    Saturday night my friend accidentally shot me with my G19. It went in above my elbow at an angle, coming out below the elbow in my forearm. Round was a Winchester Ranger SXT 127gr +P+. The bullet grazed my left knee. It shattered my elbow and bruised some nerves and tore up a tendon. I had surgery this morning and they put a plate and screws in it, the ball of the joint was in two or three pieces as well as the socket. They repaired the tendon and did a bone graft.

    I was surprised, I thought it was going to hurt a lot more initially. I'm not one to take pain easily but I didn't cry at all. I know it hurts now and the physical therapy involved is gonna hurt like a mofo.

    Pics of wounds and xrays soon.


    He owns several guns of his own and we go shooting on a regular basis and he's never been unsafe before. There will be no more of that though. I had unloaded it earlier and when he walked out of the room I loaded it up again to put it in the case or back in the night stand where I always keep it. I guess he came back in and picked it up with his finger on the trigger, like I said, no more anything involving guns with him, ever.

    Glocks are just an accident waiting to happen. I hope he successfully sues Glock and they have to pay so much, they go bankrupt. They deserve it for releasing such an unsafe design. I mean, how can anyone keep their finger outside of the trigger guard?! The temptation to pull the trigger is just overwhelming. And not pointing it at a person you don't intend to shoot? Fuhgeddaboutit!

    This happened to a guy I know. Unfortunately same situation (they were fucking around, left the room, reloaded it, etc) but his friend died. He is aware that it is 100% his fault and doesn't blame "the gun" at all.

    Blaming anything other than the person who owns hte finger that pulls the trigger is ludicrous.

    edit: Fucking picture linking. Just say it in a Hank Hill voice. Also, someone make an advice dog meme out of that kid. "Glock Safeties. Only work if you don't pull trigger."

    thankfully the gun range i go to has nazis for range masters. if you do even the slightest stupid thing they are ALL OVER YOU

    the other one i went to twice is a fucking disaster. the range master only watches via closed circuit tvs :rolleyes: and you'd always have idiots shooting the ceiling/walls/floor/rails.

    I don't remember specifically. It was probably 7-8 years ago. Know he had to either serve time or do probation/community service or something. I know it fucked him up pretty good.

    Fuuuu I thought this was a troll thread. Could have been a headshot just as easily. Idiots and guns don't mix.

    This is why your gun should never leave the safe.

    For sure.

    And the guy is still friends with the dude who loaded his gun and shot him.

    Hahaha.
