Default keep this swic/nasioc'r in your prayers

My buddy Rocky (rockywrx) is in the hospital for tissue damage stemming from a shooting accident yesterday. In stable condition and doing well as of this afternoon. Dr says he believes it is all tissue damage with very limited nerve damage and he should fully recover in a couple weeks if no infection occurs. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers!

Ha nothing like that.

Bizzarre accident.

He bought an XD40 sub like mine this week and wasnt really used to it. When you break it down you are essentially dry firing it and it releases the slide. It seems to me that he was breaking it down as the slide lock was off, but the trigger was never pulled as the slide was still on when I ran in (when the slide lock is off and you pull the trigger the whole assembly drops off the top of the pistol). At any rate, I think that he accidentaly did the initial breakdown with the magazine in and took it off afterward, thus loading a bullet. With the slide lock off it puts the firing pin further out so when you close the slide its already in a "firing" position. This said, when he closed the slide it put a hollowpoint through his calf, and into his thigh.

Thank God it missed everything vital, and it was a hollowpoint so it stopped before clearing his thigh and causing more damage to himself or others.

This just goes to show you to ALWAYS double, triple, quadruple check ANYTIME you are dealing with a firearm. The couple seconds it takes could easily save you or someone elses life!

I spoke with him this afternoon and he was doing good. I am going to go visit him this evening so I will see how he is and post up how hes doin.

I have faith that he will be ok, I just hope that he and anyone else reading learns from this experience.

Pass on some well wishes. I'm glad he missed all the essential stuff, I hope his nurse is hot, and he has a fast, pain-free recovery. Was he alone when this happened? I assume the cops got involved. ?? When he gets feeling better, I'd really like to know the first thing that goes through one's mind when you accidently shoot yourself. Was thinking about that just this morning when I chambered a round after getting my handgun out of the trunk. Haven't been brave enough to see for myself. "Damnit, I really liked these pants."

Wow. Just read the second post from v8. I figured it was going to be another story of someone doing something stupid and getting shot.

Good to hear it was an accident and not someone 'playing' with a gun or trying to be 'hard'. Also good to hear that no one was killed.

Thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

Good to hear he is doing ok. A shot to the thigh is pretty scary with the femoral artery in there. I've seen people die from that.

For anyone who is not familiar, here are the 4 SAFETY RULES WHEN DEALING WITH FIREARMS!

1. Dont point a firearm at anything you do not wish to destroy.

2. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.

3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are on target ready to fire.

4. Be sure of your target and whats behind it.

Talked to him again this morning. He said that the dr said that he may be coming back home tomorrow evening.

Still doing well, starting to hurt alot but thats a good thing as that means the nerves are healing up. He is starting to be able to move his foot and curl his toes again which are def good signs.

I hope he feels better, yeah that is a really good sign, as bad as it sounds but feeling pain is a good sign and his ability to move his toes is even better. He might have some sensation loss where the bullet entered. I wish him the best.

Why? Aside from the uncorfortable grip, some-what bulky nature, and aweful trigger, I like the lack of a manual safety and that it will fire without the mag. Also like that they're reliability, inexpensive to fix, and won't discharging unless the trigger is pulled. The grip and trigger issues can be corrected, so they're more of a hassle than a stopper.

Sorry to hear about this. These types of accidents happen often (unfortunately). The real rule #5 is: Proper clearing procedures-ALWAYS!
