"With the hammer cocked back."
Eeesh, I think that every single person needs to attend a hunter's saftey course just once in their life!
Im in the Uk - we dont have guns over here to any extent but EVEN I know that you dont put a cocked gun in a waist band.
A few weeks ago we had an armed robber shoot his **** et al nearly off.
He placed a sawn off shot gun down the front of trousers, Why didnt he (soon to be a she) just get a job?
How about this guy who accidently shot himself with a Nail Gun. Hmm, when will people learn!
|Why didnt he (soon to be a she) just get a job? |
Most jobs require at least a few functioning brain cells.
>>He placed a sawn off shot gun down the front of trousers,
He rightly deserved the "accidental discharge" from the Gene Pool.
"Man shoots himself in" worldwide = 522 results
"Man shoots himself in" in google Canada only = 7 results
"Man shoots himself in" in google UK only = 30 results
"Man shoots himself in" in google US only = 432 results (We have a winner here!)
From where does those other 53 men-who-shot-themselves-somewere, came from? :)
I like your humour MacGuru.
Do we have a gene pool winner of a country?
(I'll go now .....)
Have to agree.... gun safety should be a required course anywhere guns are legal.
I refuse to get into THAT debate though.
vkaryl, you think a gun safety course will help mens stupid enough to shove sawn off shot guns and cocked pistols down their throusers?
"Man shoots himself in" in google Australia only = 10 results
43 more to find.
>vkaryl, you think a gun safety course will help
I'm pretty sure that you learn the proper place to store your gun when it's not in use. ;-)
I found "Man shoots himself in" 5 on Google NZ
It reminds me of the workers at my dayjob (outside contractors) who were replacing asbestos cladding on the building, and stapled through the computer cabling. They pulled the staples out and said nothing. Took the Tech a couple of hours to find the fault. When told that they had caused a problem the asked "what cables should we stay clear of?" The temptation to say that the 230volt was okay to staple through was pretty strong.

Okay, so the criminal classes are more careful with guns than law-abiding citzens....
I agree, but what conclusion can we draw from policemens, bank robers and clowns beeing on par?
At least clowns have an excuse [firetoys.co.uk].
I guess it might depend upon in which "army" the colonel was an officer (ossifer?).... hrm. Maybe not going there....
Back on topic (should there actually BE one of them in this thread....):
Stupidity is its own reward. The only thing gun-safety classes do is teach the NOT terminally-stupid a bit about protecting not only themselves but others in the near-vicinity. The terminally-stupid provide their own endings....
Survival of the fittest.

Herr, what was the topic again? :)
*laughing* Mac, I NEVER said the US was "perfect" in this category! Far far from it....
You don't want to know how many narrow escapes I've had out hunting. FROM THE OTHER GUY - the one who (regardless that I'm decked out in BLAZE ORANGE VISIBLE FOR 5 MILES *DAMMIT! and so is MY HORSE for chrissakes!) decides that there was MOVEMENT so he shoots....
Anyway.... a little bit of instruction couldn't hurt, could it?
Um. So that makes women with guns WAY safer than guys, right?
>>So that makes women with guns WAY safer than guys, right?
I agree, women are less likely to shoot themselves.
The 'idea' of shoving a loaded gun in trousers must be some Freudian stuff.

Sweetie, we are NOT GOING THERE.
Did the Drs check his head for holes too? His brain MUST have leaked out somewhere!
