I’ve always said that stupidity should be painful

Thankfully, sometimes it is.

A man accidentally shot himself in the testicles at Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Lynnwood Sunday afternoon, police said.

The man’s handgun, which was in the waistband of his pants, went off at about 12:30 p.m. — an apparent “accidental discharge,” according to Shannon Sessions, a Lynnwood police spokeswoman.

“It made a loud noise and scared a lot of people in the store,” Sessions said. “I believe he shot himself in the testicles and he also had some injuries to his leg and foot. He was obviously in shock.”

As much as I want to feel sorry for the guy, I simply am unable to do so right now. And not just because I can’t stop laughing at him.

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this guy was not using an IWB holster, was he. Or if he was, it didn’t cover the trigger. So no holster, or inadequate holster, probably coupled with him messing with the gun. I bet it was sliding down and he tried to hike it up. A good IWB holster would have prevented this Darwin moment.

    Holsters are good things. If he had one, this would not have happened.

    That discharge can end your life very quickly, so please, use a decent holster.

    (safety moment)

    From the location of the wound, it seems reasonable to deduce that he was carrying his heat right above Mr. Happy. No one does that except gangstas, so that is one more reason to not feel sorry for the chump.

    If you DO feel sorry for him, call the Seattle Opera and find out when they have their next auditions, then advise him of the date. This guy might have a new career singing alto soprano.

    Few years back read of two guys who walked into a stop & rob with pistols in their pants. One drew successfully on the clerk, the other grabbed trigger & BANG.

    Which startled his partner so badly he turned and fired, thus cross-ventilating dumbass #1.

    I think it was a few months before that a guy walked into a store, announced “Gimme the money!” as he grabbed. BANG. As he sank to the floor he said “Never mind that, call an ambulance!”
