In it, the unnamed guy prefaced it all explaining that he lives in the UK and that it was an air rifle, so “this was bad, but not as bad as it could've been across the pond”
He explained that he is quite an experienced outdoorsman and 3 years ago purchased an air rifle for target practice.
He revealed he and a girl named Ellie had planned a hike for their first date, but when she found out about his air rifle, she wanted to go shooting instead.
The man continued: “I showed her the basics of firearm safety, then we got shooting (important detail, Ellie is an awful shot).”
Next, he said he needed to use the toilet, so left the area for a while. On his return, he didn’t hear any shots and presumed Ellie wasn’t currently shooting, so he cut across the area they were shooting in to get back quicker.
He wrote: “I cut across the range to get back quicker. Didn't occur to me that she was reloading.
