Probably felt like getting hit in the head with a baseball bat. Glad he wasn't badly hurt.

The worst one I ever saw was from somebody that should have known better. We had a young officer with one of the smaller PDs who loved to do the quick draw (obviously watched too much Gunsmoke as a kid). You'd be standing there talking to him, and all of sudden, there it was, him crouched in a classic gun fighter position, gun in his hand. Even I have to admit he was pretty fast BUT HE'D PRACTICE THIS WITH A LOADED WEAPON!

I kept getting on him about it, talked to his chief, the whole thing. And then one day it happened. He'd brought in a guy to the sheriff's office and after the perp had been processed and locked away, he went into the kitchen andd had just poured himself a cup of coffee. And he did the quick draw and the pistol went bang. The round blew a hole clean through a Heavy duty door hinge, through the metal door frame, a piece of a cinderblock, and into the wall on the other side (which fortunately was frame with a brick backing). One of my dispatchers had just walked through that door when the pistol discharged and based upon the bullet path, had the dispatcher been a second slower, it would have gotten him right in the head.

I took the gun away from him, yelled at him, and called his chief threatening to ban him forever from the facility and criminal charges. We finally compromised on a three day suspension without pay, and a trip to the academy to retake the weapons safety course.

After that, he became a poster child for weapons safety.

Good job for getting that drilled into him and holding him responsible. Too bad it had to come to that to wake his butt up!

I was reading how some folks don't carry a round in the chamber and was remembering one of the more interesting accidental discharges we had. At 1st MPs, we were allowed to carry a magazine in our 1911s, but not one in the chamber for Law enforcement duties. When we came in off the road, and before turning in our weapons, each MP would go up to a clearing barrel, draw his/her pistol, and drop the magazine. They would then pull and lock the slide back, and the patrol supervisor would run a clearing rode down the barrel.

Lt. Johnson was patrol sup that evening, and her tam had just come in. Now Lt. Johnson was a really cool LT. Her major problem in life was someone forgot to tell her she was an officer, but aside from that small issue, she was a really good Platoon Leader. Anyway she'd just gotten all her people cleared, walked up to the clearing barrel, pointed her weapon into it, and instead of dropping the magazine, she works the slide, and pulls the trigger. There's a loud bang, followed by her swearing a blue streak (I didn't know she knew those words). The Captain comes out, looks at her, smiles and says, "Congratulations, Lt. Johnson. You're officially an officer in the US Army."

All it takes is a momentary brain fart. Unfortunately those become more common the older you get, at least in my case.

I haven't kept up with this thread... wow!!

Gamestalker should be buying lottery tickets...
He's either one of the luckiest - or unluckiest - people I've ever heard of as far as his adventures with firearms goes!!

We had a tall fellow here that was shot in the knee with a 30-06.
He was deer hunting with another guy and he somehow mistook him for a deer.
I haven't ever seen any 6'5" deer around here myself...
Anyway - he was lucky because it didn't completely blow his knee out.
He healed up and can still walk, although he has a very noticable limp because his legs are about as long as I am tall!!


When my Dad was the Sheriff, he did the stupidest thing he ever did in his whole life:
He hired his son-in-law for a deputy... His name was Claude.

Now Claude was discharged (negligently??) from the Army and needed a job.
So apparently Dad felt sorry for Claude's dumb ass and convinced the county
commissioners to hire him.

Anyway - Claude was an idiot - had the whole town pissed off at him and
even arrested one of the commissioners for driving under the influence...
Actually chased the guy 16 miles out in the country!!
Ended up wrestling with the commissioner on the ground - in the snow
actually - since it was the middle of winter and hand-cuffing the poor guy.

The commissioner was and older fellow owned a big farm/ranch and never was in
trouble his whole life.

After that - suddenly - the commissioners decided to cut the budget for the Sheriffs
Office exactly what Deputy Claude's salary was... Go figure!!

To cut to the quick here, dip-shit Claude lost his job and ended up having an affair
and my sister divorced his dumb-ass.

She did keep this full length mirror... It had a bullet hole through the frame of it!!
There was one in the wall too, but shit-for-brains fixed that one...

Where did it come from?

Deputy Claude standing in front of the mirror doing his quick-draw!!

My sister said he'd rub the brim of his hat while staring at himself in the mirror...
Then pull his gun!!

He shot the mirror and my sister kept it figuring it would be a good bit of evidence
to show the judge if Claude decided to be "unreasonable" during the divorce!! (-:
