I knew this would happen sooner or later with the new carry method of appendix.
I use it also but I have a quality holster and a pistol that has an external safety.
I prefer both working in concert.
I would not carry a gun w/o external safety unless its ina positive retention holster.

This is not the first time I've heard this story about someone pocket or appendix carry without a holster catching the trigger. How much sense does it take that if you're going to carry without a holster to either have an external safety or don't carry in condition one. Duh!

As with any group of people, you are going to have your responsible people and irresponsible people. Unfortunately, The anti gunners will clump us all together as irresponsible. Stories like this don't help.

So long as it was a bad guy, it worked out perfect. That's how the bad guys get taken care of and how we sort out the bad from the good. Self infliction is always best aka self elimination. I'm good with this. No problem.
