Authorities say a Central Texas woman aiming for a skunk accidentally shot her husband when the bullet ricocheted.

Brazos County Sheriff Chris Kirk says the husband was expected to be released Monday from a Houston hospital. Kirk says the accident happened Sunday night at the family’s house near College Station. The husband was inside.

The sheriff says the wife, who has a concealed handgun permit, came out of the home’s detached garage and saw a skunk. Kirk says the woman fired a .45-caliber handgun at the animal but missed.

The liberals are doubtlessly going to attempt to use this event as justification for banning all guns, but the husband is likely taking it all in good humor. The people who whine about guns the most have never seen one, fired one, or been shot by one.

Cop: “Just one question, Ma’am. Do you know what kind of skunk it was?”

Woman: “Yes. It was a low-down, good for nothing, lying, cheating, beer-swilling skunk who told me that my rear end looks fat!”

There's a documentary on odd shooting accidents. The one I remember was at a shooting range, with the main building above the range, on a rise.

The shooter had had his automatic customized with easier trigger pull, and apparently fired off an extra shot on an upward kick while double or triple tapping. It went between some spaced overhead planks, over the berm, into the building, skimming the ceiling before being directed down through a sheet rock wall, into one of the most unlucky persons ever, sitting in a chair in the back room of the building. RIP.

From the article: “Kirk declined to release the names of the couple.”

I’ll bet that the husband was PLEADING with the police not to divulge their names. LOL

Reminds me of that story a few months ago where some guy shot at and hit what he thought was a wild pig that turned out to be his girlfriend.

I have never whined about guns and I never intend to be shot by one either. My barrel is always pointed at a target and I ain’t a target!

"Central Texas woman aims for skunk, shoots husband"

Potato, potahto. I am a little curious to learn if the husband she shot is (was?) hers or the skunk's.

I'm betting she was aiming at her husband. Who shoots a skunk with a .45 right by their house/garage? Dead skunks STINK. Heck, who shoots a skunk, anyway? Just don't do anything startling and wait for it to wander off.

Yeah, the matchup in varmint size vs. caliber sounded suspicious to me too. Hadn’t considered the olfactory implications, but that’s an excellent point.

We ignore sulfhydryl compounds (or thiols or mercaptans, if you prefer) at our peril.

What, he couldn't tell that before he started dating her?
