A National Rifle Association employee accidentally shot himself Thursday when his pistol discharged during a firearms training, police told NBC News 4 on Friday.

The unnamed 46-year-old man sustained the injury while putting his gun in his holster at the NRA's National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia, according to NBC News 4. He suffered a minor injury to his "lower body."

I wonder if he'll be discharged? You know, asked to, " take a powder?" An event like that might trigger a firing.

Wisconsin this month will vote to remove any training, and I believe also, any permitting for conceal carry. Just buy a gun, and stick it in your pocket, and walk around. Should be interesting, or maybe not.

Just a crack shot?

Probably using a Glock, sure wouldn't be my choice.

Pretty hard to shoot yourself with a revolver unless that's the plan.

Unless it's a Webley-Fosbery.

Well training is obviously dangerous. This would not have happened without it. Logic you see, just logic.

I know that gun enthusiasts won't hear this, but this is why I don't own a gun (or strong acid, or explosives, ...). If my mistakes must be compounded in this way, then the risk is just too great with far too little value.

Hopefully the bullet's path aligned with his butt crack, resulting in merely a flesh wound.

No mention of brain damage, so he must have hit his thigh, rather than his butt.

That's the caliber of employee, they have them barrel through their stock options. Ought to lock them up.

True irony would be if he hit his Johnson.

Reading this thread, I realize he's going to be the butt of a lot of jokes at work for a long time to come.
