    Gun Shop Owner Shoots Himself In The Bals! Absolutely Hilarious!!!!!!

    A Juniata gun shop owner was accidentally shot while repairing a rifle, according to Altoona police.

    Robert E. Buchanan, owner of Pioneer Gun Shop, 615 N. Second Ave., was taken to Altoona Regional just before 10 a.m. Friday after he was struck in the torso by a 7.62 by 39 mm round, said Altoona police Lt. Jeffrey Pratt.

    Buchanan was wounded in the abdomen area, Pratt added. Polite way of saying he got it in the testicles.

    Pratt said all shootings are initially considered criminal investigations, but the shooting doesn't appear to be anything more than an accident. Buchanan was working on the rifle, which was not feeding rounds properly, when somehow the action closed and the round discharged, Pratt noted.

    Buchanan's condition Friday was not known, but Pratt said he had been taken in for surgery involving amputation.

    • It's BALLS, not bals, stupid. And they are not in the abdomen! Freak!

    • You really are a twisted freak. You seem all bent about Palin, Walker, Unions, and Wisconsin gun accidents. I bet you were a player in that states organized mob ruled assault on the state capitol. Are you sure you ain't that segway boy or that other freak who started crying the nite Walker mopped the floor with the jerk mayor from Milwaukee? I bet you are part of the Madison snarky left know-it-all crowd. I spend too much time in Iowa and Madison, and you fit the bill.
