    Not much of a description on how it happened. Hope he didn't end up like the Florida guy. Old half Frank.

    Yeah, winding up with "the beans" ABOVE "the frank" would ruin a dude's day, for SURE! :eek:

    Glad it didn't turn out like that fellow in N Salem a while back. From the brief info I gleaned, sounds as that fellow was adjusting an apendix carry and it got his femoral. Deceased at the scene.

    Great.
    On KOMO and all of Seattle is laughing at Vantucky like another Florida Man story.
    I wish people could just maintain a sense of decorum.

    I guess the Natural Selection Process is always at work.


    :D

    Maybe carrying without a holster, or situating it, dropped and caught it on the trigger? Who knows.
    I bet we never get the full story.
    Around midnight, in that area? Leaving a bar?

    Also wondering what specific type and model of handgun was employed. Some handguns have ambo thumb safeties plus a grip safety. Some have neither.
