Discussion: Woman Shoots Herself In The Leg At Marksmanship Competition

Discussion for article #223969

Hmmmm… that was some feat!

Thinning the herd.


“Shoots Herself At Marksmanship Competition”

I assume she lost.


I trust that she got the ‘Most Creative Use of a Handgun’ award.

Is it a toy gun that plays “Wah wah waaaaaah” every time you pull the trigger?

Is the gun okay?

Leaders in the Ranking of States on TPM with the Most Careless Firearm Incidents

Pennsylvania/Texas/ Florida (tied) - 8
South Carolina - 6
Indiana - 5
Arizona - 4
Alabama/ California/ Georgia/ Michigan/ New York/ Ohio/ Tennessee (tied) - 3


Just trying to get a leg up on the competition.


After proving she was not a responsible gun-owner-- the mistreated firearm was whisked away immediately from the clutches of Siegried Betterley-- by gun rescuers.

It will be released into the wild of a Bass Pro Shop later this afternoon.



“Betterly was taken to a local medical center with non-life threatening injuries, Davidson said.”

Clearly, she needs a bigger gun.

If there was a target on her leg was she awarded a bullseye?

The only way to stop a bad klutz with a gun is a good klutz with a gun!

Oh my God, the tragic loss of that bullet. The NRA is having a funeral for it as we speak.

Why God !!! WHY??? That poor, innocent bullet …

Anyway, TPM left out the most important part of the source article:

“Investigators determined the shooting was accidental.”

She didn’t miss, at least.

Sez her: “Hey, dolts, I was aimin’ at my leg! Yeah, that’s the ticket! I win!”

A timed shooting contest? Does the winner get a trophy topped off with a little statue of Quickdraw McGraw.



She was aiming at her foot.
