You’ll Shoot Your Thumb Off

He DID it! – 

Tim Shoots His Thumb Off on ‘Doomsday Preppers’ Shooting “accident” on firing range.

We recommend that everyone – regardless of intent to own a firearm or not – take a gun safety class. These are readily available and usually run 2-3 hours. Participants can expect to learn how to handle firearms, determine if they are loaded, and how to make them safe, among other skills.

If firearm safety rules and guidelines are important for non-gun owners, they are even more so for gun owners. Because there is no competency test in order purchase a firearm, it is up to the gun owner to ensure a good working knowledge of their firearm and how to use it. Taking a class, again, is highly recommended.

      *+Rob M* Putting your thumb in front of the barrel isn’t a firearm malfunction, it’s due to a defective shooter.

    “Damn thing misfired on it” and he passes out while It looks like his kids are trying not to laugh at him. The best prepping this guy did was buying the 22 instead of a twelve gauge.

    “Just one of those things that happen ya know, i just pulled the trigger with my hand in front of the gun and it miraculously hit me in the hand.”

    That’s why cake butt dudes like you, shouldn’t own weapons. The ole “thumb in front of the barrel” scenario. I’m sure there is a warning for that in every doomsday prep manual. Second only too, how to avoid botulism.

  • February 22, 2017 at 1:10 am

    Misfire? I’m guessing he knows now not to misfire his gun with his thumb in front of it. Lol

  • February 22, 2017 at 10:29 am

    This guy doesn’t deserve to own guns. If you are really that fucking stupid that you put your damn thumb in front of the barrel of a gun that you are going to shoot then you need to immediately have all your guns taken from you. You make responsible gun owners look fucking stupid.
