There are more classes than you can shake a stick at about how to retain your gun in a struggle, but not one I’ve found that addresses how to go #2 without firing off your piece. Maybe Andrew Seals from Mesa, AZ can start that class now that he knows first hand what a porcelain throne ND looks like.
azcentral.com has the stinky details:
Andrew Seals entered a bathroom stall about 1 p.m., at a Walmart at McKellips and Greenfield roads, and began to sit down when his Ruger .357-caliber Western-style revolver fell out of its holster and fired a round, Mesa police Sgt. Ed Wessing said. The bullet went through the stall door, hit a wall, ricocheted into a light on the ceiling, then back onto the floor toward a man standing at a urinal, Wessing said. The bullet struck the floor about 5 feet from the other man, he said.
Call me crazy, but I don’t think that gun hopped out of the holster and started shooting willy nilly. And if it did, it was because Mr. Seals was carrying his revolver with the hammer cocked.
More likely, Andrew was toying with his gun and didn’t keep his booger picker off the bang switch. So please put your hands together and congratulate Andrew Seals on his shiny new IGOotD trophy along with his possible felony conviction.
