The shooters don't make the piece of junk, nor do they know it is a piece of junk when they buy it.Shooters ought to be able assume that the "piece of junk" will not blow up in their hands. That is not the shooters' responsibility. That is the responsibility of the manufacturers, the guns and the ammo. You're lucky no one got hurt or maimed.langenc said:I guess everone would like to try a 597. I dont believe this is the first posting like this-and many describing all kinds of feeding, loading and extraction problems. At some point shooters have to assume some responsibility for buying a piece of junk.
Just trying to tell the gentleman how to preserve his rights. I see nothing wrong with that. Sure, send the gun back to the manufacturer, and they'll be pleased to destroy it, and send the gentleman a new gun, to which he is entitled anyway. Maybe they'll even throw in a couple boxes of ammo for his trouble. Don't know about you Sir, but most people do not enjoy being screwed, at least like that.smoky said:That is what the US needs.... more people like yourself.
I think people on this forum are confusing the types of lawsuits brought against gun manufacturers, which is the source of disagreement here. The lawsuits for the sole purpose of litigating the gun manufacturers out of business are the baseless, frivolous suits brought against the manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers when the product (gun) has been used in the manner for which it was designed, and it functioned properly. I have successfully defended wholesalers/retailer against this type of frivolous lawsuit.vicg said:Sue Sue Sue it's the American way. No politician will put the gun companies out of business quicker.
Please go back and re-read my original post. Did I say "sue?" No, I said "go see a lawyer."vicg said:No one is confused here, I don't think.
No one was hurt. What are you going to sue for? Because you MAY have been hurt? It could have been numerous factors, not necessarily a defective rifle. Again, no one lost an eye or died.
Be a man with self respect and character and simply move on.
