story 1 : NEVER HAVE FIRE IN STAND!!!!
story 2 : HEY VERN YOU LOOK LIKE A DEER BANG :>(
story one : you'd think after being in this world for 84 years the guy would have better sense. He must have had the gas on for awhile in an enclosed area before he tried to light it to have that happen to him.
story two: there is almost no such thing as a gun accident. I'm tired of reports of accidentally shot my mom, brother , neighbor or whatever while cleaning a gun. If you are properly educated in gun safety and hunting safety these things cannot happen. They need to report this as careless gun handling or negligence at least, otherwise it makes the uninformed think guns are more dangerous than they are,and adds more fodder for the anti gun peeps. It's a rare thing at best for a weapon to fire without someone pulling the trigger and even if it did it shoud not have been pointed in the direction where it could hurt someone unitentionally. I have been handling guns for 52 years with never an incident because I was taught right at 10 years old.
