    Hiker accidentally shoots himself in the rear
    (AP) – 19 hours ago

    WENATCHEE, Wash. — A hiker on Blewett Pass shot himself in the butt when he put a handgun in his back pocket. The Chelan County sheriff's office said the 52-year-old Snohomish man had moved his .40-caliber handgun from its holster to his back pocket Saturday to see if that position would be more comfortable.

    The Wenatchee World reported the gun fired the bullet down his left buttock and left leg, coming to rest just above the knee. He was treated at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee.

    I'm a fan of good holsters and do not understand why anyone would spend $500 on a handgun then not spring for the $80 holster. But this guy obviously had his finger on the trigger. LOL

    A Snohomish accidentally shot himself in his left buttock Saturday when he put a handgun in his back pocket.
    Darrel Elam, 52, was preparing to go hiking on Blewett Pass and had moved his 40-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun from its holster to his back pocket to see if that position would be more comfortable for walking, said Jerry Moore, chief of administration for the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office.

    The gun discharged and shot down his left buttock and left leg, coming to rest just above his knee.

    Elam was treated at Central Washington Hospital and released, a hospital spokeswoman said. The incident happened on Blewett Pass about 12 miles from Peshastin.

    He put it there to see if that position would be more comfortable? He didn't have to carry it there long to figure out that it wasn't!

    I'm guessing he will be the butt of jokes for years to come. I know its a bad pun but someone had to say it.

    Given what is typically pretty poor/ignorant reporting about gun issues, couldn't this simply be a reference to the caliber (".40 S&W"), and not the brand of gun?

    Didn't you know every gun in the news is either a Glock or Military style assault rifle?

    Or better yet, I'm surprised it didn't read "Man shoots himself with a Military style Glock that can be taken through airport metal detectors".

    From Jay Leno last night.

    In Washington, a man put his gun in his back pocket, and accidentally shot himself in the butt. When interviewed, he said, I’m just glad I didn’t have a front pocket. :D

    I bet he is feeling pretty bad right now, and not proud of doing something this stupid. I am sure he has learned a lesson better than most people have.

    One would hope most people don't need to learn that particular lesson.
