ST. PAUL (CN) – An attorney claims that a pistol he bought from Cabela’s became “fully automatic” at a firing range, “uncontrollably spraying 9mm bullets.”
Robert Gardner claims that the outdoor catalogue store has failed to inspect the “aged” Steyr pistol he bought, and sent a dangerous “machine gun.”
Gardner says he took the weapon to Steyr Arms, which replaced its trigger bar assembly.
Gardner says Cabela’s did not tell him it had acquired the gun from an aged inventory. He seeks damages for negligence, consumer fraud and deceptive trade. Gardner, an attorney, filed the complaint pro se in Ramsey County Court.
