The dog “approached” him in this account. The original news release said it, “attacked,” him. I know because I saw the news clip which had some five year olds playing with the big, scary dog in the background...

Stain removal @ the dry cleaners was probably costly!

My agency had a guy shoot himself in the leg putting a gun back in a holster. He still doesn't know how it happened. Shouldn't be possible because our policy is to have our thumb covering the hammer as the weapons is put back in the holster. If you hit an obstruction with the trigger you would feel resistance from the thumb holding the hammer down.

Shooting yourself while drawing a gun probably means this deputy has had bad habits for a while and his firearms instructors haven't been watching when he is at the range.

Evidently a dog is not threat, but an armed Deputy is.

“Shooting yourself while drawing a gun probably means this deputy has had bad habits for a while and his firearms instructors haven’t been watching when he is at the range.”

After applying Occam’s Razor the following materialized: “Shooting yourself while drawing a gun probably means you can’t fix stupid.

Stupid IS forever.

"Dwayne, how did this happen?"
"Well, Chief, I was minding my own business, thinking about all the times I screwed up. I said to myself, Dwayne, you sure are a dumbass. Why, you're such a dumbass, you'll probably get yourself killed one of these days."
"Then what happened, Dwayne?"
"Well, Chief, at that point, I was in fear of my life -- so I shot myself."

There are people that you take to the range and work on muscle memory for 6 weeks and they keep those good habits for a lifetime. There are others that dump all those good habits right away. The first group don’t shoot themselves or others accidentally.

There is always the possibility DumbCop was trying for his Dog Shooter badge and attempted a task beyond his mental/physical capability.

With the advent of cheap laser training devices like the little Laserlyte barrel insert thingie, anyone can now practice at home. For the non-professional shooter, it is the best invention since sliced bread.

Better, actually.

The stupid, clumsy, cowardly S.O.B. tried to shoot his mother? Or was Precious his aunt?

When I was 10, my Dad taught me to field strip a 1911. He showed me, then had me hunker down (newspaper on the floor to make it more filed-like) to try to repeat. My butt hurt, then my nose hurt - he gave me a short kick for not checking the weapon prior to working on it. Today, he might get in trouble for "imprinting" the lesson, but it's over 50 years ago and I have never touched a weapon without checking it and treating it like it was ready to fire.
