accidental discharge

haha this guy.  So sciencey:

Christian-Bale-Pointing-MemeUTM gun with UTM ammunition.  I WONDER WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

I’ll warn you guys in advance, I’m taking days off, *Collective GASPs*… I know!  Going to London and Paris for 10 days with my girlfriend so I’ll be back at it at around the 26th.  Instagram is probably the best spot to snoop on what I’m doing for the next 10 days, and I might put some memes up.

Ban assault kids!

Lodi, CA — A Lodi Police SWAT officer had a Glock 35 with a flashlight in his thigh holster at a children’s reading event when a boy managed to pull the trigger and shoot the officer.

Full Story – CBS

1:24 – “We don’t know if it was accidental or intentional”  <— LOL I’d die if that kid was like “Yea, I wanted to shoot the gun and I knew he wouldn’t let me so I pulled the trigger”

1:27 – “Police say since the gun was in a holster to accommodate the attached flashlight, the trigger was more accessible”  – What kind of a garbage drop leg holster has an open trigger area?  I expect more from someone in law enforcement.

I wish there was video footage of the incident so I could overlay CCR – Lodi “OHHHHH lord, shot in Lodi again”

Even though no one got hurt, they need to get to the bottom of the reason for the negligent discharge (negligence on the police officers behalf… not the kid’s) though because it could have been a lot worse.

Thoughts?

Seen in North Texas parking lot:

That’s a tight pattern so it had to have been close range or else a choked barrel.  If it was a negligent discharge I hope that’s the last one that person ever has.

Looks really fresh.  I wonder if he’s going to drive around with it as a badge of honor, or try to cover it up quick?

Thoughts?

The gun shop guys speak on the topic in another episode of Gun Gripes:

2:54 – Barry says he had 4 negligent discharges in his life (so far).   Shot through a bedroom wall, kitchen wall, closet door, living room ceiling.    Wow *facepalm* at least he’s honest and no one was hurt.

5:30 – Cop accidentally bumpfiring the 1911 on the door hook of a bathroom stall.  Pretty neat story if it’s true.

12:20 – Jar of saved rounds from guns that were supposedly unloaded that were pointed at them in 2011. That’s insane!!!!

Initially I thought 17 Minutes was about 14 minutes too long for me to watch, especially on a topic I never plan on having any personal experience with.  I’m glad I watched it though because it was interesting.

Thoughts? Any of you have any negligent discharge stories?

Expensive and dangerous. For the impatient, the explosion is at the end:

In the comments they say it must have been an out of battery discharge.

Any of you guys ever had a gun explode into pieces on you?  Accidental or otherwise…
