This next video obviously took a set of very large stones to film. To come before an incredibly critical world where firearms are looked down upon and admit that a mistake was made is almost unheard of. This guy actually shot himself with his .380 ACP and lived to tell the tale. Warning, there is some graphic imagery at the end of this video that shows the actual wound.
This guy doesn't say what he was doing when he shot himself in the leg, but he does notice that the shot placement of the projectile could have killed him if it hit his femoral artery. Thankfully, it didn't come to that.
Let's all take a moment to learn something from this guy. It isn't clear how he shot himself. Was he appendix carrying in an unsafe manner and just happened to hit the trigger when he was practicing a draw? Or, was he fooling around with his pistol as it just happened to be pointed in an area where NO MAN wants to get shot?
We don't know. We are happy to learn that this dude has clearly learned his lesson. Hopefully, we can all learn from it, too.
Here's the video:
I urge you, be careful with your guns. While it is our right to keep and bear arms, we must do so safely, using caution and following the four safety rules at all times. Happy shooting, my friends.
Have you ever been shot before? If so, would you be willing to share you story with us?
