Lakeland, Florida – A Lakeland Police Department civilian employee accidentally shot himself through the hand Friday while handling an officer’s gun, police said.

When Waterman parked outside the police station and went inside to use the restroom, Ramirez took the officer’s department-issued back-up gun, a .45-caliber glock, out of the car’s glove box.

He was looking at the gun when it accidentally fired, shooting him through the hand, police said.

If there is one thing I hate, it’s when guns decide to shoot when you’re just looking at them :roll: *sarcasm*

I’d like to see these in a lineup like the recent posts I made on rifle ammo and handgun ammo.

I have absolutely no idea what approximately 80/100 of these are used for.

If your monitor is small, it won’t expand to its full size.  You should “save as…” to download it to view it in all its glory.

Quite the collection.

Awesome reference.

Sadly, this little guy probably shoots better than I do:

 


I caught a glimpse of an IPSC patch a couple places in the video. I don’t know if this in the U.S. or not.

That kid can sure handle a .45 without any issue though. I wonder how he scored?

This is a gun board classic:

After some years now of reading internet bulletin boards, I think I’ve got the pros and cons of possible SHTF rifle choices figured out. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the following is my analysis based upon the wisdom of numerous gun board gurus (you know them, they’re always the first ones to tell you a particular model gun is “junk” and enlighten you as to why they have made the only logical purchases)…

The AR 15:

Great, awesome, unbelievable rifle(when it works). Can hit a fly in the butt at 300 yards (when it works). If one is ever attacked by a pack of feral poodles post-SHTF, this is the perfect defensive rifle (unless it jams, in which case you’re poodle food). The upside is that one can hang more plastic aftermarket doo-dads on it than a Christmas tree, which may effectively frighten away bad guys when the gun jams. Also, by simply changing the upper, one can convert it into a Ruger 10/22.

The MINI-14:

Could be a good rifle, but it’s not black.
