    Another "AD"

    Just heard on my scanner.

    Welfare check and the PD reported that the party appears to have "accidentally shot himself" while cleaning his weapon. The coroner was in route. He's been dead for a couple of days.

    Yeah I know... he did something to cause this.

    Yet another reminder...

    I'll post more info when available.

    I only have a few fears, but one of them is "dying dumb".

    Being excessive/compulsive safety conscious is not a bad thing.

    When are these people going to realize that the best way to clean your firearms is to take all the rounds out first? I mean, come on...who want's solvent all over their bullets?
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Besides, if it is a Glock you are cleaning you have to pull the trigger as you take it apart. Ya think that might make one think? Apparently some don't, or can't.

    I don't mean this guy was cleaning a Glock; don't know. But thinking about this one, no way to know really but this sounds like a suicide to me, not an accident.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    I've never pulled the trigger to strip a gun with it pointed at me. :-o

    Shot while cleaning a gun is a eufemism for suicide.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    This is typically not an accident. It is a way to save face when committing suicide. People who clean guns are usually gun people who know better.

    Some just aren't that smart. I remember one locally many years ago, called police for an ambulance after shooting himself while cleaning his gun. Only he'd shot himself 3 times, cleaning 3 different guns before picking up the phone. First a .22, then a .32 finally a .38. Although in his defense, he wasn't just stupid, he was also drunk.
    A 1911 is Not an obsession, it's simply a recognition that it's THE Gun. :-) All others are runner ups. And hey, if all else fails, aim for the nose and fling it to knock out your foe. Let's see y'all do that with a kel-Tec. ;-)

    We had a good guy at the local indoor range accidently shoot himself in the stomach when clearing a malfunction in his 1911. He turned and said to my friend,

    "I guess I screwed up!"

    He died before the medics got there.

    I actually had a cousin that killed himself cleaning a shotgun. At least that's what I was told when I was about 8-10 years old. To this day I don't know what really happened and if that was the truth or it was suicide.
