    9MM vasectomy?

    The man was conscious, alert, talking with deputies and in good spirits before he was taken by Seguin EMS to San Antonio Military Medical Center, the sergeant said.
    If something like that happened to me I certainly would not be in good spirits.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    I was hoping to open the link and find it was an old story previously discussed here. Sadly it was another numb nuts (sorry, couldn't help myself) with a negligent discharge that I'm sure he (and the clerk who helped him) will never forget. Let this be a lesson to all new (and old) carriers. Even experienced carriers have been known to shoot themselves, some in worse places than others.

    A salute to the man who cared enough to come to the aid of the shooter, (who was also the shootee). Direct pressure on a wound can be a life saver. If the bullet had pierced the femoral artery, which is in the same general area, the outcome might not have been so good.

    Must have been. It is hard to due in your testicles holstered at 3 to 5 o'clock or at the back. A couple years ago I read about a woman who was holstering into a bra holster and she herself in the head. Accidents happen. That is why engaging in accident prevention practices makes sense. It is why I do not carry appendix, and why I take care in selecting holsters that help reduce the chance of accidents.

    Reminds me of the old saying “you’ll shoot your balls off” when people talk about reasons they don’t appendix carry.

    The article said the gun was a "9 mm Smith & Wesson," so I think it is reasonable to assume it was a Shield or M&P. I know people can carry strikers safely and a lot of people do. But it needs to be said that a striker with no additional safety requires perfect gun handling to be safe. If you are re-holstering IWB, it would not take much for the trigger to catch on a bit of your shirt, the edge of the holster, etc. With a five pound trigger, it doesn't take much to actuate it. It can happen and it has happened. NDs with strikers have happened to cops. And it is pretty darn ironic to shoot yourself in the process of preparing to carry a gun to protect yourself from getting shot.

    I think it's important to consider safety as much as capability when choosing a carry gun and a holster, and in deciding how much time and training you devote to safe gun handling vs. effective gun handling. It is also important to consider complacency. With a lot of complex systems, the danger zones are the first year, because you don't have your act together yet and then every year after the fifth year, because you think you have your act together and don't need to think about it. Then you get to be my age and you have to worry about outright brain farts.

    Carry what you want, but I recommend being brutally honest about the strengths and weaknesses of each platform and accessory and acting accordingly. I'm very good with a 1911, but I carry a revolver because I know it will go off when I want to and it won't go off when I don't. YMMV.

    Regarding safety, looks like he dropped the ball with his re-holstering technique.

    I would have opened the QuickClot and pressure dressing and handed them to him. I would even explain how to apply them.
