    Don't clean your firearm while drunk....

    So I get a call from my friend Thursday night, he asks??? Could you still use your hand if you shot through it with a 9mm? I said, It depends where you hit it at and was it a hollow point? So it turns out his friend was starting to clean his 9mm Glock after drinking and taking meds. He managed to shoot through his left hand, mushroomed and left a silver dollar sized hole on the back of his hand. He shattered bone, hit an artery and hit tendons. Did I mention he's left handed. I said sorry to hear that, he should have not been drinking and on meds while cleaning his firearm, I guess he's going to be a righty from know on. The doctors don't know if he will regain use of his hand. I do have a new respect for the 9mm. The guy also owns a .45 Glock, he's lucky he wasn't cleaning that. The same guy had a intruder break into his house about 4 years ago, he shot and killed the intruder with the same 9mm. He shot the intruder from about 10ft, fired 5 rounds, two hit the intruder in the chest and one in his back.

    You may want to buy him a stun gun for Christmas, handing while drunk would heal quicker.

    You shouldn't mix alcohol and firearms, and you shouldn't have to pull the trigger on a weapon to disassemble it.

    Booze and almost everything don't mix.

    And, moderation is required. Know your limit, cut it in half, and stay safe.

    I've pulled the trigger hundreds of times to disassemble my Glock's and have never shot myself. Huge difference between stupidity and knowing your firearm is not loaded and it is ok to pull the trigger so you can break down your gun.

    As for the story people do stupid things when they are drinking. I'm having a few beers tonight and both of my Glocks have trigger locks on them at this moment in time.

    Tonight is about beer and poker. Not about shooting myself.

    Poor gun! He should not have been cleaning his firearm and drinking, but still. I hope he gets well soon.
