Another Firearms Safety Rule That Colonel Cooper Did Not Mention In The 4 Rules

You should strive to always carry your pistol in a holster or other device designed to carry the type of pistol you are carrying. Carrying one in a pocket or in the waistband of your pants is not a smart idea. Shame on me for sometimes carrying one in my pocket, but it is unlikely I would ever shoot myself like the guy in the linked article shot himself if only because rarely is there a round in the chamber when I do it that way. That is the second person I know of who shot himself where this guy got it. Ouch.

A hat tip to Larry H. for the link.

All the best,
Glenn B

Well, he DID say "don't point it at anything you're not willing to destroy," or words to that effect.
