A WASHINGTON musician who ordered a flat-screen TV from Amazon.com was shocked to receive a semiautomatic assault rifle instead.
38yr old Seth Horvitz purchased the 39 inch Tv from a third party seller.
But when the box arrived he thought it was just a bit small to contain a TV. He thought he had just received accessories.
But when he opened it, he found a Sig Sauer military-style rifle. He says he had never held a gun before he felt the trigger of the rifle.

An invoice showed that the gun was intended for delivery to a firearms dealer in Pennsylvania. Mr Horvitz called police, who took the gun and are investigating how the mistaken shipment occurred.

Geeze thats a bit a f*** up and lucky it didnt go to a child or someone insane as this could have become a nightmare

Mr. Horvitz apparently decided to keep the weapon afterall when it was discovered that the rifle in fact got basic cable and had an HDMI hookup for a dvd player.
