    Why .25 acp is not enough

    Officials: Man accidentally shoots self, survives

    MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. — Authorities say a St. Petersburg-area man is recovering after a loaded gun he jokingly put to his head went off.

    The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says Dale Roberts and his girlfriend had been drinking at their apartment when the accidental shooting occurred Saturday around 2:45 a.m. Authorities say the 20-year-old decided the .25-caliber handgun wasn't working and pointed it to his head as a lark. The gun fired and lodged a bullet in his skull.

    Roberts was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg where he was being treated for a skull fracture.

    The sheriff's office is investigating the incident.

    Oh and don't drink and play with weapons.

    Shame he ddnt have it stuck up his nose or in his mouth when it "went off". We probably would have been minus one more idiot.

    To bad he didn't shoot himself in the privates, at least that way we wouldn't have to worry about him breeding.

    Shooting self in family jewels <= shooting self in head in front of mate.

    I doubt they'll be reproducing together.
