    EPIC Rear Pants Pocket Carry Fail !!!!!!!!

    A 52 yr old Washington man decided to see if it might be more comfortable for him to carry his .40 S&W pistol in his rear pants pocket while he was out hiking this past weekend, rather than in his holster.

    However, the pistol accidentially discharged, with the hollowpoint bullet traveling through his right buttock, down his thigh, and coming to rest just above his right knee cap. He managed to survive the gunshot, and is being treated at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee.

    See this news report from the Wenatcheeworld:

    I wonder why on earth this fellow thought that doing this was a good idea?

    Keep your booger hook off the bang switch and crap like that won't happen!!!!!!!!!!! Just speculating though...

    It said he removed it from the holster to see if it was more comfortable in his back pocket. I guess either the seam of his pocket or his finger found it's way into the trigger guard. From the description of the wound track, that's a lot of penetration through the length of the hamstring... OUCH!!

    I guess the answer to his question is: No, it is not more comfortable...

    Ouch! In a big way. He's lucky it didn't blow out his knee all together. I bet he felt pretty stupid.

    He asked himself a stupid question, and gave himself a stupid answer. I guess they need to add to the safety rules, "Keep your butt cheeks off the bang switch" or "Don't scratch your butt if you have a pistol back there." I'm not going to ask how your butt gets in the trigger guard. A visual I don't want. I might have to poke out my mind's eye.

    PS. It reminds me of Forrest Gump, "I was shot in the buttocks, sir." Only difference is Forrest didn't do it to himself. If you're not at least as smart as Gump, perhaps you shouldn't have a firearm.

    Well, the trend these days is to make ammo that penetrates deeper, so I am not too surprised by the amount of penetration. Some of the 180 gr .40 S&W loads are really going deep now.

    It really sucks if you end up shooting yourself, though, like this poor fellow did.

    He was out hiking on a mountain trail when this happened, so he was far from medical help. If the round had caused an exit wound, he might not have survived. This guy is unlucky to have had this happen, but is very lucky indeed that he did not die.

    I reckon he won't try the front pocket any time soon.

    Perhaps he should stay away from a smartcarry too or he could end up singing soprano.
