A malfunction alright. In the brain housing group.

Call it what it is, a dumb-dumb wound.

You know, if you fouled up that bad, it would be best just to own it and make it a teaching moment, cause nobody is going to buy it anyway......

Tell it like it is: " I was being a dumbass and violated the most basic safety precautions and I blew my freaking thumb off."

There is no excuse for shooting something you didn't intend to shoot. The gun doesn't know the difference in a target and a ***hole.

What's funny is, after the surgery to reattach what was left of his thumb, they were all at the dinner table discussing it. The YOUNGEST pipes up about never let anything in front of the bbl you don't intend to shoot!

At least the kid knows...

Obviously the kids smarter than the old man...it was a VERY valuable teaching moment.

even my youngest popped off before i could, he said "What the "H" was his thumb doing IN FRONT of the barrel!?!?!?"
