Putting the gun in his pants was first mistake
Wichita Eagle ^ | Nov. 15, 2006 | STAN FINGER

Posted on 11/15/2006 9:20:12 AM PST by Ben Mugged

Maybe it was karma.

Three men attempted to kidnap a teenager in a dispute over stereo speakers shortly before 4:45 p.m. on Monday, Wichita police reported. One of the three pulled out a gun and fired it at the teen in the 1000 block of South Wichita.

The shot missed the teen. But then the shooter jammed the gun back into the waistband of his pants -- and it went off.

The bullet struck the 23-year-old man in his left testicle, causing him to cringe -- which caused the gun to fire again.

The second shot struck him in the left calf.

Police did not release information about the size of the gun he was using at the time.

The wounded man walked into Via Christi Regional Medical Center-St. Francis Campus seeking treatment, police said, and was later booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of aggravated assault and aggravated attempted kidnapping.

Yep, that's that's worth a cringe, maybe even an "owwie".

Sounds like his second shot went off half-cocked.

Only the left? If he'd hit both he could have been one of the few living Darwin Award recipients, since the criterion is not death, but selflessly removing oneself from the gene pool.

Well, the barrel length is probably 2" to 3" shorter then when he started.....

This started as a good pun but just petered out....

Of course, it would be easier for us to search for previous posts of an article if the journalists would stop trying to be "cute" with the headlines, and just said something like:
Fool Shoots Self In Balls
but I suppose that would be too easy...

Must have been a semi-auto. It's a wonder that every time he winced from a shot that it didn't go off again making him look like a break dancer.

And it was truly a selfless act on his part, like in "I would give a left (or right) testicle, if I could straighten out this misunderstanding."

Cost of bullet, $0.75

Hospital expenses, $8,473

Lesson learned, priceless.

I just knew it was going to say that the second shot took out the other one. Darn.
