Keep Your Finger OFF the Trigger Until You Acquire the Target

That's one of the Four Commandments of gun safety, evidently not learned by this schmoe:

The 38-year-old was driving a car on the Mornington-Tyabb Road, opposite the Tyabb Airfield on the Mornington Peninsula yesterday, when it is thought he accidentally shot himself in the groin.

Senior Constable Bradi Owens from Victoria Police today said it was thought the man died from the gunshot before he ran off the road into a power pole.

His body was found in the wreckage by a passer-by about 8am (AEST) yesterday but ambulance officers believe the man had been dead for several hours before he was discovered.

"Investigations reveal the firearm has accidentally discharged hitting the man in the groin area before the collision occurred," a police spokeswoman said.

The guy was a fugitive, wanted for a stabbing. He shoulda stuck with knives.
