    You admitted to it? What were you thinking? Didn't you take one for the team while trying to save some poor old granny from being cavity-probed by the TSA people at the airline gate? Surely you remember that!

    Wow they did the surgery under local anesthesia, 10mg of morphine and a script of Lortab! That probably saved you or your insurance thousands of dollars compared to general anesthesia, recovery room, couple nights laying in bed watching TV while flirting with the nurses, getting awaken in the middle of the night to draw blood and take your vital sign$.

    oops couldn't help myself...

    Speedy recovery

    That's terrible, I hope your recovery goes well.

    Thanks for posting this, a tragic story can often serve as a wake-up reminder for all gun owners.

    I guess that is one way to learn, but I wouldn't say it would be my preferred method. Well, how can I say I'm glad it was only your thumb ? .... when every body part is rather important. How's this, I'm glad it wasn't something more VITAL and you can still type on a keyboard.

    It doesn't sound like your thumb will be in the way anymore.

    Thanks for reminding us, to expect the unexpected, to always be ready, and to never put body parts in front of the barrel... intentionally or unintentionally.

    I just want you to post what your wife says when you tell her "honey, I'm going out shooting today ". I'm betting she ups the value on your life insurance.

    (sorry, couldn't resist).

    yikes, sorry to hear that. yep, a pistol going full auto on you can sure be a handful depending on the round and amount of ammo you go through. sure could have been worse. hope you heal up fine!

    You gonna sell that Hellfire? (hint, hint)

    Glad you still have all your digits! Hope it heals clean. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    BTW... if you want a machine pistol, go buy a real one and don't mess with gadgets like the hellfire.

    Hope it's a quicky and speedyrecovery!

    I've heard about those hellfire trigger attachments, but honestly, when it comes to bumpfiring, they're not needed. I've been doing it without any kind of add-ons for my AK for awhile now. It just takes time to learn a good technique is all. Although for the life of me, I can't see how one could bumpfire a pistol.

    Oh come on... Somebody had to say it

    Seriously though... Good luck and hope you have a speedy recovery. Hand injuries suck. I've had broken fingers, knuckles etc...more times than I care to remember and not all of them function quite the same anymore. Good luck and make sure you follow any advice from your PT nurse or whoever later...

    Had a .50 BMG cook off in my hand a few years ago. Pretty much blew my middle and ring finger off. Those hand surgeons are miracle workers. We all make stupid mistakes. Some of us get caught. You just got caught.

    Go away for the weekend to a Convention and come back and all sorts of things happen.

    Best of luck to you on a speedy recovery.

    I figured this would be the FIRST response! LOL


    My dear Watson.... don't do that again!

    That's why God gave ya 2, but let's not test his theories......

    Seriously, glad you are still here and are willing to tell us about it. You have probably saved someone from that same mistake. Keep it clean, and forget about shooting for a while. Well, maybe strong handed only. Get rid of that "TOY" trigger.
