JUDGE REJECTS CLAIM THAT PISTOL DIDN'T HAVE ADEQUATE WARNINGS:

. . . On Aug. 20, a judge ruled that Smith & Wesson wasn't to blame for an incident that caused a shooter to lose a finger (Foltz v. Smith & Wesson Corp.), reports Texas Lawyer magazine. In 2006, Roger Foltz was firing his .460 revolver and placed his finger between the cylinder and the back of the barrel. When he fired, the hot, pressurized gasses escaped in the area where he had placed his finger and partially amputated it. Smith & Wesson successfully argued the safety manual included with the pistol specifically and sufficiently warned users against placing their fingers where Foltz placed his. According to the court, makers and sellers of firearms have no duty to warn of the obvious dangers of owning or selling a handgun.

It sounds like there is sufficient warning... so they did their part. That guy needs to read some info before he goes out to shoot. Not as dumb as the lady who sued cuz the coffee she spilled was hot... but its close
