    There’s almost nothing we love better than a man-shoots-self story, except maybe one submitted by our readers. This one comes to us from reader TB: “Man Shoots Self in Bathroom at Gun Show.”
    Those hooks in bathroom stalls are meant for coats, not guns.
    Authorities in Faribault report a Bloomington man accidentally shot himself in the bathroom at a gun show.
    Police Sergeant Richard Larson says the man suffered a hand wound as he was taking his gun off the hook in a bathroom stall. The 59-year-old victim was treated and released from a hospital Sunday. The gun show took place at the National Guard Armory.
    Now usually after we link to something like this, we usually make a snide comment, or point out that weapons are dangerous no matter who’s holding them (or at least who’s hanging them on bathroom coathooks, in this case). But this time we’ll leave the last word to our reader, who comments: “This guy was lucky it was his hand.”

    I bet the guy doesn't know the meaning of common sense. Hello, McFly are you in there?

    Ouch! I've heard of folks shooting themselves in the foot and even one or two shooting themselves in the rump, but shooting himself in the bathroom? That's gotta hurt.
