Appendix carry in a holster, improperly executed, can result in bad things happening. Appendix carry without a holster? Well, Darwin approves of that method. As one very lucky Marion, Indiana man discovered this past Thursday morning at about 6:30am. Seems Mark Anthony Jones was "adjusting" his Hi-Point pistol while near the Girl Scout cabin. In doing so he negligently discharged his gun. The round entered just above his penis and exited the bottom of his scrotum.
Not sure why Mr. Jones, aged old enough to know better (46), spent Thursday morning just outside the Girl Scout cabin adjusting his gun, but he enjoyed the luck of the Irish. Luck for blasting his twig and berries with his 9mm? Yes, because he could have ruptured his femoral and died right there where it happened. Fortunately, despite mild discomfort, he made it to the hospital. No doubt leaving a blood trail Stevie Wonder could follow.
And, a few minutes later, the Marion Police Department knocked on his ER room door. Mr. Jones (pictured above) does not have an Indiana carry license, or a license from anywhere else except maybe from a box of Cracker Jacks. So the PD have referred his case to the local prosecutor for criminal consideration.
You could call it a bad day for Mr. Mark Anthony Jones. But it could have been much worse.
Let this serve as a lesson to all of us: Don't appendix carry without a holster.
