Patterson, 27, said he suffered "one of my most embarrassing moments" when his gun fired.
"At first, I didn't feel anything at all," said Patterson
"Then about 30 seconds later, I felt that burning, stinging," he said.
He felt something warm trickling down his left leg and found an exit wound.
Patterson said he walked into his parents' home and said, "Mom, I did something bad."
Mom, I did something bad? hehehe
He rightly deserved the "accidental discharge" from the Gene Pool.

From where does those other 53 men-who-shot-themselves-somewere, came from? :)
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.

Good, only 38 left to find.
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.
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?
