A woman celebrating the weekend before her 25th birthday was fatally shot Sunday when she hugged an off-duty police officer while dancing at a party, causing the officer’s service weapon to fire, according to police and her mother.

According to police Sgt. Stephens, the woman “embraced the officer from behind, causing the holstered weapon to accidently discharge.” The bullet punctured Miller’s lung and hit her heart, and she died at a hospital.

WTF…. k my internal bullshit checklist goes: 1) Not April fools day  2) Is the story on other news sites?

It passes both those checks but I’m still trying to figure out how a holstered gun can miraciously spin around, aim at this womans lungs and discharge?  That’s it… i’m not hugging any more cops after today… well maybe i’ll hug a few more today just to secure the memories… but after tomorrow i’m done for good.

Thoughts? Help me crack the case guys… I think we might even need to get Mythbusters on this one.

Sure the .357 magnum or G26 are acceptable choices for self defense.  The Kel-Tec PLR-16 with 100 round surfire mag though? haha  Trollin.. Trollin.. Trollin.. What is this, Die Hard?

I’d almost 100% guarantee if you whipped out a PLR-16 and started to “neutralize threats”, you would be neutralized yourself just because of the look of the gun.  If not, god forbid that thing was anywhere near you when the cops showed up.  You damn well better have a concealed carry badge to flash in an effort to save your life. <— That was a joke btw… in case it went over some heads. :P

Thoughts?  I’ve actually never heard the term “food court gun” before today, but I don’t frequent any forums anymore so that might explain it.

Oh just a standard bible… or is it! *dramatic music*

I’ve hollowed out a few books in my day… didn’t put guns in any of them though.  The hiding guns in books option and how-to was discussed already, in addition to other places to hide guns in the house.

Thou shalt not kill though right?  Hmmm what’s self defense considered?  I haven’t been to church in a while.

Hell yea:

If you ask me everyone needs a KA-BAR.  I’ve got their classic USMC fighting knife with the leather sheath.

Nothing beats a good “making of” video…

Thoughts?

Chick lean?  Or proper small bore rifle shooting stance?  Either way this girl is relevant to my interests.

This is probably a stupid question, but will she be shooting a laser gun at the Olympics?

I know the point of those rifles is accuracy, but they look extremely nerdy.  I wonder what she could do with a larger caliber rifle?

Thoughts?
