    Moderator note: the following links go to images of a gunshot wound to a foot that are quite graphic. If you're squeamish, you probably don't want to click on them, and if you're at the office, they're NSFW. They are, however, a fairly shocking example of what can happen to someone who fails to abide by proper safety procedures with a firearm.

    The email I received said he did it with a shotgun. I don't think so.......

    You may want to offer a warning for the graphic picture.

    I've seen this already but don't think it is out there too much.

    EDIT: It could have been a shotgun, possibly a slug; but not sure because a slug may have done more damage.

    It wasn't a firearm that did it, it was actually these guys:

    I'd like to know the who, what & where that should go along with these pictures.

    I think I would have chosen to have the boot cut-off my foot rather than trying to save it.

    I sure hope they got medical treatment for that foot. (It looks like they didn't...tsk,tsk.) If they didn't bleed out. Then the resulting infection will more than likely cause them to lose that foot.
    I sure wouldn't want to be in their shoes, that's for sure!:(

    I read on another forum that the guy was shooting trap and had the muzzle rested on his foot. At some point he forgot you aren't supposed to pull the trigger.

    Can't be true -- everyone knows birdshot is harmless. ;)

    Back in the 60s, I worked at a drive in theatre. The owner had a badly crippled hand.

    Seems he was hunting with his boys when one of the boy's shotguns jammed. Dad was working the action with his hand over the muzzle. He lost most of the center of his hand.

    All guns are loaded always and don't point at anything you don't plan on killing. I think that is a great rule of thumb and being a newer shooter I have to constantly memorize that and keep it in my head at all times to avoid what happened to this poor gentleman. I guess he is lucky it wasn't pointed at his face.

    Doesn't look like birdshot did that, but a slug is very believeable. If you look closely it appears that it was cauterized. If that's the case he got lucky and the lead stopped at the sole and sealed the wound.

    People can be so stupid

    After a motorcycle accident, I spent some time in the hospital with a man that had shot himself in the foot for the second time while hunting.
    He was still hunting under a tree and shot his foot.
    Sorry I don't recall the details from 1981.

    We're talking about a range of less than one inch. Despite what you see in the movies, shotguns don't spout shot in a cone of death which spreads immediately after exiting the muzzle.
