This case involves a handgun malfunction. The plaintiff rented a small handgun produced by a prominent gun manufacturer at a shooting range. He went onto a lane and loaded several rounds of ammunition into the weapon’s magazine. He fired several rounds, before feeling an impact to his face after shooting another round. The gun slide split in half, and a piece of the slide hit him in the eye. The Plaintiff suffered serious injuries from the accident, which required significant reconstructive surgery. In addition, the Plaintiff also suffered permanent vision loss in the affected eye. Upon inspection, a flaw was discovered that most likely occurred the stamping process which was not fixed by thermal treating procedures during the manufacturing of the firearm.
