DES MOINES, Iowa -
A man shot off his own finger while cleaning his gun Sunday evening.

Steven Johnson, 22, said when he finished cleaning the gun at home when he inserted the magazine into the gun and racked the slide.

He said he did not realize the gun was loaded and pulled the trigger to see if the weapon was working.

"The tip of his finger flew off and hit his mother," according to a police report.

Johnson's mother drove him to the hospital, where police were summoned. The report said Johnson's story checked out.

The report did not indicate if doctors were able to reattach the tip of Johnson's left index finger.

The gun, the report said, was a Tarus .380.

Unloaded guns are the most dangerous.

Can't fix stupid, maybe he'll learn a lesson.

I'm suprised he didn't look down the barrel to see if there was a bullet there.

Agree, if he had done that it would have prevented him from having future accidents.

Never assume a gun is unloaded. That being said, how do you shoot off your finger if your gun is in pieces on a table being cleaned?
This guy lied. He did something stupid and made up that story about it going off while he was cleaning it.

Why do you post?

YOU got nothing except the Cut/Paste you post from your Collectivist Victims Web Sites.

You NEVER have any reply to the smacking down by the Adults in the room, of the stupidity that is your Cut/Pastes.

Why bother?

You do YOU post? You never have anything sane to say? No one agrees with you. You are wasting what little time you have left on this earth ranting and raving like a drunk lunatic - which you may well be!

Sarcasm works well when it is used against a person with a minimum share of sensitivity, but against a blockhead, all you get is an"Oh yeah?"
