    Man shoots toilet, injured by shrapnel

    CENTERVILLE — A man was wounded by shrapnel from a toilet when his concealed weapon accidentally went off while he was using the bathroom, police said.

    It happened Tuesday at the Carl's Jr. restaurant at 385 N. 800 West. Police said the 26-year-old man had gone into the bathroom to use the toilet, armed with a .40-caliber "Khar P40" automatic handgun. The man, who has a valid concealed weapon permit and was lawfully in possession of the gun, had it in a holster inside his pants.

    "While pulling his pants up the gun fell out of the holster, striking the tile floor," Centerville Police Lt. Paul Child said Wednesday. "When the gun hit the floor, it went off, and the bullet struck the toilet, shattering it and sending sharp pieces of porcelain flying."

    The man was hit by some porcelain shards, lacerating his arm. No one else was injured, but an employee of the restaurant in the next-door women's restroom heard the gunshot and panicked.

    "She was experiencing chest pain," Child said.

    Police and paramedics responded to the call of shots fired inside the restaurant and ended up treating the man for the cuts to his arm. The woman also was treated at the scene.
    Story continues below

    "In this case it appears that the accident would have been prevented if the man had used a secure holster," Child said. "A good quality firearm also should not fire if it is dropped."

    The man was not cited, but police took the firearm for safekeeping while they finish their investigation.

    Are khar's so shitty they'll go off from being dropped? Probably fucking with it while he was taking a dump.

    Not framiliar with the Kahr like I am with the glock but most modern pistols have some sort of drop safety installed. Some people disable these drop safties/ firing pin blocks, etc to get a better trigger pull. (note glockworx never disables any factory safeties). Would not be surprized if
    • gun was monkeyed with, do it yourself trigger job
    • guy had finger on trigger and made up drop story or he dropped the gun and went to catch it and pulled the trigger.
    I myself pull the gun out of the holster, or pull off the holster any time I sit down. In the car the gun goes under the right thigh. On while using the can I tuck it under my left arm pit.

    At the risk of coming off like a serious gun nut (why lie it's true). When I hit the can I draw the gun and stick it under the left arm pit. Muzzle is pointed back kind of like wearing a shoulder rig. I still have two hands to pull up my pants and zipper up. Gun never gets left behind on the top of the toliet or top of toliet paper dispenser (actually quite common CCW mistake when using public restroom). Lastly if somebody ties to catch with with my pants down they are in for a surprize.

    you pull off your holster any time you sit down, even if it's in public? say you're eating at a mall or something, or any other public place?

    When I go out to eat generally I leave the gun in the car because I usually have a beer too. If I know I'm going to be sitting I wear OWB strong side. I don't like sitting while wearing IWB. Uncomfortable and difficult to get to the gun. I might do it short short durations, but a long car trip, sitting at a coffee shop while trying to run my game on some chick, doing marketing research (reading all the gun ads in magazines at big bookstore, not as fun as it sounds and I have to do it once a month), etc.

    Losing track of what I'm saying.

    If I'm sitting down on a toilet, I grab the gun and holster as one unit and sit down and then it rest inside my pants, making sure it's not hanging out all over the place noticeable by anyone who may happen to see it from under the stall walls.

    If I'm dropping my pants for another purpose :naughty:...no but seriously now, like tonight I tried some pants on in a store. I unholstered the gun, laid it on the bench behind me on top of my jacket and then took my pants off.

    I doubt my gun would go off if it hit the ground, but I'll err on the side of caution.
