Alcohol and a rifle at 4:38 AM. What could possibly go wrong, right? We’re guessing there aren’t a lot of choices for amusement at that hour in Benton, Indiana. You probably have to go a ways to have some fun. But Farris Fisher seems to be a half full kinda guy. A guy with a motto like ‘you can never go too far.’ For him, the question wasn’t “what was he going to do,” the question was “what wasn’t he going to do?”
The answer, unfortunately, involved a loaded rifle. But he had nothing to worry about. He’s a professional. The question is, a professional what? wishtv.com has the details:
After investigating, police said Farris Ben Fisher, 34, from Fowler, IN was at the residence in rural Benton County when he accidentally shot himself.
Fisher was attempting to remove a Rugger (sic) 1022 rifle from a zipper gun case when the weapon went off accidently, according to police.
The shell entered the mid section of the front torso of the body and exited the lower chest area.
Even through his alcohol-induced fog, Farris probably could only ask himself one question when he realized he’d shot himself – “Where is you brain? Where is your brain?!”
We certainly hope Farris makes a full recovery. So while he admires the IGOTD award that’s been bestowed on him today, he’d do well to remember that life moves pretty fast. If you uncase your guns with the muzzle pointing at your gut, you could miss it.
