    BAD: CCW holder loses gun. Found by kids.

    We are all fortunate that nothing really bad happened here and that the kids did the right thing.

    This is the kind of thing that will get someone hurt or killed, and ramp up the efforts to take away our rights. People with permits need to stop being stupid.

    This happens more often with LEOs than with CCW holders. Just do a google search & you'll see a few examples........Not excusing carelessness, it just happens OCCASIONALLY...

    I didn't read the article, but seeing that it happened at a movie theater is not surprising. I always feel as if mine will fall out of the holster when I'm sitting on the movie theater chairs, but I always check that I still have it every 20-30 mins and when I leave.

    If the antis do get a AWB passed, CCW will be next on their list.

    I've come to realize there's a big difference between most peoples views on owning AR-15 type weapons and their views on the conceal carry laws. There's a lot more statistics to back up conceal carry and I don't ever see anything happening to it..then again..anti's don't care about statistics....

    Although I love my evil black rifle, I have also found this to be true. I have gotten asked "why would anyone legitimately need a rifle with a 30 round mag" a lot in the last few days, and people are much more open to the idea of carrying a handgun for personal defense out and about, but turn their noses up when I tell them my rifle is for defense of home and country if need were to arise.

    And this is another reason why EDUCATING kids, ALL KIDS, about safe firearm handling is important. But "educators" have the mistaken belief that educating kids about firearms would lead to more, rather than less, incidents. If they'd just take the mystery away, the odds are much greater that kids wouldn't bring guns to school, accidentally (or purposefully) shoot their classmates, etc. But again, the "educators" have the same delusions about Gun Free Zones.

    That's why due diligence controlling our firearms and educating kids is paramount. My kids know what to do if I or anyone else makes a mistake like that, does yours?

    Yep, mine do. They'll tell me if I leave it somewhere (like if I was in the kitchen cooking and laid it down on a counter - holstered of course). Doesn't happen often but it does occasionally happen when I am wearing some very loose shorts so I can't IWB normally. We drill them occasionally and ask them what they would do if a friend brought one out, etc. And they've shot them all so they know what kind of damage they can do.

    I really wasn't pointing a finger at you accessbob. I guess it can be looked at in that way. I was really just sayin' in general.

    Hats off to whoever educated these kids. They did the right thing.

    I didn't think so but thought I'd just throw that out there as we've worked with our kids and I trust them to do the right thing because of it and their history.

    The story I saw was that they had taken a Hunter Safety course.

    Update:

    Ore. man who left gun under theater seat has permit revoked | Local & Regional | Seattle News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KOMO News

    I kinda feel for the guy a little because we all make mistakes, but as mprp said "due dillegence in controlling our firearms" is an area where we can NEVER let our guard down. It would not surprise me at all if charges follow, although I'm torn on whether I would want to see that happen to someone.

    I've never had my gun even try to come out of my OWB formed leather holster,it has no retention strap since the leather is molded to the gun,people that carry in cheap one size fits most slick nylon holsters,or the Belt Slide type holsters that can push up on the gun slide as you sit down causing the gun to push up out of the holster are just a news story waiting to happen.
    Too bad they didn't publish the type of holster he was using but I got a really good Idea it was probably in the $10 range
