Ouch.

Most likely to be charged with unlawful possession.

Yes, he might have a possession issue henceforth indeed.

From the article: "She said the man told her he sat on the gun, which went off accidentally."

How is that possible without shooting himself in the butt first? That's an awfully weird angle the barrel was pointed! :lol:

IDK, this might be a case of 1911 junk. :evil2: :biggrinjester:

What if he really did sit on it and happened to disengage the safety and somehow activate/release the hammer? Possible? Of course, who sits ON any gun, let alone while driving.

I bet all you appendix carry folks saw the thread title and were a little cautious about opening and reading this thread's link. ;-)

Regarding the possible charges ... I think if I were the DA I might be tempted to just leave things be. No need to add insult to injury. :eek6

Mexican carry is not such a great idea when carrying a striker fired gun without a safety.
I bet his finger never touched the trigger.

Lucky he didn't shoot himself in the head. He obviously had his head up his rear end.

Maybe he should have invested in a good holster

I've actually seen that several times when I worked in the ER. It seems that SoCal gangbangers are unable to resist the charms of stuffing a .22 or .25 down the front of their pants, sans holster..........although one enterprising young man, with a vision and the ambition to carry it out, chose a .32 instead.......

Was called Mexican Carry in less politically enlightened times.
