Mikail Kalashnikov has passed away. Sad day.

God bless that man for creating such a fabulous weapon (even though it was used by communists).

I'm currently trapped in my house because of all of the snow.

Pretty bored, just had to make the decision to almost completely cut someone out of my life/cease to be concerned about them

Police in San Francisco say a teen robbery suspect was accidentally killed by his alleged accomplice when a bullet from the latter's gun struck the former after ricocheting off their victim's face.

Authorities say 16-year-old Clifton Chatman was among a group of muggers who surrounded the unnamed victim on the night of December 14 and demanded his cellphone.

One of the robbers pulled out a handgun while the others went through the victim's belongings in search of other valuables.

Though the victim had complied with all his assailants' demands, the teen holding the gun shot him anyway.

However, in a suprising twist of fate, the bullet fired at the man bounced off his face and reportedly struck Chatman, killing him on the spot.

The teens quickly dispersed, leaving both the victim and Chatman at the crime scene.

Officers arrived shortly thereafter and transported the victim to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for his injuries and released.

Chatman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The alleged shooter, who is also 16, has since been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted robbery. His name is being withheld because he's a juvenile.

I've heard of .22 rounds bouncing off thick jackets or multiple layers of clothes, but a bullet that bounces off bare human skin? LOL

In that article it doesn't say it ricocheted off of his bare skin just off of his face. I imagine it glanced off of the side of his skull and hit the other mugger (who were standing on all sides at the time) which is perfectly plausible for a .22, and even much bigger stuff.

Thinking about "borrowing" the rubber buttpad my buddy bought for his 91/30 but didn't like, because my M44 feels a bit too short


On a related note, I really wish my Parker Hale was as cheap to shoot as the Mosin; it is quickly becoming my favorite bolt-action rifle, and it sucks that it's so expensive to shoot
