Doing well, just slight numbness in the pinky, but otherwise full mobility and usage. I know the pic are sketchy but 1 shows the 12" scar, the other shows the indention where the muscle mass is missing.

I'm glad your arm is healing,that was a nasty wound.
Thanks for the post, no matter how safe we might think we are handling guns ,we can all have a moment of distraction like you did.

Thanks for sharing, major cudos for that. This just goes to show that the 3 rules will work if we religiously observe them. It also illustrates that only a seconds loss of focus when we have a firearm in-hand can lead to disaster.

aw man....this is just gonna be sitting in the back of my head forever...thanks for sharing.

glad I have strict fellow shooters. I read the other thread posted by pandamonium and all I could think was...NEVER load the firearm until you are ready to shoot....even leave the magazines empty.

Glad to see you recovering. How did the deer season treat you?

You would think though, that a former LEO would stay a lttle calmer in a situation like that.
Perhaps that is why he is an "Ex" Deputy. Excitable types tend to get weeded out.
