Man accidentally shoots his penis

In Chandler, AZ a man borrowed his fiancé’s pink gun, tucked it into the front waistband of his pants and walked to the grocery store. Somewhere along the way the gun discharged

The gun fired, striking Seto’s penis and continuing through his left thigh. The bleeding started immediately and was heavy, according to police dispatch recordings released Sunday.

“He is still conscious, there is just a lot of blood,” Christopher, 26, told 911 operators and dispatchers when the accidental shooting occurred Tuesday.

The movies and TV shows, like Sons of Anarchy, that show tough guys with guns shoved into their jeans are not realistic, Chandler Police Detective Seth Tyler said Sunday.

The cops and robbers of the silver screen most likely use rubber weapons, which weigh far less than the real things, Tyler said.

Remember kids, use a holster.

    That’s called “natural selection”.

    Holsters everyone, spend a few bucks on a holster!

    OW!

    Use a holster
    Very good advice

  • SpudGun

    ‘cocked’, ‘load’, ‘went off in his pants’…argh, there are just too many jokes to choose from!

    After much deliberation, I’ve gone for this one in an attempt to be original –

    ‘Depending on how the operation goes, he might have to restrict himself to ball ammo.’

    A little obscure, but hopefully unique in the responses.

    as the moil said, “it won’t be long now”

  • Nater

    Has anyone seen The Way of the Gun? Yes, there are some Hollywood moments in it (the Galil in the brothel) but the bodyguards carry their USP inside the waistband and I’m fairly sure the anti-heros use holsters for their 9mm Government Models as well.

    On a side not, Charlie Hunnam has done amazing things for my sex life. I look like his younger, skinnier, less attractive brother but it’s definitely close enough. Dude should learn to use a holster, though.

  • Mobious

    Looks like only his fiancè has a gun now… the lack of holster use, no idea of safeties, finger always on the trigger… you need a license to drive cars but gun usage generally does not…

  • Jeff

    lol, I’ve always felt uncomfortable tucking it in the waistband, a LOT can go wrong, fall off, get caught in underwear…shoot your balls off… its the equivalent to the bra holster

  • Greetings from Texas,
    Priceless!

  • Pete

    Very dangerous! Almost as dangerous as cheating on your Korean girlfriend!

  • Woodroez

    When you ask him how many inches the bullet penetrated, he’ll say it was eight when it was really five and a half.

  • Alan

    An accident like this is no reason to go off half-cocked.

  • JT

    He could have purchased a pair of thunderwear and paid for this privilege. Those undie holster always made me cringe at the thought of wear the gun would be pointed even if they were “proper” holsters covering the trigger guard.

  • Clodboy

    Seriously though, tucking a gun into your waistband is a bad idea not only because of accidental discharges, but also because walking into a store with your gun “concealed” like that just screams “would-be robber!”, which could also lead to a lethal misunderstanding if the guy behind the counter is armed.

  • Madeleine Goddard

    At first it sounded like a real cock-up to me… but on second thoughts I guess that is a bit limp.

  • Heh, a juicy bit from across the pond: a cop (plainclothes one) shot himself in the ass with his service Glock over here some time ago. Why? Because he carried it tucked into his waistband. Why the dumb schmuck didn’t get a proper holster remains a mystery. Even a $20 job would do.

  • Avery

    If accidental discharges to the groin keeps would-be stick-up men from turning to a life of crime, you’d think the police would be all for more depictions of tough guys stick guns in their waistband.

  • Netforce

    I always wonder how a guy can tuck a gun (either a revolver or a pistol) into their pant and walk casually. Shouldn’t its weigh make you walk uncomfortably worrying the gun might fall? Guess the guy will invest in proper holster now.

  • Bob Z Moose

    To make matters worse, the guy was numbed out on pain pills AND the gun was a lil’ pink Taurus .380.

    @ Spudgun
    You forgot “decocking lever”.

  • “gunner”

    in this case what he pressed turned out to be the “decocking lever” in the end.

  • The moral of the story is…………….. dont carry a pink gun x)

  • SpudGun

    @Burst – LOL!

  • tommy2rs

    Having everyone know you carried a pink gun is bad.
    Having everyone know you gave yourself a Prince Albert with a pink gun: Priceless!

  • gunner

    he should at least get a darwin award “honorable mention” for his pains.

  • Incredible, man shoots his penis with girlfriend’s pink gun.
