    MARY ESTHER -- An unemployed security officer who was drinking at his home on Dec. 7 shot himself in the leg with his .357 Magnum on Dec. 7, according to his Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office arrest report.

    The 30-year-old man was alone in his bedroom when he shot himself. The bullet went through his leg and lodged in the bedroom wall. He had an alcoholic beverage with him in the room, the report said.

    The man said the gun had fallen and discharged accidentally. The instruction manual for the gun said that it has a "transfer bar safety mechanism," which means it can only be fired if the trigger is pulled.

    The deputy noted that the man had discharged a firearm a few months earlier, lodging a bullet in his ceiling.

    He was taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center for treatment, where his blood alcohol content was determined to be .192. He was charged with using a firearm while under the influence of alcohol, which is a misdemeanor.

    No doubt. It sounds like that dude was gonna shoot himself sooner or later. I gotta say it though; better he shot himself as a result of his stupidity then someone else, or a possibly a family member. .357 Wow! I bet that hurt.

    That's just goofy! One ND....

    Two NDs...

    These stories almost always seem like they are from Florida.

    Here's one that Mr. Unemployed Security Guard can take lessons from!!! This was supposedly a true incident.

    Would you hire a security guard applicant with 2 ND's on his record? This might the time for a career change ... can you say "Mall Cop"?
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!
