Man pulls shotgun on a bunch of boaters. The gun misfires!!!
Yesterday at Lake Tenkiller in NE Ok about 100 boats were rafted up in various rows. Some Dumb SOB was trying to anchor a 50' houseboat and the wind kept pushing him into us. After Three times of this crap and us protecting our boats from major damage we had had it. We screemed at him to take his piece of crap houseboat away from us before he hurt someone or damaged a boat. As he was leaving he did hit the front of a 32 Baja and knocked a guy off into the water. Need less to say that just escalalated the problem and he pulled into the back of the cove after more words were exchanged. After almost hitting some more boats he turned around and started back by us. This time he pulled a 410 shotgun and started aiming it around at the crowed. He loaded it, and pulled the trigger. It did not fire. Fortunally we were with some Okla State Troopers and thay called for Help from the lake patrol. When they arrived he was arrested and taken to Jail. It was nice to see something nice happed to him after all the mayhem he caused and started. The reason the gun misfired was that the primer was damp. We later found out that he had tried to fire the gun and it had some sort of flare in it. There were lots of familys with kids out there including myself. When we saw the gun we yelled at everyone to get down. It was really scary seeing someone with a gun at the lake where we were expecting to have a fun day.
I did not know if anyone else was out there this weekend. Hope everyone else's weekend was not as eventful.
Peace & grace be to this place.
........ God bless the troops, always! :)
He is lucky he didn't get shot back at, especially with troopers around. I always carry, even when boating, this nut-job needs to be put away for a long time. People like him are what makes reasonable gun owners look bad. Thanks to him some nanny political group just got their fodder to make legal gun owner more constricted.
You are right!! My buddy did have his pistol with him but it happened so fast that the guy was gone on by by the time he got to it. If the gun had not misfired, it would have caused more commotion and I would assume the he would return fire not knowing it was a flare gun. He probably would have been shot.
Damn, man. I hate to hear that. I'm suprised he didn't get shot. The only thing bad would have been the paperwork... I'm glad you guys are OK.
Glad no one was hurt!!! Idiots like that need to be put away for a long time!!
Fountain38- was your friend (carrying) one of the Troopers eyezlee mentioned??
An exciting weekend , ya'll better spend more time at a Non-aggressive lake like EUFAULA!! Rafting is not needed here.
is there a story behind the name of the lake" TENKILLER "
