Man Killed Testing ’21-Foot Rule’

#1

Post by AndyC » Fri Mar 22, 2019 10:46 am

Spencer Warren told investigators he and Splichal has been debating the “21-foot rule” and were going to see how close Splichal could get to Warren before Warren could fire his gun. Warren says he emptied his .357 revolver but did not fully clear it. When Splichal lunged toward him to test the theory, Warren squeezed the trigger twice, firing 1 round into Splichal’s chest.

How do you "empty" but not "fully clear" a revolver? Asking for a moron in Georgia.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

I hope LE and prosecutors don't buy his story, since it's impossible.

Maybe he should have run a little faster.

I am pretty sure it had one... that story is from last summer. The original story claimed that 3 different people checked it... in that version of the story it's just Mas saying he missed it.

The same way I shot a hole in my bedroom ceiling in 1997 with my Model 29 .44 mag. I dumped the rounds into my hand, said to myself, “yeah, that looks like 6”, and started single-action dry-firing the gun next to my left ear.

It was a bad move.

Lesson learned. I’ve never again acted like a ninny with a firearm. I recall a thread on this site a long time ago......heck, it may even have been me who started it.....asking how many of us had ever had a ND. The number is higher than you would expect.

Where this moron went wrong was in agreeing to point a firearm at another human being for any other reason than trying to shoot him....or making ready to do so. I would personally feel weird doing that, even with a blue plastic dummy gun. I just won’t do it. The moron in the article should have either.

FIRST TWO RULES OF GUN SAFETY:
1. All firearms are loaded, all the time.
2. Never point a firearm at something you’re not willing to destroy.

He violated both. Even my own unbelievable dumb ND happened with the pistol pointed in a safe direction.
