Well lesson learned and heck you could have throwed it at the BG if all else failed. Just joking. Even though I have carried for years I still remember way back when taking baby steps and carrying the weapon all safe not chambered thinking I was all that and a loaf of bread too. Till one day the light bulb went off and I understood I would be toast not bread and I have never carried that way again. At least it was a mistake that turned out ok. Keep on packin.
