Someone forgot the first rule…

Man accidentally shoots self in penis

Via UPI: Police in Arizona are urging residents to practice handgun safety after a man shot himself in the penis while putting a gun in the waistband of his pants.

Chandler police said Joshua Seto, 27, shot himself at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday when he walked to Fry’s Food Store with his fiancée, Cara Christopher, and attempted to secure her pink handgun in his waistband, The Arizona Republic reported Monday. The bullet also struck Seto in the left thigh. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Chandler Police spokesman Seth Tyler said it was unclear whether Seto suffered any permanent damage from the incident. Tyler said officials are urging residents to practice handgun safety.

“Whenever you handle a firearm, whether you are a novice or experienced, always treat firearms as though they are loaded,” Tyler said. “If you are going to carry a handgun on your person, use a holster, not your waistband.”

Dude forgot the first rule of gun safety: Always treat a firearm as if it is loaded.  Learned that little lesson at 12 years old when dad had me shooting his gun.  Why in the world are you putting a loaded handgun in your pants?  Oh the humiliation of shooting yourself with a pink gun.  He clearly wasn’t using his head.  Yes, I had to go there :)

  4. Now, I’ve lived long enough to have heard it all. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a suicidal penis. I know that’s what I would tell people if I were stupid enough to shoot myself there. This guy followed the wrong directions, he was supposed to use a pea shooter!

    “Maybe he threaten to shoot it if it didn’t stand at attention while with his fiancee?”

  8. Here, let me have that gun before you hurt yourself,little -lady. I hesitate, but …. isn’t this an example of the Peter principle ? Ouch (smirk,snicker)

  9. Shooting oneself in the crotch is DIY castration. ;)

  10. Just heard part of audio of Cara calling 911. Dispatcher told her to grab a towel and apply pressure. Told her to “avoid looking at the wound” if possible. She says, “Too late, I did look at it and it’s pretty bad.”

    Wonder is she’s still going to marry him? :)
