    My dad (35 year veteran LEO) had more than one friend who blew a hole through their hand or lost a finger owing to sloppy discipline. The one I remember most clearly was the guy who lost his left middle finger (that would render me mute, as they say), when showing off his newly smithed "light trigger" to a friend.

    And I'm sure we all remember this guy. Why was it even loaded?

    The recoil pad doesn't look compressed enough for the officer to be leaning his weight on it.
    And IF some mentally challenged officer DID choose to lean on his shotgun, he would have had to go to some amount of fidgeting to get it at that photo-op angle, as opposed to first leaning the stock in full contact with the pavement, so it wasn't tippy as he set his butt on it to rest.

    I was at a gun range and I noticed a guy had an interesting pistol- a cheaper version of a Walther ppk- can’t remember the make/model at the moment. When he stopped firing I mentioned that I was interested in that model. He swung towards me, and as he did so he swung the pistol so it was pointed right at me. I was pretty furious, but I remained calm and asked him to please point it downrange as I sidled out of the line of fire. He still had his finger on the trigger, too, and it was live, loaded, safety off. Kee-rist on a cracker.

    Get caught doing that at the range I use and you'll be quickly (and not very politely) escorted out.

    Yes that isw a photoshop. It's a good try.

    The butt pad (the one attached to the stock, ya wiseguys) is not deformed.

    I’m laughing pretty hard now. Are you aware who the police hire? Historically not our best and brightest.

    The perfectly straight seam behind his right leg looks odd, no?

    Took a couple of buddies to a range in Modesto CA when I still lived out there, '93 or so. I took my little Ruger P89, but my pals rented guns, and one picked up a Sig the clerk was showing them and just swung around looking down the sights. Every guy behind the counter hit the deck, I slammed his hands down on the adjacent display case so hard I thought I'd surely broken the glass. In his defense, the moron actually said "but it's not even loaded."

    Anyway, that was my best man. ;)
    Right on. My father in law (rest in peace) was BSAP.

    Gives new meaning to the term "butt hurt".

    Are you saying he's become the butt of someone's cruel joke?

    my friend used to be a stripper and there was more than one time where the weapon of a plainclothes officer was accidentally discharged in the club. got a little too comfortable i guess.

    If that's a real photo, that is some major league stupidity right there.

    that right there is an act of sheer idiocy. he asking to be crippled for life, or killed. whoever runs that range needs to correct that crap.

    somebody there is just not taking safety seriously and it ain't funny.

    Looks like too many donuts to me. Unfortunately, complacency with tools happen.
