TAYLORSVILLE — A 34-year-old man has been arrested for investigation of multiple counts of sex abuse against a 13-year-old girl.

The four-month relationship was discovered after a bizarre incident at the man's house in which one of his housemates was shot by a third housemate who was reportedly trying to shoot a mouse in his kitchen with a 9mm handgun, according to investigators.

I know the .45nutsfans call 9mms "mouse guns", but they are overstating the case.

Nope, I'd say that's a winner right there.

A winner for strangeness. Otherwise disgusting on so many levels!

Nothin wrong with hunting mice with a pistol, but I use a Ruger Single Six with CB caps. I 9mm would be SO LOUD.

I once had a neighbor, former USCG ship’s carpenter that among his numerous stories, was ordered to plink rats at some wharf they were tied up at. May have been in the Pacific during WW2.

That is SO stupid and dangerous!

Birdshot is much better.

Eaker shot a mouse in a deer stand with a .40 caliber Glock.

Wait for the mouse's flaming exit *before* shooting it! Stupidity should be a felony!

A REAL mouse hunter uses a wrist rocket and a ball bearing.

Sorry about the inappropos “ARMAGEDDON!”

I can’t help myself.

It’s like having a new sled on Christmas Day when there’s no snow. You’ve just ~got~ to find a way to use it.

Actually, you are to be commended for so quickly finding a story with many of the necessary ARMAGEDDON elements including discharges, rodents, multiple doofuses (doofi?) and serious injury that keeps emergency room staff in stitches while stitching.

I understand the Christmas/sled/no snow feeling. I've been looking for an apropos thread for this gem:
