A few Guys in Alabama play Quick Draw with real guns, one guy gets shot with a Glock and dies

A few guys were playing Quick Draw on Thursday with real guns at Extreme Concepts, an automobile business in Boaz, Alabama. One guy was shot in the torso with a 40 caliber Glock and was later pronounced dead after being taken to Marshall Medical Center South.










WAFF reports:

A man was shot during a game of quick draw at Extreme Concepts on Highway 431 in Boaz Thursday night, according to police.

Boaz Police arrived on the scene and found 30-year-old Patrick Daniel Garrett with a gunshot wound to his torso. He was taken to Marshall Medical Center South where he was pronounced dead.

Two or three other people were at the business when officers arrived. Witnesses said they were playing quick draw with their guns, but they thought all of the guns were unloaded.

Police took the 40 caliber Glock into evidence. They will present the case to the grand jury.

The victim’s body was taken to Huntsville for an autopsy.

No one has been charged at this time.

What a bunch of men doing playing Quick Draw with actual guns? A better question:  Why are grown men playing ‘Quick Draw’ at all? What a senseless death.

    Gun fanatics are not men. They are 12 year old boys too stupid to know the difference between the Lone Ranger toy gun they had as a kid and a loaded Glock. Hey, if they kill each other off, problem solved. I do feel sorry for the dead guy’s family. But then, they raised him.

    Yup, responsible gun owners, that’s all they were. Everyone knows ya can’t get killed with a loaded gun.

    These guys are surely among the folks who argue that they need to have an arsenal to “protect” us from our duly elected government, any time they happen to want to… NOT what I’d call a well-organized militia…

    No charges? Lets get a felony on the shooter and take his guns. Grab! Grab! Grab! One gun nut at a time.

    And I’ll bet, if asked, they were all very knowledgeable about gun safety.

    Imagine your last thought in life being, “I’m about to die because I’m a fucking idiot.”

    These were obviously “responsible gun owners” doing their “civic duty” by practicing in case they see someone they are afraid of (i.e. not white), so they can “blow them away.” Nothing to see here. Move along, move along.

    “Two or three other people were at the business when officers arrived. Witnesses said they were playing quick draw with their guns, but they thought all of the guns were unloaded.” 1min previous, “Bobby Ray should we check these guns to see if there loaded?” Bubba, “Naw, take too much time. Besides, its our constipational right to play how we wanna play”.

    The police didnt arive and find anything, he was rushed to the hospital as soon as he was shot, before the police was even notified. Get your stories straight before you idiots post a story online.
