    Exclamation Shot By "Flashlight Gun!"

    This guy picks up what he believes is a dropped flashlight. Turns out to be a "zip gun" and he gets popped in the left hand. Thankfully not too seriously injured. His new advice "don't pick up things."

    The story & video:

    Cool

    Pretty cool video. I'd never seen an AA flashlight reworked into an operating zip gun before. I thought it was overkill for LE to call in the bomb squad but that's just me.

    The victim who looked to be about 40 was lucky it hit his weak hand. I can't imagine losing the use of my right hand at that age.Oucharama

    I loved the comment about how it could have been his eye. Who points a flashlight at their own eye? Not too mention that it was obviously modified, far from a normal flashlight switch.

    I'm surprised we haven't read about him before, in the Darwin awards.

    The entire story reminds me of the famous character down Arkansas way Kurt Saxon. This looks like one of his creations.

    I like his advice, "don't pick things up".
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
