    Courthouse Security Officer makes a whoopsie BANG! (Centennial Colorado)

    http://www.coloradocommunitynewspape...urt_gun_ce.txt

    ...he had placed his service weapon, a 9mm semiautomatic handgun, through the lobby X-ray machine in an attempt to calibrate the machine, an unapproved technique.

    After the handgun exited the machine, Reed began re-loading his weapon. It accidentally discharged a bullet into the floor.

    I've never heard of a X-ray setting off rounds. Anybody else?

    I was thinking that the fear of same might be the reason he unloaded in the first place.

    They charged him with reckless endangerment. I disagree with that. They should have charged him with reckless stupidity.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    I'll bet it was a Glock,they are known to go bang whenever you pull the trigger on a live round

    Maybe he was practicing his Queeksdraw

    Reckless stupidity isn't a crime....otherwise more people would be in jail.

    Stupid yes, but too bad he wasn't a cop...he wouldn't have been charged with anything.
