Much less playing with it. Some folks in Cleveland were laying with a loaded gun that they thought was unloaded. It ended tragically. And was broadcast live on facebook. Pointing it at one another, at themselves, in their mouths. Here’s video leading up to the shooting: Christ on a crutch.
School resource officer, alone in a room, discharges a handgun.
Apparently, whipping out your hi-point, while breaking gun safety rules, for a photo is a thing.
Off duty cop shoots self in stomach on an elevator: News story here. Awful. I wonder why he was handling it. And I wonder why he was handling it like that.
Indiana police chief shoots self at a gun store. Again.
Remember when we talked about stupid things to do with your gun while on the shitter a couple of times? Another reason why that’s stupid: A loaded .38-caliber pistol was found wedged into the handicapped brace bar in a stall in the men’s restroom at the McDonald’s restaurant on North Charles Seivers Boulevard, according to […]
Y-12 officer ‘repositioning’ weapon when it goes off. It just went off!
And keep your finger off the trigger.
Also, rule 2. And, I’m guessing, either use a holster or do not catch a dropped gun.
A post on what to do with your gun while pooping. Leave it in the holster.
I caught about ten minutes of Neal Boortz driving this morning. He was on the radio quite obviously handling a firearm and talking about it. Seemed he unloaded a semi-auto, ejected a round, reloaded it and chambered it a couple of times. What you’ve done here, Neal, is increased the chance of putting holes in […]
Remember when we talked about pooping while carrying and, you know, how it was dumb to take it out of the holster and all that? Well, here’s one reason why. Seems an officer used the TTAG approved method of removing his gun while doing number 2. He left the gun in the bathroom and it […]
And get a stiff one I’ve carried a gun for a long time. Never had a problem in the shitter. I’m with Sebastian, unholstering is not the best idea.
Getting back and realizing your gun wasn’t topped off. Mine just always are loaded. They’re pretty much only ever empty after shooting at the range. Then, I load them before I leave.
Officer has negligent discharge at middle school. Via the duck, who notes the press included a descriptive photo of how it happen.
Politichicks do a bit on guns. I’m happy they like their guns. I’m unhappy that they whip one out, start waving it around and pointing it in bad directions. Starts at about the 3:00 mark:
And it’s not a prop. A judge in GA was growing frustrated with a witness. So, he reached into his robe and pulled out a gun and told the witness she may want to shoot her lawyer. And this guy is a judge, someone who decides what law means.
Say you use your gun defensively, to some fanfare from the press who wants to tell your tale. Great. But let’s reconsider posing with our guns for the press. I’m rather a fan of Tam’s rule of stop touching it. I think it’s better if we kept our guns where they belong, in the holsters. […]
Local deputy shoots frozen bologna at a convenience store. Seems he was handling the weapons and shot it.
And get a decent holster.

On the NRA floor checking out the Galco booth when some moron pulls his gun out of his holster and sticks in in a holster on the shelf.
Violating the rule of STOP TOUCHING IT, a guy was moving his gun and holster because it was uncomfortable. And somehow managed to shoot a 3 year old in the legs.
Stop touching it.
Officer accidentally fires his gun at a school: They want to know exactly what happened, how it can be avoided in the future . . . Stop touching it.
Someone negligently discharged a firearm. No details on whether it’s the booger hook on the bang switch, trying to catch a dropped gun, or failing to clear a chamber variety (the most common types, based on my experience reading the news). But it’s definitely got the “I was just cleaning it and it went off […]
NY resource officer has negligent discharge. He was on patrol and, apparently, finger banging it for no reason. Stop touching it. Texas school worker shoots self during training course. Looks like a finger on the trigger while holstering.
Why would you need to do a barrel roll with a gun? Stop touching it.
Remember when I said stop touching it? Well, this guy didn’t.
Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
