This MacBook Was Shot with a Gun… Oops!

mac shot with gun

It’s Sunday funday again… and though this doesn’t really fit into a ‘fun’ category it’s sure interesting anyway… we bring to you a rather unfortunate incident that caused a MacBook Pro to be pierced with a bullet hole, right through the screen! Yikes!

So, we’re all wondering, how exactly does a Mac get shot? Aggression? Just goofing off? Was the owner unusually frustrated by seeing the beachball? Did someone use the MacBook for target practice? What happened here? Well… apparently this was much more of an accident than anything else… here’s the quote from the source:

“Apparently, someone was cleaning his gun, and didn’t realize it was loaded! Whoops”

Well, that’s one heck of an accidental discharge, but I suppose it’s better for a MacBook to bite the bullet (so to speak) than anything else… still, that’s a tough and expensive lesson to learn.

So the lesson here, in case it wasn’t completely obvious: safety first! Bummer about the Mac, but it could have been much worse.

This image was found and was quoted from the SmallDog Flickr stream. That’s pretty good (bad?) aim for an accident… wow, just wow!

Astute readers noticed this actually looks a lot more like a PowerBook 12″ and not a MacBook Pro… good eye!

    What an idiot, anyone this irresponsible with a firearm should have their right to own one removed.

    It’s probably just some idiot who got pissed off with his Mac… Thinking that doing something like this and posting pictures online makes a statement other than that he’s a moron.
