    Two men trying to trace a loaded .357-caliber Magnum as a pattern for a tattoo accidentally shot themselves, the Otero County Sheriff's Department said Monday.

    First lesson in learning-to-shoot class: Always assume any gun is loaded until you personally check to make sure it is not.

    Bet they are trying to figure out "how many guys does it take to change a light bulb" too.

    I guess it didn't occur to them to trace a picture. To think people that intelligent are allowed to have guns. scary.

    I doubt they were "allowed" to have it. LOL. Wonder if the gun was actually registered to either one of them.

    When they had that on the news my husband and I both cracked up. I just wanted to burst into a rousing chorus of "Here's Your Sign".

    That's kinda like the security guard that told his partner to try and stab him while he was wearing his kevlar vest...

    But my question is, how do you pull the trigger while tracing a gun???

    That's ridiculous.. did they forget one was in the chamber? I've never heard of such a thing to begin with.. why didn't they just scan or find a picture of the gun online? The tattooist certainly does not sound like a professional.
