I cannot vouch for the veracity of the photograph.


But it sure wouldn't surprise me.

I worked the line (Air Force) for a while. You'd be surprised at the crazy ^&*# you see. Then again, maybe not.

yes thats a gun in his ear, and yes his finger is on the trigger.

Too bad there was no happy ending.

On the upside, he won't have to worry about protecting his hearing much longer and I won't have to pay his salary for much longer. Now that's what I call win-win baby!

We can dream.
And when his friend fires, the reflex to the loud noise...
Friend of mine says her nephew has applied to join BATFU. I, of course, said "Ooooh, nooo." She said it's OK, he's a really nice, intelligent young man. He won't abuse the authoritah or anything as he enFORCES all those unconstitutional laws.
Yeah, so was the shy, kind whitebread former coworker acquaintance who converted to Islam AFTER 9/11. We thought.
Why?!?
Peer pressure can do awful things to good people with good intentions. Especially the un- or mis-informed, and they are legion.

If only.

As for that BATFU nephew - tell the lady that if the kid is really nice and so on, then when his time comes, we will pray that whoever takes him out has a clean, quick shot, so he doesn't suffer. :o)

There's tough competition for the Darwin Awards this year! Hope he makes the final cut!

If he's anything like most ATF agents, he only stands to lose a fingertip if he pulls the trigger.

I watched a video once of an ATF genius who shot himself in the foot while preaching to kids about guns.

Only ones, indeed.

I know he is the "only one professional enough" to be on the range, but i want some clarification, is that a do or a do not? :snark:

and how would one go about shooting himself in the leg with the gun in his ear?
