Don’t let this happen to you!
Seriously, there are some really short guns in the world, and when you grab one with both hands, there is often a tendency to hold the gun farther forward than you should.

The cloud of meat spraying away from the muzzle could have been part of his anatomy, had he been less wise. Instead, it’s what used to be a hot dog.
Even for those of us who know better, this is a good graphic reminder of what not to do.
Let’s be careful out there, folks!
