t discharge the weapon prior to setting it down. Packed away the blind, call and other goodies. Reached down to grab the gun by the pistol grip with the right hand and the butt with my left.  Must have brushed or bumped the safety to fire. When I started to lift the gun up from the seat I touched the trigger and poof…. nice quarter inch round hole in the lower rear corner of the drivers side window. The tint film kept the glass from all falling out. Put the blue tape there to cover the hole and hold the shattered glass up and keep it from sliding down into the door panel as it was starting to rain. $96.00 lesson learned. Fortunately nothing worse happened. Now first thing that happens when I start to take down the blind is to make sure the gun is discharged.

    Startled the crap out of me when it fired! As my uncle was fond of telling us when we were younger. I said, “Gosh, golly and gee whizz!” all at once. Somehow it didn’t quite sound that way when it came out.

    I  crack open my sliding glass door to shoot rabbits eating in my garden.

    Well I washed the Windows the day before, thought I opened the slider glass door, nope! Rabbit in “X” hair, squeeze the trigger, BANG! Very loud noise and my .30 [email protected] fps, destroyed my slider glass door! $325.00 error! Guess who double checks the path of the pellet now?

    I ‘almost’ don’t feel so bad now. %^)  But they nail you for over 200 bucks for those heated remote control mirrors.   AUUGGGGG!

    Sometimes at night I will park my truck up the hill overlooking the hay field to see if any Hogs will come around, saw one moving around and picked my Texan up was going to rest it on the passenger door frame only to realize the window was still closed when I bumped it with the rifle muzzle, all I could think about was thank God I didn’t decide to take the bulldog it’s so short I would have braced it with my arm on the center console
