    Truth or Fiction?

    So he has shot himself before? True or False?
    Visiting Hilltop and all the guns are legal? Truth or Fiction?

    Sept. 18: The 24-year-old Spanaway man had two problems: he carried guns, and he was accident-prone.
    An officer found him at St. Joseph Medical Center, bleeding from a gunshot wound. The man blamed himself.
    He said he’d been visiting a relative in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood. He brought three guns with him. He didn’t want to leave his .45 in the car. He put on his shoulder holster, started to strap in the gun, and fired a round by accident. The slug plowed into his leg.
    It wasn’t the first time. The man told police he’d shot himself before, less than a year earlier.
    The officer checked the man’s weapons. They were legal. He gathered the guns for safekeeping while the man received treatment for his wound.

    Truth or Fiction?

    How does one shoot them self in the leg with a gun in a shoulder holster? I would think you'd be more likely to hit the chest area. You'd also think he'd learn proper trigger control after shooting himself the first time.

    Probably a vertical holster.

    It's not so hard if you have a condition known as "Cranial Rectal Inversion". In many cases this condition is also responsible for one inflicting multiple gunshot wounds to themselves.

    May very well be true. Having worked in Spanaway, with guys from Hilltop.

    Hilltop not the best area at least it wasn't when I was younger.

    Nice.
