Would-be gangster shoots off own manhood
Anaova ^ | 6/4/2009 | Staff

Posted on 06/04/2009 8:31:15 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

A would-be gangster shot himself in the crutch when his gun went off half cocked in his pocket.

Lukas Neuhardt, 27, had forgotten to put the safety catch on when he stuffed the gun into his trouser pocket to impress pals in Saarbruecken, Germany.

He told paramedics that a masked mugger had blasted him in the crutch in a bungled robbery.

--

Now - after surgeons stitched his manhood back together - he's facing up to three years in jail for breaching Germany's tough new anti gun laws.

” would-be gangster shot himself in the crutch when his gun went off half cocked”

You just can’t make this stuff up.

In more ways than one. Ouch.

Talk about adding insult to injury.

Okay, one of the better arguments for gun control in Germany. If even the gangsters can’t figure out how to use them...

Glock strikes again! I can throw my S&W up against a brick wall and it won’t discharge. Why is it everyone seems to shoot themselves with a Glock?

Dang suspicious cops. The mugger could have put the gun in the guy's pocket before he shot him. Uh...and that's why his fingerprints are all over it. That's my story, Your Honor, and I'm sticking to it.

US gangsters can't figure it out either. They hold their pistols like a power drill. And don't even get me started on their wimpy calibers.

I once defended a client who shot-off one of his own testicles in a botched bank hold up. He was not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

OR

his half cocked gun went off in his cockpit.

I saw a show about about the calibers used in “hits” and that smaller ones were favored because less power meant that instead of going completely through the skull leaving an exit wound, the bullet tended to just ricochet around inside, thus pretty much guaranteeing death.

*shrug*

Dunno if it’s so but it seems logical....and very gory.

I’m pretty sure that’s a Beretta. The only thing in 9mm worth owning better sling lead at about 400 rounds per minute.

His gun went off, now he is half cocked.

Where are you coming up with Glock? The story doesnt say anything about Glock, and the gun in the picture is a Beretta.

You can accomplish that same effect by choosing the type of projectile. Jacketed Pre-Fragmented or JPF ammunition is #12 birdshot in silicone surrounded by a frangible copper casing. They expend 100% of their kinetic energy within a few inches of impact and create LARGE cavities. A .357 Glaser creates a permanent cavity the size of a cantaloupe.

Very few wounds to the torso from JPF slugs are survivable.

I posted the picture from my own site. Odds are really good that a German guy with a pistol is carrying a Glock, agree? Glocks seem to misfire often. Maybe it’s just me but I seldom read about someone shooting themselves with a Taurus or S&W. It’s almost always a Glock.

I hate those things. I never liked that trigger safety combination, nor internal hammers - at least on handguns.

I have Police training from the service and I would never own an automatic.

They scare the bejeebers out of me. Fun to shoot, though. But I could never shake the feeling I left it armed even AFTER I pulled out the ammo. Especially after I witnessed someone blast a round into the clearing barrel.

He wasn't half cocked until after the gun went off.

“Glock strikes again! I can throw my S&W up against a brick wall and it won’t discharge. Why is it everyone seems to shoot themselves with a Glock?”

Sigh. More glock ignorance on display. You can drop a glock from a helicopter and it wont go off. It ONLY goes off when the trigger is pulled. People too stupid to keep their fingers off the trigger when putting a gun in their pants should carry S&W.

Have you ever seen a Glock?

Show me a Glock with an external safety that can be clicked on by the user.

However, I would agree that throwing s S&W against the wall is an appropriate action. The POS might stick!

I was making no assumptions, I for one am for sure not a Glock fan, but the story at the link doesnt mention Glock and the picture at the link is a Beretta. it is an evidence photo as you can see the ruler at the top edge. That does not guarantee that it was the gun used, as Brit journalists are likely to take whatever license they deem necessary to fill a story.

Was Hitlery there?
