My friend Dave works as the range safety officer at the local wildlife area. He should draw hazard pay the weekend before deer season opens. Saturday and Sunday, the range was packed and Dave had his hands full keeping everyone's muzzle pointed downrange. However, he told me, there was only one mishap all weekend. A man loaded his muzzleloader, then, thinking he was sliding the ramrod back into the rings under the barrel, slid it down the barrel instead. He took careful aim, and pulled the trigger and sent the bullet and ramrod downrange.
