I Shot Off My Finger!!! (8-1-17)

In General

No, this is not click bait. I didn't shoot my finger off exactly but I did shoot myself in the hand which did lead to getting my finger cut off. So if you call me an idiot and you won't be the first one, but you should learn something from my mistake. Always train on your new equipment, and never-ever-ever get complacent with your firearms. This video is to answer the unasked questions I'm sure folks have thought, as well as to be a help to anyone who has the unfortunate decision of whether or not to get a ray resection.

Wow, sorry to hear about this. In my CCW classes I go over different carry options and highly stress that people practice with a training blue gun or an empty gun (dry fire) hundreds of times before they carry live fire. Thanks for the learned lesson.

First time watcher of your vids. & I DON'T THINK YOUR AN IDOT FOR WHAT YOU DID. Don't let anybody tell you different, striker fired guns are much more dangerous than guns with a safety. Yes the trigger has to be pulled but it can be pulled or caught on something & go BOOM. I have striker fired handguns but I prefer handguns with a REAL SAFETY. YES WE WHO HANDLE GUNS TEND TO GET LAX WITH THEM AFTER AWHILE & THAT MY FRIEND CAN BE FOOLISH. VERY BIG of you to post what happened but PLEASE DON'T CALL YOURSELF AN IDIOT, these striker fired guns with NO REAL SAFETY EXCEPT YOUR FINGER & YOUR HEAD ARE THE CAUSE OF ALOT OF PEOPLE SHOOTING THEMSELVES. GREAT VID BROTHER.

Accidents can happen to anyone, thank God you didn't shoot anybody else. What you just shared might just help somebody and nobody should judge you because as humans we all make mistakes. Highboy

If the glove is a liner or another light weight material, I'll just flip one finger inside-out. If it's a work glove or a heavy glove then I'll just let the index finger hang out.
