Apparently he was at the police academy doing downed officer drills and firearms training when something not so magical fantastical happened.
He just called it a "bad day at the office."
Let me give you some back story. He is an ex-Marine and nothing ever phased him. I never saw him get overly excited about anything. In fact, he was so calm it was eerie. I am glad he is my friend.
Add his dry humor and there you have the perfect Area 51 cop partner to counteract my crazy. He was a joy to work with and I do miss his antics.
Well...when I asked him about this, he said, "hit steel with the previous shot which was solid (so no squib) and then all fuck broke loose." I asked him if he crapped his pants. He said he did not, but he yelled "fuck" really loud. Word of choice. Describes everything out of emotion...good and bad.
I know you are all thinking "holy shitoly" and "damn, I would be so pissed about my lost of weapon about now." I mean, really pissed about that Glock.
Yep. Not happy. Well, you know the ginger in me would explode, but Greg mad is calm mad. I wonder what he looks like super mad? I don't know. Never have seen it.
He did like to stir me up and get me wound up on calls so I would let the idiots have it with one my Fargo lectures and snarls of disapproval. It was like when your little brother pokes you to the point you punch him in the face and you are the one who gets in trouble.
What happened to Greg, you say?
Yes, I was more concerned about Greg's injuries. Anticipating those types of concerns, he posted his injuries along with the destroyed firearm. He luckily escaped with minor ones. Thank, God!
The FacePlant comments. I wish I could share them. I will have to say that he was asked by fellow man if his vagina was OK. That's how we all roll. Snark and circumstance.
Doesn't he have nice hands? Like no manual labor ever crosses them or something. I wonder if he uses lotion. I should ask him that...it would make him tell me to "shut the fuck up"...but it would humor me.
So naturally, I asked what ammo did he use?
He stated it was factory RWS frangible ammo and thought it must have been an overloaded round.
Now something you should note. Greg is a firearms genius if there ever was one and keeps his weapons spotless and properly oiled. Everything is well taken care of and he is not lazy like me, allowing dust bunnies to formulate in his holsters or magazines. These are his babies. But it's no big deal for him to replace them. I get attached. Like there are memories in that piece of plastic. Years of stand by me type of thing. He really takes it all in stride.
Egads, Mertyle. That man needs a Guinness.
