Man "goes off half-cocked" at Lowe's


I wouldn't exactly call this "home improvement". Talk about an itchy trigger finger.. Via the Seattle Times:

A man accidentally shot himself in the testicles at Lowe's Home Improvement store in Lynnwood Sunday afternoon, police said.

The man's handgun, which was in the waistband of his pants, went off at about 12:30 p.m. — an apparent "accidental discharge," according to Shannon Sessions, a Lynnwood police spokeswoman.

Wait. He was carrying his gun in his waistband... at Lowe's? In Seattle? Why? Did he expect a do-it-yourselfer to do it to him?

Is that your gun... or are you just ...

Talk about going off half-cocked.

I admit it. I have way too many "accidental discharge" jokes running through my adolescent pea brain. And don't even get me started on premature detonation...

Does Cialis work on ejectile dysfunction? Or projectile?

Wait! There's more! Liberalchik, my Twitter pal, just added: You might be a redneck if you blow your balls off at Lowe's.

So. How's that gunny shooty thing workin' out for ya?

  • Everyone knows you don't carry you gun in your waistband. You carry it in your back pocket

  • That must have been an interesting google search to find the chandelier. Although, seeing your back and forth with @liberalchick I'd say @tqnews (fourth edition) had it right in figuring you guys were doing "shooters" all afternoon.

  • Laughing too hard at your comments to comment...sorry.
