When a guy gets a new gun, the obvious thing to do is show it off to his friends, but you should probably do that literally anywhere but a bar.

The unidentified man was visiting O’Riley’s Uptown Tavern Thursday night around 11pm, when he decided to pull out his new gun to show it to a man and woman at the bar, according to Pensacola News Journal.

As he was showing off the gun, he made a quick motion as if he were putting the gun in an imaginary shoulder holster. It was then that he accidentally fired the gun, striking himself in the torso.

"I don’t know if he was pretending to be a badass or something," O’Riley’s Uptown Tavern bar manager Warren Sonnen told the News Journal. "But from what I can tell it was completely by accident."

Police on their routine patrol nearby were flagged down by a patron of the bar after the shooting, but when officers came into the bar, the guy was gone.

He had checked himself into a nearby hospital, according to the newspaper.

Officials haven't determined if there will be charges pressed or not. I'd say he learned his lesson for being a dumbass.

His current condition isn't currently known.
