You Think You Had a Bad Day at Work?

The Insurance Journal passes on a report that a man was injured at his Ft. Worth insurance office after a gun he had stuffed in his pocket accidentally fired and shot him in both legs. In addition to going through both of his legs, the bullet also passed through a bookshelf before lodging in the wall of a cubicle.

SayUncle, do you think you could get this guy some safety training?

Hmm, not sure how he did taht. I'd recommend he holster the weapon.

It's easy to do that - if you pull the handgun out of your pocket by the trigger! It's an easy mistake to make because grips are shaped so the natural place for your forefinger is inside the trigger guard - you've got to be aware and be careful to keep that finger elsewhere until you point the gun at something that needs perforated.

And of course, the safety had to be off, nonexistent, or defective - all of which are true often enough that gun safeties are at best the last line of defense against negligent discharges.
