    This may have been a self-defense scenario, however, it is unclear if Coles was really engaged in a "road rage" incident (with brandishing) or if he merely had an ND while playing with his gun. For some reason, the story just doesn't ring true.

    I feel like I know less after reading the article. My only though is that Darwin must have smiled when the shooter said, "Boy, I showed him, look at him drive away after I shot myself in the leg with my own friggin gun".

    Give this guy a medal, he was just defending the innocent citizen in the other car from his own aggression and stupidity.

    It reads as though the idiot shot himself and then invented the other driver in a lame attempt to salvage his pride.......

    well, that is one "I be a bad a__ " epic fail. As all of us here know - You carry a gun and road rage is a thing of the past.
    It's Orlando (not a population of the sharpest knives in the drawer) so I believe his story 100%......everyone is a gunslinger when they get behind the wheel.

    I guess that could be intimidating. "I just shot MYSELF - imagine what I'm willing to do to YOU!"
    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    probably not legal. If he had a permit that would have been the headline "Legal gun owner bla bla bla"

    I read the article three times, ok ok twice and I still don't know what happened. If some other driver waved a gun at this guy how did this guy shoot himself in the leg?? Did the original gun waver and this "victim" at some point pull over and end up in a struggle and somehow end up with the weapon discharging and striking the "victim" on the leg?? I just cant make heads or tails of what really happened here. Its all very confusing and unclear, or did this "victim" at some point say to himself "ah ok wave a gun at me will you!! Well I will show you!!! Where's my Glock!!!.......see what I did there??

    Anyone in FL who is 18 and over and legally allowed firearm possession can have a concealed firearm in a private conveyance as long as it "securely encased," which can be an unlocked console, glove box, snapped holster, yadda-yadda. In fact , even open displayed in a private conveyance is legal as long as "securely encased." So it may very well been "legal."

    Road rage is such a frequent occurrence here that if I posted most of them, the DC server would crash.
