I find it best to keep a hankie around for any accidental nocturmal discharge.

guns dont hurt people, a$$hats hurt ....

Worst. Snooze alarm. Ever.

Good thing brain dead didn't shoot Little Elvis off.

Heh. I know a guy who accidentally shot half his pinkie off one morning. He's been known as either "Tex" or "Virginia Chris" ever since.

I bet the NRA won't be putting him on any posters.

"He was holding his weapon..."

Uh huh.

Boy, he almost was a poster boy for "You can take my gun when you pry it from my cold dead fingers..."

I haven't had a problem with accidentally discharging in my sleep since I was a teenager.

"This is my weapon; this is my gun.
This is for shooting, this is for - OW!"
