    Oh man, thats not good
    On the other hand it looks like the damage is about as light as possible....while still being shot in the foot. How did you manage that?

    If this is your foot, go to the ER immediately, you need surgery.

    Holy geez! Hope you're OK!

    There are a few other expletives that come to mind besides "ouch"... but they're not as NWFA friendly.

    # 1. Treat every weapon as if it were loaded.
    Never assume a gun is unloaded, no matter what condition you believe it is in.

    #2 Never point a gun at anything you do not intend to shoot.

    # 3Keep your weapon on safe until you are ready to fire.

    #4 Keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you intend to fire.

    #5 GET TO A DOCTOR ASAP. My first instinct wouldn't be to take 4 pictures....

    Looks like it is starting to heal nicely. Maybe double sock it for a few weeks. Missed the toe nail, which is good, I lost a toe nail off my little toe once, that realy hurt.

    looks like a photo shop job, a wound like that would have some reconstruction and stitches

    I have seen that as well. I don't think it's photo shopped because there are too many people that do shoot themselves.

    I got this email about 5 months ago. Don't know when it happened. Believe it or not...My uncle did the EXACT same thing with a .357 trying to be quick draw McGraw. Be careful everybody. It's like racing motorcycles...it is not a matter of if you will go down...it's when will you go down. I think alot of people can back this up. If you play with guns...even if it is a passion...sometime in your life and your hobby, you WILL have an accidental discharge. It hapened to me with a 12 gauge shotgun. I almost took off BOTH of my feet bird hunting.

    motorcycle racing and fast draw are a bit different.... it takes MILES more practice and concentration to take a tight curve at 80mph than it does to REMEMBER TO KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER.

    Good point...It also doesn't help when your uncle decides to do a trigger job on his .357 and filed off a little too much. But in both situations...to take an 80mph corner on a track and make it...takes track time...to not shoot yourself in the foot and keep your finger off of the trigger...I think would also take a little practice...Brain fart! :laugh:
