Another Stupid Criminal

Winston-Salem Journal | Police said would-be robber shot himself in the foot _ literally That's right, he shot himself in the foot, sort of....
According to an arrest warrant, Roberts dropped a .45-caliber handgun in front of Gasland USA on Sunday. The gun hit the ground and went off, a bullet striking Roberts in the foot.
Apparently some non-standard alterations had been made to the weapon. Though many older guns lack firing pin safeties and will discharge (or may discharge) if dropped. It is my understanding that most guns manufactured after World War II are safe from this kind of thing.
