What happens when stupid meets a gun! WARNING THIS IS VERY GRAPHIC

GRAPHIC: MAN THOUGHT STEEL-TOED BOOTS WOULD STOP A .45-CALIBER BULLET

Northwest Firearms

It doesn’t take a smart person to guess it would be a bad idea to shoot your steel-toed boot with a .45.
We can thank this guy with a grimace for teaching everyone how bad of an idea this was.

The images surfaced on a forum and they are extremely graphic, so proceed with caution.
“This guy and his co-workers were discussing whether a steel toe boot would withstand a round from a .45, so what do do you think would be the best way to test this theory? YUP, you guessed it. Good thing he wasn’t testing his hard hat.”

Based on the placement of the shot, it almost appears the shooter missed his boot’s steel-toe insert in his boot. This might be a blessing in disguise, preventing metal shrapnel from spreading throughout the foot.
Let this be a not-so-friendly reminder to practice gun safety.

Longtime SC distributor of guns, other outdoor goods is bankrupt

A slowdown in firearms sales is one reason the parent of Chapin-based Ellett Brothers said it was forced to file for bankruptcy.
A South Carolina distributor of guns and other outdoors supplies that was launched during the Great Depression filed for bankruptcy Monday, a few weeks after a financier alleged that the majority shareholder took about $189 million in loans out of the business.
SportsCo Holdings Inc., which owns Chapin-based Ellett Brothers and several other subsidiaries, said it plans to liquidate its holdings, citing excessive debt and inventory.
CEO Bradley Johnson said in a court filing that the company’s prediction that the Democrats would hold onto the White House in 2016 backfired after a projected jump in firearms sales didn’t materialize.

He also blamed SportCo’s downfall on “significant” disruptions within the outdoors retail industry in recent years, including the acquisition of Cabela’s by Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain’s bankruptcy and hurricanes that struck the Southeast U.S.
The Midlands company traces its roots to the 1933 founding of Ellett Brothers. SportCo, which is the holding company, has five distribution centers, including one each in Chapin and Newberry, and it employs about 320 workers, according to a bankruptcy filing.
The majority owner is Wellspring Capital Management, a New York private equity firm that’s bought the business in 2008 and is now facing a lawsuit over its handling of tens of millions of dollars in borrowed funds.
Prospect Capital Corp. is alleging that the $160 million in financing to provided Ellett Brothers in 2012 and 2013 was never invested in the business, according to the complaint it filed May 23 in Lexington County.

Finding and hiring a lawyer can be intimidating, especially if you’ve recently gone through a stressful experience, such as an injury.

Instead, Wellspring distributed $134 million and another $54.8 million, with most of the money going to the controlling shareholder. The payouts also included credit from other lenders, Prospect said.
The transfers “provided no value” to Ellett Brothers and its affilates while helping to contribute to “a complete financial collapse,” according to the lawsuit
“Since making the distributions … and despite a historic industrywide increase in sales, Ellett and its many subsidiaries have lost a substantial amount of their assets and business value,” Prospect Capital said.
Wellspring also collected $6 million in management fees from its South Carolina investment between 2009 and 2017, according to the lawsuit. The private equity firm could not be reached for immediate comment Monday.
SportsCo and its affilates sought protection from its creditors in Delaware, listing debts of between $100 million and $500 million and assets of less than $50 million. The companies plan to keep operating during the liquidation process.
The first hearing in the bankruptcy case is scheduled for Tuesday.
