    Ha! Two things came to mind as I watched the video:

    1. I'm guessing the truck owner wanted it covered under warranty.
    2. I'd never want that tech working on my truck. I was surprised how many times he tossed the shifter unit around while it dangled and pulled on the wiring harness. I try to not let any components dangle by the wiring harness when I'm doing work.

    Discharging a weapon inside the truck. I bet that act of utter stupidity was a bit frightening.

    Right-handed shooter. Tried to shoot himself (herself?) in the foot. Good tech. Fully jacketed bullet showed no expansion.

    Saw other clues to give me more ideas about it but you should get the idea.

    I guess the truck owner & maybe passenger must've been wearing some pretty heavy pants, or had the stains on the seats cleaned prior to dropping the truck off. A negligent discharge in the enclosed cab of a truck must've been pretty rude lol, I know it definitely would've scared the crap outta me. Didn't look like a .22, seemed too big, maybe a .380 from their EDC?

    I thought it looked like .22LR.

    Either way - owner is lucky he's not injured and/or in jail. In NY that would be an instant felony. Too little damage to be a 9mm/380.

    maybe it's a .25.... thats a relatively popular CCW caliber.
