A Texas man is licensed to carry firearms — even though he has no arms.
In a video posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, Michael Cargill, the owner of Central Texas Gun Works in Austin, showed the man, who was not identified, firing a gun with his feet.
“This young man had no arms, no hands, and he was able to actually shoot and pass and do exceptionally well at the gun range,” Cargill told KDFW-TV.
Cargill said it only took a few hours to teach the student how to fire the weapon, and he passed with “flying colors.”
“It brought me to tears, I wanted to cry because I was happy that I was able to help this young man,” Cargill told the television station. “He wanted to be able to protect himself.”
In the video, Cargill is shown behind the student, who loads a gun with his feet and shoots at a nearby target.
“He walked in, he said, ‘Hey, I want to learn how to shoot, I want to qualify to get my license to carry a handgun,” Cargill told KFDW. “I said ‘Piece of cake.’”
