Totally not what I was expecting.
Title should have been .45 through the foot
I was trying to think of all the different 45 foot hulls that could have slipped off the blocking and fallen on this guys foot

:rolleyes:

Not to be cruel, but I have to wonder how many of his co-workers told him to "walk it off"

Couple of comments on the "medical aspects" of the post.

Seems like he went home instead of a medical facility.
He has exposed bone and tissue. Gonna need care quickly.
Hate to see him develop an acute osteomyelitis and/or a staph infection.
Lots of fungus and bacteria on feet, especially Alaskan feet in boots !!! LOL
Could lose more than his big and 2nd toe.

Hoping he sees a podiatrist/plastic surgeon ASAP.
He was VERY FORTUNATE he missed the bone on his big toe.
He'll require a skin graf (maybe a few surgeries) to heal all up.

"IF" he's lucky, he'll go through the rest of his life without a limp.

Question?

Was it his gun? Did he have the trigger safety off? Lose a bet?
Just plain dared to do it after a "few" ?

Bill like i said this was sent to me by a buddy who works at a remote lead & zinc mine(Red Dog Mine - Welcome). If it happened out there then it was a plane ride to a doctor, if it happened in one of the villages then maybe just the village clinic took care of it or maybe the guy just stayed home and let it heal up. Life in the bush ain't easy, folks just about always carry guns for bear protection and the alcohol problems are bad in most of the villages.

He proved a point, accidents do happen whether your a kid playing with daddy's gun, a street thug or a cop. And it happens often while hunting too!

He later sued the DEA for releasing the video, effectively ending his career, becoming the poster child for gun safety FAIL.

I wouldn't describe what he did as an accident. He didn't even make the most rudimentary ammo checks of the Glock or follow basic protocol in handling firearms. It was pure negligence, especially from a "professional" LEO. He should be held to a higher standard than Joe Public. He deserves ridicule!

I am the only one in the room professional enough, that I know of, to carry this Glock 40... BANG!

Then he asks for a bigger weapon. PRICELESS!
