If I had to guess, I reckon the youth who pulled a gun from his waistband lacked a proper holster. He certainly lacked trigger discipline. Or muzzle control. Given that big old artery in his leg, he’s lucky he didn’t bleed out. (Always have a tourniquet nearby!) Be that as it most probably is, the self-inflicted gunshot wound raises a question: do you appendix carry? If so, would you recommend it? Have you considered AIWB and rejected it? If so, why?
