More proof that idiots, guns and booze don't mix.
Then there's that "AK-47" thing...A 23-year old man was in serious condition Thursday at Kalispell Regional Medical Center after suffering a gunshot wound to the leg.
The man was accidentally shot by a friend who was showing off his new AK-47 rifle, said Flathead County Sheriff Mike Meehan.
The accident occurred at 11:55 p.m. Wednesday on Trumble Creek Road. The shooting victim was visiting his friend's home to show him a deer he had shot, Meehan said. While the two were talking about hunting and comparing firearms, the AK-47 went off and struck the man once in the leg.
Both men had been drinking, Meehan said.
The Evergreen Fire Department and Flathead County Sheriff's deputies responded to the incident.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
Another one of those “It just went off” stories, even with as little sense most reporters have they should know, SOMEONE had to have had their finger on the trigger. /end rant/
Uh huh, another "hold my beer and watch this".
