I often dry fire my pistol while im watching TV. So tonight Ive been sitting here relaxing, watching comedy central and dry firing my Sigma getting used to the trigger. Got up and got something to drink. I come back and sat down, dog jumps in my lap, and I squeeze one off at John Stewart on the daily show.

BOOM! I got em he

Interesting though, It was a .40 S&W Sigma. It didnt penetrate the back of the TV. Copper Jacket got scattered all over the room, but no "exit wound" on the back. Im about to go digging for the bullet. Maybe pics when i find it.. Camera needs to be charged.

Dude...consider that your second chance at life. If this really just happened then you REALLY need to spend some time thinking about your gun safety skills ELVIS.



EDIT TO SAY: Make sure you UNPLUG the TV before you go diggin also!

Be sure to crack a window to let out the gun powder smell.

Don't ask how I know.

LOL, too bad this wasn't video taped.

It's probably one of the number one causes of TV deaths in this country. Make a copy of it and send it that asshole John Stewart, maybe send him a message of sorts.

The .380 The King used to shoot out his tv in Vegas was for sale on eBay or Gunsamerica a long time ago.

That's why you should never watch anything with John Stewart in it.

Why couldn't you have been dry firing in Hillary Clinton's direction?

Why did the innocent TV have to pay?

God damn, this world is unjust.

better know to check your chamber next time before you squeeze tha trigger. then check it again. the next time you/ your dog/ bystanders may not be so lucky. my .02, YMMV.

Thanks for having the sack to share.

You need to hang out with the dude who dry-fires just before he goes to bed and then puts a bullet through the wall while asleep.
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 7:44:21 PM EDT
I thought you were going to say you shot it because it was stuck on CNN.



Hope it wasn't a big ass LCD or Plasma, that would really suck.
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 7:44:24 PM EDT
Yes, I realize how incredibly stupid it was. Someone could have been killed. Im normally extremely safe with guns and have never had anything like this happen before. Valuable lesson learned and thankfully nobody was hurt. he
I'll hold off on dismantling the TV for the bullet until the camera charges a bit and I can get a pic.

Wait till the dog sees you pick up your pistol agian ! I did something similar stupid and killed a freezer W/ a .357 Mag . That was over 30 years ago . It still bugs the shit out of me .

Glad your OK , it's one of those things you only do once ....... Course a freind in gunsmith school no less had his one moment a couple years later and shot me in the leg .

Stay safe .

Pics!

Careful about digging in the TV, there are some very powerful capacitors in there that could kill you.
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 7:48:34 PM EDT
The King would be proud!

I won't criticize, glad nobody got hurt!

Remember, never point your gun at something unless you mean to destroy it.. Should John Stewart be worried? Subconcious thought maybe?
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 7:48:43 PM EDT

yes TV glass is very thick
There was a guy on the corvetteforum about 2 years ago killed his TV with his Polytech AK
it DID go through the glass
