Keep your booger hook off the bang switch.

Just heard from a friend that at a fun show in NC an LEO managed to shoot himself and a bystander while fiddling with an attendees handgun.

Will link to a news article if/when I find one.


Story here.

Those injured are not identified in the story. May not be the cop who was shot in the hand.

Also, "it went off?" Barring a very unlikey mechanical failure what happened was some mouth breather depressed the trigger.

Update 2:

The last article I read said that it was a shotgun that discharged when the case was unzipped so it could be shown to a LEO.

Funny how these stories evolve.  I got my original info second hand from someone who was there. Then the linked info, and finally the latest from

Update 3:

Deputy duscharged the shotgun while attempting to unload it. Injured two.

Um... WHY? All I can think of is the 'stop touching it' mantra...

The latest story makes even less sense.
