Straight Shooting

isn’t always safe.

…Robert Salter Jr. originally told investigators that he was driving by OBO Auto Sales, 3222 Fordham Parkway in Pensacola, the night of Jan. 6, when he saw lights inside. When he went into the office to check, a burglar shot him in the leg, he claimed.
It turns out that Salter’s injury occurred after he and Paul Dean burglarized the business, and Dean attempted to open the safe in a wooded area by shooting it with a .45-caliber pistol, law enforcement officers said. The shot ricocheted off the safe and struck Salter in the thigh.

Lucky thing he wasn’t a six-shooter. He’d be dead.
The safe escaped with minor injuries.
And will be interviewed on Friday’s ‘Oprah’.

    If the safe hadn’t tried to escape it wouldn’t have gotten shot.

    A pity the ricochet didn’t nail him in the skull.

    Too many cowboy movies.
    Good thing he’s not a “Butch & Sundance” fan, I guess.
