Default Bicyclist shoots himself

A cyclist died after accidentally shooting himself on Thursday afternoon, police said.

Troy Earl Smith Jr., 25, was found lying on a street in St. Petersburg, Florida, with a gunshot wound to the chest. He later was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

After reviewing video from nearby businesses and talking to witnesses, detectives determined that Smith was riding his bike when the handgun he was carrying in his jacket pocket discharged.

I think your odds are a lot worse being hit by a car.

Gotta carry in a holster. Protect that trigger. Not doing so can kill you.

It is a shame to see posts like this because one of the basic things any weapon own should be aware of is how to safely handle and secure a firearm. If you don't know the basics you shouldn't have a gun until you do.
