    Washington hiker accidentally shoots himself in the butt while moving gun to back pocket

    A hiker on Blewett Pass shot himself in the butt when he put a handgun in his back pocket. The Chelan County sheriff's office said the 52-year-old Snohomish man had moved his .40-caliber handgun from its holster to his back pocket Saturday to see if that position would be more comfortable.

    The Wenatchee World reported the gun fired the bullet down his left buttock and left leg, coming to rest just above the knee. He was treated at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee.


    WELL DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hmmm...sounds like a Glock or one of theDAO/ striker fired guns. Guy needs to learn that you keep the ole booger picker off the bang switch until you want to shoot something ...and hopefully not yourself!

    I guess it was not more comfortable in the back pocket.
