    Full auto maybe?

  2. MR Says:

    I am not sure what is more amazing….the fact that he got off five or six shots to his head, or the fact that he is in a condition other than “deceased”.

    Hell if I know. I guess if the caliber was light enough in the loafers, many of those could have been caught or deflected by his skull.
    As to why. Some sort of critical parts breakage might have caused his weapon to sponaneously go full auto. Add that to a less than perfect grip on a handgun, and there you go. If it was a suicide attempt you would expect a telling shot before numbers five or six.

    That guy needs help!

    Either way…it seems he’s doing it wrong.

    there’s a “really thickheaded dude” joke in there somewhere, but even i’m not lowbrow enough to tell it.

    Some of the ranges in my neck of the woods are being told to have 24/7 Video Surveillance by their Insurance Companies as a way of protecting themselves from a “Wrongful Accident” lawsuit that is faked;i.e. a money grubber grazes their leg with a .22LR and claims that it was caused by a ricochet, and the faker is demanding a Zillion Bucks in Damages. That system might have helped in this case, because you KNOW there’s an Ambulance Chaser talking to the family of the guy right this minute.

    I thought that only happened when the police were around…

    Very fucking carefully.

    I am from panama city and somehow I am not surprised this happened. Sad and unfortunate but at the same time not really surprised. I don’t think they rent full auto there. I have been there before and took my CCW there. They were very careful and enforced rules. It will be interesting to see what happens with this.

    Were the exit wounds stuffed with cotton balls?

    Someone might want to see where Bill Clinton was that day?

  13. Paul Says:

    Well it does sound like a full auto. But it could be a hair trigger simi and someone unfamiliar with it.

    Or maybe it was a shotgun and they counted each hole as a shot.

    At least he is alive.

    Do you think maybe he was twirlling a Glock?

    If it had been a Mafia hit staged to look like a suicide, the guy likely would be dead. Look to the anti-gunners wanting to ban shooting ranges because of the suicide prevention that would make possible!

  15. Kristopher Says:

    I you use a .25 ACP, you can probably get through at least one magazine change before your central nervous system notices the damage.

  16. steve Says:

    Kristopher, what’s the rule about .25s? If you shoot somebody with one and they find out about it….


  17. Beaumont Says:

    Possibly a .25 made of Zamak or cheap polymer w/ a boken sear?

  18. Trent Says:

    Am I the only one who thought “suicide attempt” when I read this?

    Since he’s not dead, he could have used a minor caliber like a .22 and just kept trying until he passed out.

    maybe like this:

    “WESTFIELD, Mass. An 8-year-old boy died after accidentally shooting himself in the head while firing an Uzi submachine gun under adult supervision at a gun fair.”

    “As the boy fired the Uzi, “the front end of the weapon went up with the backfire and he ended up receiving a round in his head,” police Lt. Hipolito Nunez said. The boy died at a hospital.”

    Kristopher, I agree with you and Col. Cooper about the .25acp.

    I usedta think that it had one useful purpose; that is, if one’s kitty is really sick and hurting and fixing to die, that’s what you use if you believe in doing it yerself. Lately, I am thinking that that would cause said kitty to rise up and pop his human across the face, as if to say, “Why are you picking on me when you know I’m already fixing to die?”

  21. Justthisguy Says:

    P.s. I had a neighbor, once, who got shot with a .25acp. He didn’t notice that it had happened until he got home from the bar, got some sleep, and woke up the next day. He had this huge funny-looking pimple on his arm, and when he squeezed it, a .25acp bullet fell out.

    I do believe that the .22 Long Rifle cartridge is more deadly, and cheaper to buy.

  22. Justthisguy Says:

    P.p.s. Ever since I was a little kid, I have wanted to build a belt-fed .25acp machine gun, just for the silliness that’s in it. Curse you, NFA and Hughes Amendment!

    Worst case of attempted suicide I’ve ever seen.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
