For malicious wounding, assault w/ a deadly weapon possession of a firearm during a commission of a felony and possession of cocaine w/intent to distribute. On Thursday night coming out of a bar my friend says that they were leaving the place in their car when 2 guys started mouthing off, well, instead of driving away this one dude grabed his berretta got in the guys face and they started grappling and the gun went off 1 inch from this one dudes ear. Those in the Roanoke VA area heard it on the news last night. This sucks for us gun owners because the perp. had a ccw and because he is a complete dumbass we look bad.

Damn, now I feel real bad and stupid after getting a CHL here in Texas. Man what a mistake. I shoot all the time and strip my guns down for cleaning just to kill time. I guess I'll have to stop all that now that I have a CHL and try to forget how to shoot. Man, that is gonna take some time. Just kidding beer_slayer. I know what you mean. I've met a few myself that bought one gun to carry and have only shot it maybe once. It's kind of goofy.

[b]THAT[/b] is my biggest fear about the "average" person with a new CCW permit. And people don't comprehend the utter stupidity of such a practice.[thinking]I'm a damned decent pistol shooter - not the best around by a long way but far from incompetent. And just being able to stay at a level of proficiency that I'm comfortable with requires 400-500 or more rnds of practice a month. [:D] It's one thing work out on steel plates for 3-4 magazines, and warm up into a routine where you can double tap 3 consecutive plates accurately and quickly. That's not the kind of proficiency I'm after. I have to practice constantly to be able to make the first 6 rounds "out of the holster" quick and accurate. In a SHTF scenario, I'm not counting on having or needing time to warm up. You gotta be good "cold" - and that takes practice. Constant practice. [uzi]

I personally go to the range atleast once a month, sometimes 4 or 5 times a month if possible. VthokieShooter's friend's, "friend" made the first mistake of carrying a weopon to a bar, especialy if he was there to drink and have a good time. Alcohol doens't mix well with short tempers and a gun.

Me too, right now he is looking at 4-10 in pound-me-in-the-ass prison. I think prozak may help him calm down too. Go Hokies!!! Here is the news story: By SHAY WESSOL THE ROANOKE TIMES BLACKSBURG - Police arrested a Virginia Tech student Friday some 12 hours after a gunshot narrowly missed the head of a 22-year-old fellow student during an argument in the parking lot of the Four Points Sheraton Hotel. Scott Ryan Dillon, 22, was arrested around noon on charges of malicious wounding, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and brandishing a firearm. He is being held without bond in the Montgomery County Jail. The shooting occurred about 12:30 a.m. Friday after the argument "escalated to a slight physical altercation," said Lt. Bruce Bradbery of the Blacksburg Police Department. Words gave way to pushing and shoving. Soon after, a man pulled a .40-caliber handgun from the waistband of his jeans and fired one round at the victim's face, he said. Bradbery said he did not know what the argument was about. The victim, Brian Frank Fisher, had been in Attitudes, a nightclub that is part of the Four Points Hotel, but police were unsure if the suspect had been there too, Bradbery said. The gunshot missed, but Fisher suffered powder burns, a slight eye injury, abrasions and a minor hearing loss, Bradbery said. Fisher was treated and released from Montgomery Regional Hospital, Bradbery said. The man who fired the shot fled the hotel parking lot at 900 Prices Fork Road as a Blacksburg officer approached the scene minutes after the shot was fired, Bradbery said. Police later contacted the suspect at his home. A gun was recovered.

I'd like to make one observation here - until CCW laws were passed, morons like this one would carry without. All CCW did was let those of us who intend to be responsible, law-abiding citizens do it too. They [u]should[/u] throw the book at him. He represents the tiny fraction of idiots who go through the CCW process and then do something illegal with a firearm. By and large even the people you complain about that don't practice and don't clean their weapons are not a threat to society - they're a net benefit.
