From the “you can’t make this sh*t up” department: Man Accidentally Shoots himself in Groin at Meat Counter in Walmart.
A man was taken to a hospital in Arizona after shooting himself in the groin area inside a Walmart in Buckeye, Maricopa County.
The local police department tweeted THAT officers were working with what appeared to be a “self-inflicted accidental shooting” inside the Watson and Yuma Walmart.
Buckeye PD later confirmed in an update: “Adult male accidentally shot himself in the groin area inside the Walmart Watson & Yuma. Being transported to hospital. No other injuries.”
The Arizona Republic newspaper reported the incident occurred at around 6:30 p.m. after a semiautomatic handgun that was being held in the man’s waistband began to slip. The gun, which was not in a holster, discharged as he attempted to reposition it, the man told cops.
The Arizona Republic reported when police officers responded to the gun shot the man was found in the meat section of the Walmart store with “survivable injuries.” Officers said they filed a report for the unlawful discharge of a firearm but it was believed to be accidental.

The comments are hilarious, but the dude was way out of line. He just tucked his firearm in his pants and went on his merry way. He didn’t have a holster – and he obviously didn’t have well fitting pants because when he went to readjust them, he shot himself. (I typed sh*t himself the first time and I bet he did that, too!)
Don’t be like Walmart man. Get a good holster.
