    Mo. Highway Patrol captain shoots self during training
    Tuesday, July 18, 2006

    ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) -- A Missouri State Highway Patrol commander is recovering after shooting himself in the arm with a pistol.
    Capt. Johnnie B. Hoggatt, 56, shot himself Monday while participating in a training exercise at a shooting range near Pigeon Creek, off Missouri Route A. He was with five other troopers.

    During the training, the troopers exited a patrol car and fired on multiple targets.

    "Every once in a while, something like this happens," said Lt. Randy Beydler, one of the five troopers participating in the training exercise. "It's unfortunate, but it's one of those things. That's why guns are dangerous." :ugh:

    Hoggatt has been the commanding officer of Troop H, which covers 15 counties in northwest Missouri, for about 10 years.

    How the heck do you shoot yourself in the arm without it being on purpose? :hsugh:

    I mean, I can understand an idiot hitting somebody near him in the arm.... but somebody hitting themselves?

    I shoot IPSC with some volunteer deputys and just veteran shooters that shoot at sheriff ranges a lot. all they talk about is how horrible of a shot most cops are and how inconsiderate of safty they are. most refuse to shoot on the same range with us or in our events. they should really make it harder for some of those idiots to carry guns.
