As gun owners, we preach one thing very strongly no matter the age or circumstance – gun safety. You can never be too careful when handling a gun, and as one Georgia man will tell you, this is true in any case.
According to 13WMAZ, the man, while attempting to holster his .45, apparently accidentally discharged his weapon through his pelvis region. To put things politely, the round penetrated through his penis and exited out the back of his buttocks.
He then reportedly drove himself to a friend’s house who promptly rushed him to a local hospital. Although many people will tell you to keep your finger off the trigger at all times, until you’re ready to shoot, Mediaite also has some pretty good advice:
And that’s why, folks, you always need to make sure you have the safety on before you point your firearm anywhere in the vicinity of your junk.
So what do you guys think – is this guy a putz or could this have happened to anyone? Let us know in the comments below.
