This is still hands down my favorite truck ever. Period. It makes no sense at all and never should have been built, and yet here we are.
Saw “flamethrower” ... Am disappointed it’s not this
I’m not an SUV guy, but if I had to have one RR sport would be it. New or with warranty of course haha.
It’s one of those things where there was never any problem between us, he’s just naturally a hermit. I reached out to him on father’s day and was surprised that I got a response. I’m going to try to see him more often now. He’s not getting any younger and I’ve been worried about him, but it’s good to know he’s doing…
On an unrelated note, I met with my dad for the first time in like 9 years and hung out with him for a while. It was a good time.
Right on! Makers is awesome with good Ribs.
Whiskey is a good thing. Or whisky. I don’t care whether it’s Scotch or Irish whisky or bourbon or sour mash or what not, it’s proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
Because of this...
I won’t carry my Shield with one in the chamber, for this very reason. I also do a chamber check mag check every time I take a gun in my hands. My father in law drilled that into me, and I thought it was excessive, but I appreciate it now, especially after stories like this. Lucky for you , you didn’t do something…
I do. I would say I check them at least 5 or 6 times before I clean them. I get super paranoid about safe gun handling, but I coach a junior smallbore rifle team so I kind of have to be. Gotta set a good example for the youngins.
I always say life is too short for us all to make our own mistakes, we have to learn from each other or we'll all end up dead. Thankfully you're still with us! Good luck with your recovery, keep us posted.
We in the gun community have a saying. There are two types of firearms, those who have had an accidental discharge, and those who will have an accidental discharge. In your case, you kind of fell into the latter camp.
Shit man, that really sucks. Kudos to admitting your fault, and here’s to a speedy recovery!

Thanks for having the humility to post. Reminders are always a good thing and maybe this post will save someone the same misfortune someday. Sorry you had to learn the hard lesson but at least the consequences, as you pointed out, were not as bad as they could have been.
Thank you for having the courage to share your story. It really, really sucks that you shot yourself in the leg, but I’m glad it wasn’t worse. I hope you make a speedy recovery.
Speedy recovery man!
I am a huge gun supporter and I hear you on your point here. Guns are no joke. Not to be messed with.
Wow that sucks. That’s a really shitty way to learn about not making assumptions, but if it makes you feel any better it’s a mistake a lot of people could have made. Just glad you’re getting better and nobody else was hurt.
That sucks. Get better soon.
