    Anybody see the most recent episode of Doomsday Preppers?

    The dad in the first segment has a "malfunction" with his weapon that results in his thumb being severed. They kept talking about this "malfunction", as though the gun blew up or something...no actual footage of the mishap, just the aftermath.

    After surgery to reattach his thumb, he is describing it..."it was just one of those things. It was the type of malfunction where my thumb got in front of the barrel".

    Yeah...there's a malfunction, alright. But it wasn't the gun.

    I HATE tv shows like this. Blame it on the inanimate object!!!

    Morons...

    Oh crap, I hope my thumbs don't malfunction on my next range trip. Then I would have to cancel my cross country hitchhiking trip this spring. :-(

    play the victim, be the victim

    Well, this guys half way there already. :D

    And I misquoted...they called it a "misfire". Even worse. Sounds like it fired just fine.

    ya I only caught part of that, I just don't understand it any circumstances that your thumb would have to go in front of the barrel it sounds more like he went to clear a jam or something and had his hand in front of the barrel. I guess the old rule applies don't point it anything you don't want to destroy, I bet people call him nub...

    Smart. Hammers also. I sometimes hit my thumb when I'm nailing stuff.

    Nails too!

    A malfunction alright. In the brain housing group.

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

    Hello everyone, my name is ______________, and I'm prone to momentary idiocy.

    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.:D"

    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!?!?!?"

    Don't they have a disclaimer at the front of the show?

    "These are trained professionals. Don't try this at home."

    need to change it to professional morons. Even if it was a jam he should have cleared rest of ammo out don't know if it was a revolver or a semi but either way when clearing a jam are you not supposed to take the magazine out???
