Irresponsible (Flare) Gun Owner of the Day: Jorge Perez
Posted on February 6, 2013 by Dan Zimmerman

That persistent burning sensation Jorge Perez felt in his crotch wasn’t gonorrhea. If only. Instead, officers arriving at his Lehigh Acres, FL home found him with some toasty testicles as a result of a flare gun he negligently discharged. According to abc-7.com, “Perez told deputies he was playing with a flare gun that was unloaded.” We guess no one’s ever explained to Jorge that the four rules apply to all guns. “After dry firing the gun a few times, Perez says he then loaded the gun and put it down. When he picked it up, Perez forgot the gun was loaded and fired it at the ground. Perez told deputies the flare round struck the floor and ricocheted into his genital area.” One in a million shot, Doc. One in a million.

Two in a million. Sounds like a future candidate for a Darwin award.

I had a girlfriend that was a paramedic in Portland, OR. She told me about a guy at a gas station that had a 9mm stuck down the front of his pants. He decided to shift the weapon and it discharged taking his manhood with it......yow!

On the face of it, that sounds like a bad thing, however, people like that should not breed.

...and some folks say a 9mm won't do much damage! :-)

I was shot with a 9mm and it did a great deal of damage. Severed the inferior vena cava, hit the dome of the gall bladder, the left lobe of the liver, the mesentery of the bowel and the 4th lumbar vertebrae. 4 month hospital stay. Permanent limp.

Yep! I've always figured if the Germans invented the 9mm Luger round, they had a good reason for it. I'm a big fan of 9mm Luger, myself...

Were you shot with ball or jhp?

Ball, and it didn't penetrate all the way through.

Wow! I've been shot in the leg, but that's nothing compared to what you've suffered... :shock: Firearms safety is very important....
