PSA: When Doing Press Checks – Do Them Right (WARNING – GRAPHIC – NSFW)

After laying out my case rebutting “The Folly of the Press Check”, I thought it only right that I should be the one to post the public service announcement on if you choose to do a press check, you should ensure that you are doing it right. Namely, following the four firearms safety rules (in any format):

  1. Always treat a weapon as if its loaded.
  2. Never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to destroy.
  3. Keep your weapon on safe until ready to fire.
  4. Keep your finger straight and off the trigger until your sights are on target.

Assuming one follows those rules, its nearly impossible to shoot anyone – let alone oneself. Sadly, one person did not follow the rules and managed to shoot straight through their hand.

Posted on Facebook by Austere Medical Management (WARNING LINK IS GRAPHIC, NSFW), the hapless victim of himself put a modern round through their hand to devastating effect. Looking at the wound, the victim discharged the weapon during direct contact and the hand took not just the round, but the uncorking pressure as well.

Remember, weapons can be and are fun when used safely, but make sure you use the right techniques for any weapons manipulation. If your handing violates any of the four major rules, it’s time to reexamine that technique – for your hand might be next.
