From the Pissing on My Leg and Telling Me it’s Raining department comes this little blurb from almost heaven, West Virginia. “Two Marshall County deputies were shot during an “unfortunate accident” involving their weapons late Monday at the home of one of the deputies. Both received gunshot wounds to their hands and one also sustained a wound to his hip, according to Sheriff John Gruzinskas. The names of the deputies were not released at press time. Preliminary reports indicate that the deputies – two of the sheriff’s department’s armorers – were working on a department-owned firearm when it malfunctioned and discharged, according to Chief Deputy Kevin Cecil.” Armorers. Working on a loaded gun. And they were shot because the darned thing “malfunctioned.” Tell us another one, Deputy Dawg Cecil.

  1. Normally, I wouldn’t care. But if this happened to non-cops, the cops would point out how stupid the people involved were and how “regular” people shouldn’t fool around with guns.

  2. Who wants to bet the cops were either 1) drinking, 2) wrestling and practicing their weapon retention training, or 3) all of the above?

    How else can one of them get plugged in the hip and BOTH of them get winged in the hand? It sounds better if we’re told they were simply trying to polish the sear of an empty SIG or Glock. Yup. Sure.

    As Special Agent Cyril Montana said in The Milagro Beanfield War, “Sheriff, this posse couldn’t find *itself*.”

  3. These two fools are really big liars, and it’s against the law to file a false police report. They had to being doing something extra stupid in order for both of them to be shot in such a manner. I’m sure Forrest Gump would have something funny to say about these two morons.

  4. See, you guys have completely misjudged the situation. You look at the fact pattern and see two officers who were fooling around, or maybe two officers who don’t know the proper protocol for cleaning a handgun. I look at the pattern and see two officers having a duel to the death, but neither one of them can shoot for shit.

  5. Ralph, since you’ve insulted their marksmanship, they’ll both challenge you too. Not that that would be cause for much alarm…
