How is that possible without shooting himself in the butt first? That's an awfully weird angle the barrel was pointed! :lol:
Easy, being a convicted felon he broke the penal code.
I see what you did there. :lol::
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

Perhaps someone should revise Col. Jeff Cooper's 4 basic safety rules by adding a new 1st one: "Don't ever point the muzzle at yer [insert body part here]" .......and then follow with the other 4 in regular order.

1. Don't ever point the muzzle at yer [body part]. Use a mallet to pound it flat instead, if you must.
2. All guns are always loaded.
3. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (See #1 !!!!)
4. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
5. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

Perhaps we could persuade the unenlightened to EDC a mallet........

I think allowing those who would injure themselves thus shouldn't be discouraged. The less they procreate the less future generations of non-thinkers.

I think this should be eligible for the Darwin award. He didn't die, but he did ensure he wouldn't procreate.

Yeah this may be the best one. Glock leg was pretty good, but this is subtle, perfect for the G rating of this site.

BTW, I just want to make sure we're all on the same page...... "genitials" (as in the thread title) is the same thing as "genitals", right? :mrgreen:

Since it was in Florida, he may have been a genteel Gentile who shot himself in the genitals not so gently.

They could have saved the taxpayers a lot of money by giving Bradley Manning this choice if he really wanted to be Chelsea.
