Loaded Gun Misfires in Guy’s Pants


Having your gun go off accidentally is bad. Shooting yourself is worse. Shooting yourself in the junk? Well, that’s just about the worst day ever.

Earlier this week, a 45-year-old man was working in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham when he adjusted the .40-caliber Glock pistol in his pants (no, that’s not a euphemism) and it discharged (that’s not one either).

“The situation could have been a lot worse” Birmingham Police Deputy Chief Mark Clemence said of the shot. “You think about it — your femoral artery runs down there. He could have shot it off. It could have been a lot worse.”

A co-worker was apparently able to stop wincing long enough to drive the guy to a nearby hospital. He’s reportedly okay, but may face the further indignity of being charged with “reckless discharge of a firearm” by city prosecutors.

So to recap — your crotch is a terrible place to keep your firearm and the answer to “is that a gun in your pants or are you just happy to see me?” should always be the latter.
