Hiker shoots self in butt on Blewett Pass
A hiker on Blewett Pass shot himself in the butt when he put a handgun in his back pocket

By The Associated Press

WENATCHEE — A hiker on Blewett Pass shot himself in the butt when he put a handgun in his back pocket.

The Chelan County sheriff's office says the 52-year-old Snohomish man had moved his .40-caliber handgun from its holster to his back pocket Saturday to see if that position would be more comfortable.

The Wenatchee World reports the gun fired the bullet down his left buttock and left leg, coming to rest just above the knee. He was treated at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee.

Sounds like a problem with the dunce carrying the gun, not the gun itself.

Well, you never know when you might need to shoot some ass on the trail.

Spelling corrected above.

By the way, I hope that people haven't overlooked the irony of the name of the geographical location where the handgun incident occurred.

In this case the ass was both the doer and the doee. Efficiency is golden.

Just glad there was nobody else around. Somebody other than this person could have gotten hurt.

Blewett Pass is a very apt name for this place.
