You don't think, you know!!

"We had one of our officers accidentally shoot another one of our officers," said Interim Shelby Police Chief Jeff Ledford.
A 13-year veteran of the Shelby Police Department, Detective Todd Vickery, was struck in the thigh after Officer Randy Conner pulled the trigger of what he thought was an "air soft" training gun.
"And it turned out to be the real thing," Ledford said.


People firing guns they "thought" were unloaded, now this guy shoots another officer because he "thought" he had an air soft pistol. You weren't thinking! there buddy, because if you were thinking you would have checked & known it was an a air soft before starting the training session, we can never get beyond being anal, when it comes to firearms safety!! We never assume, we never think, & we check & we check & we double check!!
Glad it was only a thigh wound & not COM
