A child and three adults are recovering after a shooting at a popular Orlando barbeque restaurant.

The shooting is being identified as an accidental discharge of a gun carried by a man with a concealed weapons permit. He tells police he had his 9mm in his pant pocket and also had his hand in his pocket when he says the gun accidentally fired.

Ed’s note: The gun in question was an XD-9, as reported elsewhere.  Make sure you use a quality holster!

AND KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNLESS YOU HAVE MADE THE DECISION TO FIRE!!!!

Never play pocket pool with a handgun.   On a serious note, never carry loose cartridges in your pants pockets and batteries together.  I know of an incident where a man had a 9 volt battery,  (transistor radio type with snap on top terminals) in his pocket along with loose .22 cal rimfire cartridges.  One round detonated causing severe  damage to the individuals leg.  The round came in contact with the battery terminals in such a way that the battery was  short circuited by the metallic cartridge, and the heat created by the short circuit current was high enough to ignite the primer.

Oh come on!! Let me guess, this person didnt have a pocket holster. Please people keep your firearm holstered untill needed, reguardless of how you carry. Negligent discharges only add fuel to the federal gun grabbers agenda.

How in the world did he do that? The XD9 even has a grip safety along with the trigger.I have to wonder, was one of the adults his wife and the rest of the people hit a accident?
