From the Beeb.... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/7654926.stm "Gun expert shot in hand sues PSNI Mr Woods' lawyers claim the proper safety procedures were not in place A police weapons specialist who shot himself in the hand is suing the PSNI. Peter Woods, 50, was dismantling a gun at a police facility in February last year when the accident happened. It is understood that he removed the magazine from a pistol, but a bullet in the chamber fired into his hand. He recovered from his injury. Lawyers for Mr Woods claimed in the High Court that proper safety procedures were not in place, and ammunition may have been faulty. " My bold - Seems as if everyone else is to blame except the cnut who pulled the trigger!!! It's not rocket science, it's a simple unload drill and what the fcuk was the tosser in question doing with one up the spout, hammer back and his hand in front of the muzzel anyway!!! Looks like a candidate for Met Commissioner has been found after all!
