Another negligent discharge with a potential gender bender outcome. Glock no less.
A 45-year-old Southfield Township man is recovering after accidentally shooting himself in the groin in Birmingham.
The man — a heating a cooling employee — had arrived at a home on Wimbleton to do some work around 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, according to Birmingham Police Cmdr. Terry Kiernan.
He has a license to carry a handgun and was wearing the .40-caliber Glock in his front waistband. As he arrived at the job site, he attempted to remove the gun to leave it in the vehicle.
“He’s standing in the driveway, he pulls out the gun and it accidentally discharged,” Kiernan said.
“His (work) partner says ‘Did you just shoot yourself?’ The victim is just stunned and can’t talk for 10 to 15 seconds.”
Eventually, the victim said he needed medical treatment and his partner took him to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital.
“He was in surgery yesterday but he is expected to make a recovery,” Kiernan said.
The bullet went through the victim’s penis and lodged in his leg, according to police.
The report will be sent to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office for a potential reckless discharge of a firearm charge.
“Any time a gun is fired off and somebody’s injured, you have to have the prosecutor review it,” Kiernan said.
Bad bad idea to Mexican carry with a Glock due to no external safety.
Just don't do it.
But if you must, at least get a trigger cover like the one shown here.
Keep that round in the gun's pipe, it doesn't belong in your man pipe.
