This kind of accident happens when people become COMFORTABLE. Never forget what you have in your hands when holding a gun.

What are you saying that firearms shouldn't be regulated by the ATF but by OSHA?

I'm just wondering how in fact he ended up shooting himself, I don't know if he's stupid but stupid people have stupid bad luck. Second thought if the gun wasn't pointing at him he probably wouldn't have shot himself...

When he was racking the slide to chamber a round I bet his finger was on the trigger. That's my guess anyway.

The most entertaining part of this thread was the comments posted below the story..."lesbian packing hollow point"...that was some funny stuff.

Also liked the advise of "keep your booger hooker off the bang switch".

Interesting, my Drill Sergeant called them "dick skinners" not "booger hookers".

Even funnier, while stationed in Korea 94 I met a PFC Richard Skinner. His Drill must have used the same phrase. Poor Bastard.

Tack

Nice to meet you, I'm Gaylord Focker.

I got a friend at work named Richard Pounders. If he gets too mouthy you can guess where I take the conversation.
