Paintball Safety – or – How not to check to see if you’re out of ammo. #2

Well, now that we have learned our lessons with the semi-auto guns, they eat up a lot of ammo, We have gone out and purchased several Sheridan PGP Paintball Pistols. Which holds 10 shots and 1 “in the chamber”. We are back inside the house getting something to drink. Now safety has become our major concern, especially after I SHOT MY FREAKING HAND OFF! Sorry, anyway, we are constantly checking to make sure that the safety is on, we dump out all our ammo before going inside. We had to repaint the living room after one of the semi’s were shot in the house because “Don’t worry, there’s no ammo in the gun. See?” and proceeded to fire the gun splattering the wall with paint. Back to the story. They ask me as a note of precaution, “Ed, is the safety on, on your pistol?” “Why yes!” I respond drawing my pistol, pointing it at my left hand. “See,” I say as I pull the trigger. And SHOT MY FREAKING HAND OFF, AGAIN!

I screamed like a cheerleader.

Rule of thumb kids. ALWAYS CHECK THE SAFETY FIRST!

NEVER ASSUME!
