Unlawful discharge of a firearm at WalMart sparks questions about holster options

Once again an armed citizen that should’ve had a class on common sense failed in public.
A man’s gun was fired as a result of not having a proper holster, along with a poor choice for pants. The fact that this happened in public leads to headlines that embarrasses us all. Most of us take concealed carry very seriously. Some simply do not. Stuffing a loaded weapon into the waistband of sweatpants is just not smart. The story as reported so far is that the gun was tucked into a sweatpant waistband and came loose when the man bent over. He reacted and reached to grab the gun and in doing so the gun discharged, shooting him in the groin. He is said to be recovering from the injury.



Take a look at this video to begin to understand the importance of proper holster choice:
Rob Pincus designed this secure option that many men and women use with athletic or causal clothing.

And one last tip from PDN: APPROPRIATE OPEN CARRY

    Very good solution. The belly band holster that I have been using has a built in adjustable snap strap to prevent the firearm from leaving the holster without drawing. I like the features and the interchangeability of yours must better, and the fact it can be used to your other holster without the firearm ever leaving it’s holster.

    Dear PDN,
    Just came across your company and all you have to offer. I signed up for your newsletter and would like to become a member soon. I have been working with children for years in the southeast, so I have to watch my $$$. I have a little background in firearms, etc., and aim to get myself back up to speed. I like helping people and believe in constitutional rights but there is responsibility that comes along with it, such as accidental firings in public or in the case where the little girl was shot in the face by her little brother. I am starting over because so much has changed over the years, but common sense stays the same. Will take courses to move toward range instructor, etc. Thru NRA, USCCA, just not sure the best road yet. I am a member of both organizations mentioned above. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for all you do and look forward to being more involved.
    Take care,
