Accidental Discharge indeed!

Epic Carry Fail:

A man accidentally shot himself in the testicles at Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Lynnwood Sunday afternoon, police said.

The man’s handgun, which was in the waistband of his pants, went off at about 12:30 p.m. — an apparent “accidental discharge,” according to Shannon Sessions, a Lynnwood police spokeswoman.

“It made a loud noise and scared a lot of people in the store,” Sessions said. “I believe he shot himself in the testicles and he also had some injuries to his leg and foot. He was obviously in shock.”

Nobody else was hurt and no one appeared to be with the man, she said.

Police and fire responded, and the man was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle before police had a chance to interview him extensively. Sessions had no further details about the man.

Lynnwood police are continuing to investigate but “at this point it does look like it’s accidental,” Sessions said. A manager at Lowe’s said store personnel are not commenting on the incident.

Use a damned holster, people.

    That’s about where you’d have to carry it to shoot yourself in the junk! heheheh

    I love when I read things through a gunnie filter.

    People need to not skimp on holsters! But if they can’t buy a $40 leather or plastic holster designed for their gun, at LEAST get a fucking $10 “Sausage Sack” nylon holster. There is NO excuse for carrying a gun in your waistband unless your a Gang Member, in which case I encourage these dorks to drop their guns and shoot themselves as much as possible!

    This could be a minor Darwin award – he possibly removed himself from the gene pool without snuffing himself.

    Carry Fail – Darwin WIN!
