ABERDEEN, Wash. —

A 26-year-old man told Aberdeen police he was cleaning guns in his garage with his uncle when his pistol fired.

The shot Thursday wounded the 55-year-old man in his right arm.

KBKW reports police are still investigating.

Really?  “His pistol fired”?  I was under the distinct impression that all pistols require that someone load them, point them, and pull the trigger in order to fire.  This statement would almost imply that the pistol fired itself.

This is why we ALWAYS practice the Universal Safety Rules!  Thank goodness the man was not mortally wounded.
