Pinellas Man Accidentally Shoots Self



By STEVEN GIRARDI | The Tampa Tribune

Published: July 26, 2008

Madeira Beach - A man accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun he thought didn't work, but is expected to recover, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office reported.

Dale Roberts, 20, was with his girlfriend, Amber Howell, 20, in his apartment, 107 145th Ave., at about 2:45 a.m. today, deputies said. The two had been drinking and Roberts jokingly aimed the .25-caliber handgun at his head. Thinking it wasn't working, he pulled the trigger, the gun fired and the bullet lodged in his skull, according to the report.

Roberts was transported to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was being treated, the report said.

This dumb ass should be a Darwin Award Nominee!, As I feel the world would be better off. But if I could ask him a question it would be-So do you always put loaded firearms to your head and pull the trigger JUST because you think it broken?

Friends don't let friends buy mouse gun .25 ACP pistols, or drive drunk. Or handle pistols when drunk.

Twenty years ago, there was a teenager in San Diego who played Russian Roulette with a semi-automatic pistol. As shooters we know that doesn't work so well.

The story behind it was that he and his friend were trying to impress two girls. The boys did not understand the difference between the actions of a revolver and a pistol (or basic firearm safety). -The guy died.

I saw a guy that was shoot in the chest with a 25ACP , the round did not even penetrate the thorasic cavity. Very weak round, it's a casualty creater.

25ACP only has around 60lbs of energy. You'd be better off throwing a ill tempered house cat at them. IMHO.

As someone once said (who that is escapes me at the moment), those guns can be very dangerous. A person shot with one may resort to violence.
