    He is extremely lucky to not be more seriously injured. That area of the thigh has some massive blood vessels clustered together that can result in bleeding out in less than a minute. That’s what killed NFL player Sean Taylor a few years ago. And just because we’re on the subject: Never, ever, ever handle a gun without first making sure it’s unloaded. If it is loaded, only point it at things you’re okay with having a hole in.

    crazy fucker! I can’t listen to this at work but was it a straight through wound? Or was the bigger wound where they had to cut into him? I had a wound that deep once that had to be cleaned and packed every day for 6 weeks or so, and it was on my lower back so i had to go visit a nurse every damn day. My poor girlfriend had to take over for the weekend we went away, she was hating it!

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Dana doesn’t cut him, first time back in 8 yrs and before the fight he shoots himself while cleaning his gun because he can’t bother to check to see if its loaded? Which is gun safety 101. Also for once thank you fiveounces for not actually showing the picture, I have no need or desire to see it
