A man by the name of Eric Morkert was doing the responsible thing and taking a firearms safety class. He was learning all about gun safety and how not to be that dumbass who shoots himself.
And then guess what happened? He shot himself. The accident happened in Florida (of course) while Morkert was driving home from the gun safety class early Friday morning. When police officers arrived at the scene, they found Morkert inside his truck with a gunshot wound to his leg.
The man explained to the officers that he had just left a firearms safety class. He claims that he pulled his truck over to inspect his new Glock 17. According to Morkert, he removed the magazine and was manipulating the slide when the gun went off.
After listening to his story, emergency officials rushed him to the hospital to treat his wounded leg. Thankfully, police took the gun away from.
Well, that’s embarrassing. I can’t figure out if Morkert should feel more embarrassed or if his instructor should.
