Now let’s see if SawStop comes up with a device to solve this little dilemma.

Let me guess… he was stepping on a snake’s head and shot the snake in head. Right? If he was from Mississippi (I am from MS), I would say this was the case.

Yeah, OUCH!!!!

And all these years I thought “shooting yourself in the foot” was just a figure of speech!

Email came from Springfield Illinois … didn’t ask who it belonged to. Not my friends foot … he’s too old … looks like a younger foot … but I’m don’t look at too many feet, so it’s hard to tell >grin<

Looks like a .357 or larger caliber wound. Kids can’t live with them, can’t shoot them in the foot…Oh, wait …

It’s been around a while, I’ve gotten it several times from friends. Shoot yourself in the foot comes from carrying a single action six shooter with one under the hammer. If it gets bumped, it can go off!! Real cowboys only carried 5 rounds with the hammer down on an empty chamber. That way they never have to learn to limp:-))

I knew a fellow who was a logger and an active sort of guy. He was out practice quick draw one Sat. Shot himself through the knee with a .22 rimfire. Fortunately it didn’t do too much damage. He had a cast on to immobilize it. He sat around the house on Sun. He sat around the house on Monday. He sat around the house on Tuesday. By Wednesday, he was getting a little antsy being an active sort of fellow not used to sitting around the house:-)) If you can’t see this going, well you ain’t got no imagination at all!! Yup, he figured since he couldn’t do anything else, he may as well practice quick draw. Shot his cast & knee right through the same hole as before:-)) They had to re-cast him. He told me he decided to give it up.

My son recently asked me why I don’t carry my glock with one in the chamber. I showed him the pics… He now understands why you don’t carry a loaded gun around! I explained that it’s even worse when you do it to someone else unintentionally!
Thanks for sharing,

This fool is lucky, it appears to only be soft tissue damage not bone. From the bottom of the foot he appears to be young which illustrates why old men are usually wiser, we’ve learned to listen better.

Another sad example:

I love how he wanted to continue the presentation by grabbing for the assault riffle, as people take cover under their desks.

Credibility pretty much went out the window the second he pulled the trigger…I’m sure his work buddies had a field day.

All joking aside, I hope he nor anyone else was seriously hurt. It just goes to show that you can never be too careful.

I kinda thought the knucklehead would be wanting some medical attention, instead of posing for pics.
Where’s the blood?
It looks phony to me.
