    Default Glock leg strikes again.

    Shopper flaunting his gun in checkout line shoots himself in the groin, Oregon cops say

    Mon, September 21, 2020, 8:17 PM EDT

    A man showing off his gun to a friend accidentally shot himself in the groin and leg, Oregon police said.

    Lincoln City Police said in a Monday news release that Nicholas Ellingford, a 29-year-old from Lincoln City, Oregon, shot himself Sunday at a supermarket.

    “Investigation revealed that Ellingford was inside the store and as he was waiting in the checkout line, he un-holstered a Glock 9mm semi-automatic pistol from his waistband so that he could show it off to a friend,” police said in the news release.

    Ellingford reportedly was holding the gun near the front of his pants when he accidentally pulled the trigger, police said.

    “The bullet entered into Ellingford’s groin area before exiting out the lower thigh of his leg, narrowly missing his femoral artery,” Lincoln City police said.

    Officials at the store administered first aid before medics arrived, according to the news release. He was then life-flighted to a hospital in Portland, police said.

    His condition was not known.

    “No one else was injured in this incident,” police said. “However a criminal investigation is ongoing, as Ellingford did not have a concealed handgun license and his act was found to be reckless since it placed several people in danger.”

    Yahoo has shut off it's comments on news articles because of all the negative feedback they get on their biased opinion pieces they call reporting.

    Well I don't particularly consider this Glock leg, since it doesn't seem like it happened when he was reholstering (or at least it doesn't explicitly say that)

    There are individuals that should not possess anything more complex than a rock. I take that back, this guy could hurt himself with a rock.

    So a guy pulled the trigger on his gun and it went off. Correct me if I am wrong but isn’t this how a gun is supposed to work?

    The discharge has nothing to do with the way Glocks operate, unless the guy was attempting to disassemble the pistol, in the supermarket, in the checkout lane, for his friend. Totally operator error.
