Holsters Are Important: Man Shoots Himself In Groin While In Walmart Meat Department

BUCKEYE, ARIZONA — A man was in the meat section of an Arizona Walmart when his gun started to slip from it’s position while in his waistband. He wasn’t using a holster.

When he tried adjusting it, that’s when the trigger was unintentionally pulled.

The man was found by police with ‘survivable injuries’. There is the possibility of charges, which would include unlawful discharge of a firearm.

When carrying a firearm, it always needs to be in a secure holster. If you’re carrying a firearm and the trigger isn’t properly protected, you’re doing it wrong. If you’re carrying a firearm without a holster, you’re doing it wrong.

If you shoot yourself in the groin, you’re definitely doing it wrong.

Hopefully, this man can now put some good information to use and get himself a holster to secure his firearm.

It’s a negligent discharge that was 100% avoidable. Be smart out there.
