    The story in this link should be sub-titled "Only in America". It must have been a real mess, and probably happened because some CC guy didn't have a good retention rig.

    Still, "that's pretty funny right there, I don't care who you are!"

    Wow, must have been an old gun! I would be afraid to carry a non-drop safe gun! I'm not particularly clumsy, but I wouldn't want to bet my life on it!

    I, on the other-hand, would likely be dead 10 times over if my gun fired every time it got bumped...if nothing else I'd surely be deaf[er].

    Like I said in the other thread on this story. Never draw to a flush.

    Although it's considered bad form to ever unholster, this is the one situation which I typically do, since I normally try to keep my pants off the floor and a heavy gun hanging on my belt would therefore be a problem. Safety on, unholster, hang by trigger guard or place on top of toilet tank, reholster, safety off.

    I wonder if this incident was a case of bad safety/trigger finger discipline while reholstering........

    Edit: BTW Hawk, that was horrible :^).

    Blasted toilet finally laid to rest.

    John the toilet laid to rest at Utah restaurant
    January 31, 2009 - 7:26pm

    CENTERVILLE, Utah (AP) - John, a porcelain commode gunned down in an accidental shooting at a fast food restaurant's bathroom, has died. His age was not immediately known.

    The toilet was shattered by a bullet Jan. 12 when a man's gun fell from its holster as he was pulling up his pants, police said. Police do not plan to file criminal charges in connection with the incident.


    Christian Martinez, manager of the Carl's Jr. where John was gunned down, held a memorial service Friday at the restaurant. He gave away bottles of John's favorite toilet cleaner, Kaboom Bowl Blaster, to the eatery's first 50 patrons.


    A Bountiful flower shop provided a large floral arrangement.


    "In all my years, I can say without a doubt that I have never delivered for a toilet," said deliveryman Doug Graham, "but I thought it was the funniest thing I've ever heard. I got a kick out of it."


    Remnants of John hit and cut the gun owner's arm, but he was not seriously injured.


    Police blamed John's death on the gun and style of holster the man was using.


    "He was survived by the men's urinal and wash sink," said Martinez. "He left us way too soon."

    This is BS - I would bet you a whole bunch of money that the firearm was either being played with actively (most likely) or had been played with (and cocked) just before it.... ummmm .... voiced its displeasure loudly!

    Well guns can be that way. There you are stroking it softly and suddenly... even violently.. It just goes off in your hand, and makes a mess of the place.

    It could be that he was handling the gun when it went off. I would suspect bad finger discipline while reholstering. But, I would think it should be rather obvious from the toilet bowl which direction the bullet was traveling and therefore if it was on the floor when it went off. So who knows, perhaps he carries an older gun that doesn't have the drop safety features that more modern guns do?

    And THAT is the difference between a firearm and a gun.

    they did say the holster and gun were not a good fit, or something like that... My first CCW rig was a generic nylon kangaroo holster that was great when my belt was tight and I wasn't moving much... Most of us here can attest to the benefit of a quality gun belt and a proper holster. There is a world of difference... and getting your pants back up with a gun and extra magazine on the belt can be a real delicate procedure...
