I saw this online and thought you all might appreciate it.

WARNING: The images in the following link are graphic and display images of bullet wounds. It is recommended that young children or the faint of heart NOT view them.

Man Fails to Properly Unload Weapon

Hopefully this is a little incentive for us all to be more careful!

Thanks Dave. Not only is this a story with graphic images of the wounds, it is a great reminder to always be safety cautious-Always. One mistake could be your last. I say read it and learn and don't repeat the mistakes this man made.
Always be safety conscious and always treat your weapon as if it were loaded, even if you know it isn't!

Odd... the man who shot himself said "This incident happened because I got so used to handling guns and taking them apart and putting them together that safety measures became automatic." I would argue that his safety measures had NOT become automatic -- he was A) not handling the gun as it it were loaded, B) keeping his finger off the trigger until on target, and C) he was pointing the gun as something he was not willing to destroy.

I am a firm believer that accidents happen because people become complacent with what they are doing, whether it be they have done it so many times it is "automatic" or they just don't care. Thanks Dave for that link, I will definitely keep that in mind in the future.
