    Arrow ~Nevada Man Shoots Himself in the Butt & Movie Theatre~

    A man accidentally shot himself in the buttocks last night at a Nevada cinema during a screening of 'The Bourne Legacy'.
    The 56-year-old man's injuries are not life-threatening and no other people were hurt in the incident, which took place at a theatre in the city of Sparks. Police said the man had a permit to carry a concealed firearm.
    The man told officers the gun fell from his pocket at about 8.40pm as he was adjusting himself in the seat and that it discharged when it dropped to the floor. Bizarrely for the other cinemagoers at Century 14, he then apologised and left the building before police arrived.

    This story just further proves the importance of having a good quality holster to secure you sidearm while carrying.

    Good lord, can only imagine what was going through the minds of the other patrons. Luckily no one was critically injured,and hopefully he will learn from this.

    I call shenanigans! Most modern pistols will NOT fire when dropped. I'm guessing he couldn't use the "I was cleaning my gun excuse".

    I'm not so sure. My wife's little .380 has no safety at all. I think there are quite a few like that.
    She carries iwb though, in a holster.

    LOL looks like I inherited a 380. She wants one with a safety now.
    I guess I can't blame her.

    The manual safety is not at issue here. What I am referring to is a firing pin block. This prevents the firing pin from moving unless the trigger is pulled. In addition, it also prevents the gun from firing when dropped.

    I kind of love this, because every time I watch a movie where some guy stuffs a gun down the back of his pants, I shout "You're gonna shoot your butt off!" and now I finally have some proof.

    Though it sucks he took a bullet in the tush. That's gotta hurt.
    Ton up!
