You’re Doing it Wrong

This guy will be a candidate for a Darwin Award:

The victim reportedly held three handguns to his head and pulled the trigger, explaining that firearms are safe when they’re not loaded. A fatal bullet was discharged from the third gun.

I’m pretty sure the lesson here is don’t take gun safety advice from this guy.

    ‘Fraid he’s ineligible for the Darwin Award, since the article said he already had kids.

    It also mentioned he’d been drinking all day.

    Anyone notice the GF doing CPR on shot-in-the-head guy? Like a mechanic saying “I couldn’t fix the brakes, so I made the horn louder…”

    The “victim”??? I can think of many things to call this guy, but victim is not one of them.

    “I’m pretty sure the lesson here is don’t take gun safety advice from this guy.” That problem self-corrected.

    I’m pretty sure that violates all Four Rules, there.

      All except for rule 2…he was willing after all to destroy his head.
      That isn’t necessarily a bad outcome for the rest of the universe.

    i have not had any alcohol for over 30 years. and i was an exceptionally stupid drunk. still, i can’t remember violating all 5 of the 4 rules at once.

    Well, technically he was right: it was only the loaded gun that killed him…..

    Isn’t it weird and coincidental how, for example, you always find something that you’ve been looking for in the last place you check? Or in this case, the loaded gun was the last one he tried? Mind-boggling. :)

      1. why would you keep checking AFTER you found whatever it was?
      2. no chance at all he was gonna try a fourth gun!
