    Finger mangled by bullet

    Wednesday, June 14, 2006
    By JOHN BRANTON, Columbian staff writer Advertisement

    BATTLE GROUND -- Gary Oliver held his .22-caliber handgun with both hands, steadied it against a tree and took careful aim at an empty can through the scope sight.
    Then he carefully squeezed the trigger and blew off part of his left index finger.
    "I lost half of it, the tip," said Oliver, 63, who lives on Northeast 85th Avenue near Battle Ground. "It's a done deal. It happens and life goes on."
    Oliver said he's starting to think he's accident prone. He lost his right index finger in 2003 while playing with a mole trap armed with a shotgun shell.
    The most recent shooting surfaced Saturday evening, when Clark County Sheriff's Deputy James Payne was sent to Southwest Washington Medical Center to investigate an accidental shooting.
    A doctor showed the deputy Oliver's X-ray, which showed a joint broken by the bullet. Oliver's hand also had powder burns, indicating he'd been shot at very close range, according to a sheriff's office report.
    The report said Oliver and his wife, Sandra, were at a neighbor's barbecue earlier Saturday when Oliver decided to shoot at some cans as target practice.
    The report said Gary Oliver had been drinking, but he said Tuesday he hadn't had much.
    After missing the can with his first shot, Oliver steadied the gun against a tree. Aiming through the pistol's scope, the report said, Oliver couldn't see that his finger was covering the gun's muzzle.
    The neighbor, Randall Young, told the deputy he heard Oliver's second shot and then heard Oliver yelling in pain.
    In the hospital room, the report said, Sandra Oliver was sitting next to her husband as a physician examined his mutilated finger.
    Deputy Payne said in his report that he asked Sandra Oliver to step outside and explain what had happened.
    "She stood up and promptly passed out, fell to the floor and smacked her head against the concrete floor," the deputy said in his report. "I yelled for the hospital staff."
    A few minutes later, after Sandra Oliver had recovered from her fall, she gave a statement to the deputy.
    When the deputy noticed that Gary Oliver also was missing his right index finger, Oliver told the officer about the 2003 incident with the mole trap.
    "It's carelessness is the bottom line," Oliver said. "Lack of attention. Guns are tools and all tools require your concentration." In talking to his doctor last weekend, Oliver said he learned of some other recent accidents. "One man lost four fingers to a band saw, and another lost his thumb to a router."

    Sounds like a 2-block-away-from-me neighbor I know who was drunk and trying to open a can of chew with his pocket knife and ended up slicing his thumb in half to the bone. Got around 12 stitches to close up that wound. Man, was he drunk! And he was in my shop when it happened. :doah: :haha:

    Thanks. I needed a good laugh.

    One question - Who puts a scope on a .22 pistol with a short enough barrel to get your finger in front of?
