    Crash test,G26 and ATV

    I was CCing a G26 today when riding a ATV and as I was going through the woods I rounded a sharp corner and was going too fast to avoid a small tree. The back wheel hit the tree and the ATV stopped dead in it tracks. I , on the other hand did not.
    I remember my body moving forward and the handlebars hitting my legs ,then seeing ground and then sky.
    The next thing I remember is my legs being straight up in the air and landing on my head and my neck making cracking sounds like I was at the chiropractor's office.
    After that my body hit the ground and I lay there a few seconds and got my bearing and did a body check.
    My right wrist and neck hurt but not too bad as to the a concern.
    I stood up and looked down and there was my Glock 26 laying on the ground.
    It had come out of my belly band and I had landed on top of it.
    My buddy that was riding with me pulled up next up me to check on me and said ,Dude your legs were straight up in the air when you hit the ground.
    I know that ,Thanks you I said
    I picked up the Glock and give it a once over, no damage, None.
    I guess what I'm saying is .
    (1) If you need a tough gun , buy a Glock
    (2) If you ride ATVs slow down before you break your freak-en neck.
    Dang, tomorrow morning its going to be hard to get out of bed.
    I'm too old for this crap

    Oh man, that sucks about the crash! Glad you didn't break your neck -- or anything else for that matter.

    As for the Glock. Well yeah, what'd you expect, it's a Glock! *grin*

    Feel better soon, ASSA9. Ouch! (Please tell us you were at least wearing a helmet?) Get you some ice, some heat, and some Vitamin I. (ibuprofen)
    Don't frisk me, I am the weapon.

    +1 Statistically, we are all far more likely to die in a vehicular accident then an encounter with a BG...

    Slow down You move too fast You got to make the moment last.

    Be careful. You hurt alot more now than a few years back. I try not to fall off anymore.

    That's why I use holsters with a thumb break, and sometimes carry with empty chamber when a wreck may be in the cards. Might not be much of a risk but the trigger could snag on a branch during its free flight.

    You're right about slowing down on ATV's.... I give anesthesia and make a lot of money from ATV's.........

    I would, but apparently now I need to wait until you heal.

    Guess you're NOT up for a trip to the range this afternoon then?

    Glad to hear you weren't seriously injured! Obviously, it could've of been bad, for the glock of course! :)
