2 IDIOTS, 1 GUN SHOP: Police Officer Suing Gun Store After Shooting Off His Own Finger [VIDEO]


A former Kentucky police officer is suing a local gun store after he shot his finger off inside the store in a case of bad gun handling vs. horrible gun handling – plus a complete lack of personal responsibility.

According to a civil lawsuit, former Glasgow police officer Darrell Smith went to Barren Outdoors and asked to see a .380 caliber handgun.

An employee removed the gun from under the counter and handed it to Smith without checking to see if the gun was loaded.

Smith then takes the gun, likewise failing to check if the weapon was loaded, and holds it with one hand on the grip and the other hand near the muzzle. Smith says the gun “accidentally” went off (when he pulled the trigger), shooting off part of Smith’s index finger.


  1. NO gun goes off 'accidentally', It was a negligent discharge.

    1. Treat every gun as if it were loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger and outside of the trigger guard until you are ready
    to shoot....(booger hook off the bang switch).
    4. Be sure of your target and what's inline with your target.

    What a moron.

  2. Dumb, and Dumber!! Never take an offered firearm until it's been cleared first.... Then YOU clear it again!! This stuff is just to easy to do....

    1. Zero sympathy. There are consequences for stupidity. Next lesson, per my former drill sgt: NEVER assume, for assumption is the mother of all f--k ups!

  3. There isn't a shortage of hoplophobes who advocate putting rounds in guns @ gun shows or gun store to cause MAYHEM!

  4. I gave my son his first shooting lesson when he was six. I repeated the same phrase so many times that he still repeats it when we shoot together, "I don't care if I, your daddy who loves you, tells you the gun is not loaded. It's in your hand. You check to see if it is loaded." He will teach his son the same.

  5. What (if any) backlash be if the cop negligently discharged the pistol into the clerk? Or other bystander?

  6. I worked in a gun store back in another lifetime, and one day a guy came up to the counter and pulled a small revolver out from under his sweatshirt, put it on the counter and said, "I want to have white outline rear sights put on this". I kinda looked over the counter to see a pair of shiny back shoes on the guy. I picked up the gun, opened the cylinder, and lo and behold, it was loaded! I looked at him, told him we could do that, and dumped his ammo out on to the glass, and said, "I don't need those", and let him chase 'em down while I promptly walked over to get a work order tag for the firearm. My supervisors taught me well. Never pick up a gun and not check if it's loaded. Besides, I aced my hunters safety course when I was twelve. I was was smarter than that at an early age.

  7. A highly trained professional, no doubt! LMAO!!
