Murphy's law

Postby bigsteve » Sat Nov 24, 2018 1:26 pm

Well I have been hunting a buck for 3 years having never laid eyes on him till this morning he came following a doe 70 yds broad side I settled the crosshair behind his shoulder squeezed the trigger and the worst sound in the world no boom A click evidently my firing pin had fouled as a result of dirt when I stumbled and stuck the barrel in the dirt and punched the dirt out it went down the pin chamber all the luck Cleaned now

Oh Steve, that’s a sick feeling for sure, but it’s early. I bet you’ll be showing us what he looks like soon.

We all have those moments. But you have seen him now, and if he is chasing he may get careless.
