you say you don't even know the details but want to jump on the bandwagon blaming Remington. Your first sentence said everything about your opinion that takes the validity of it and tosses it in the trash. There should NEVER BE A SINGLE ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE THAT EVEN PUTS A SCRATCH ON SOMEONE. For it to happen you have to be pointing a loaded gun at someone. Like is said too there are NO cases ive seen where a Remington went off all on its own. Most cases were while working the action. Rack your bolt with me standing in front of you and see what happens. Plain and simple Remington got a bad rap for this. Some guns did it no doubt. But it seems about everyone of them could be traced to someone that thought they knew how to get a 2lb trigger with one or shot there gun for 30 years and never once cleaned the trigger. Heck id bet a good many of those cases that 30 year old gun never had the stock taken off. shot deer season put away dirty in a closet till next year.
I can tell you without a doubt I can take a Winchester trigger and make it just as dangerous, I can take a weatherby, a timney ANY trigger and make it dangerous. Like drilling man said most of this was just part of a liberal anti gun propaganda display. Im sure not calling you a lier. If you would have been there and actually saw that gun go off and kills someone id listen. but something smells fishy. Someone made a big mistake and found out its easy to push the blame on to the gun manufacture.
To me its like suiting chev because you ran into a telephone pole when you knew dammed well if you aimed your truck at that pole you would hit it and get killed. Is it chevys fault that that truck didn't keep you from being stupid. Im sure old liberal ralph nator would convince someone it was. Just like the liberal anti gun people convince people that don't know better this was Remington's fault. Do you have a clue how many 700s have been sold that there has been absolute no problems with. Would our military trust a rifle to its navy seals, army and marine snipers that could go off all by it self.
Its no different then the idiots that same Glocks are dangerous because they go off when you pull the trigger. DA!
I allways pull the trigger a few times on my 1911s before it flip the safety off
I own quite a few glocks and other pistols without safetys. Most of them have such a terrible trigger that its tough to keep them on target while your pulling the trigger. But some idiot poorly trained barnie fife from [email protected]
@@ California gets out of his car and draws his gun with his finger on the trigger and jerks it hard enough for it to go off and a safety is going to fix that stupid
Same mentality is why every gun is stamped on the barrel that you must read the manual or you new car has stickers all over the sun visors warning you of the dangers you could encounter, the best laugh is a pack of cigarettes has to have a warning that there no good for you. America has gotten real stupid!! By the way sitting to close to that color tv can cause cancer! Maybe you should go back to black and white.
I never said it was on a table or how it happened, I don't know the details. What did happen an unexpected discharge killed him. Do you really think Remington spent millions of dollars fixing 700s for no reason. There was a tv special on the Rem 700 for this very reason, I think that prompted the recall. If you have heard of this happening for years why wouldn't you think there might be something to it? You should get a tv they have color now.
