I almost posted this in the Lounge, as it's almost too funny to be true.

Link to story

A German man has been deemed unfit to keep his firearms license after being shot by his dog in the arm, according to reports.

A Munich administrative court on Tuesday dismissed his appeal against an earlier ruling that revoked his license and hunting permit. The man – whose name was not released – was wounded in his arm in 2016 after his dog managed to release the trigger of a rifle left in his car.

The court felt he was unreliable ”because it must be assumed that he will handle firearms and ammunition carelessly in future as well."

It was not clear if he would appeal the latest verdict.

They just transferred the license to the dog which is only right.

I had to open this thread because the title had to be a misprint...

I think I might just agree with the court on this one.

So does that count as an AD or an ND?

Or a good shoot on the part of the dog?

Did the dog hit him where he was aiming?


I know a little about a lot of things, but I don't know everything. I'm in the minority these days.

Negligent, to be sure. If it were me though, I'd think that I would learn a lesson from it and be a lot more careful in the future. I think the court overreacted a bit.

Keeping a rifle loaded can get him into trouble as well, unless he has a hunting license.

They have to be transported unloaded.

So this might have been the reason why he lost his license.

Colorado has a similar law about loaded rifles in motor vehicles.
