I'm sure there's a joke about shooting craps in here...

Sorry for the delayed post. I had to get a rental car taken care of because some lovely person backed out of a parking space and right into me!

Anyways, Alex from
Law and Ordnance sent me this nifty news item:

SAN ANTONIO -- This is one story they'll be telling around the San Antonio Police Department for a long time. An off-duty officer was at a San Antonio auto auction house yesterday when nature called, a police spokesman said. Officer Craig Clancy strolled to the appropriate facility and was lowering his trousers when his pistol fell from his waistband. When Clancy fumbled for the falling firearm, it went off, twice. One of the bullets nicked a bit of floor tile into the leg of a man who was washing his hands nearby. That man was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Police internal affairs is investigating.

What can you say?

If you drop a gun, don't fumble for it. Chances are it will NOT go off if you let it fall. Chances are it WILL go off if you fumble around with it.

Lesson learned.
