Interesting: LTC Holder Has Not Intentional Discharge

Idaho’s Magic Valley dot Com reports a properly licensed Idaho State chemistry instructor had a concealed handgun discharge in his pocket.

Briefly quoting the report linked above:

An Idaho State University instructor was wounded in the foot after a concealed handgun in the person’s pocket discharged during a chemistry lab session with students in the room, school officials said.

Arriving Pocatello police officers found the instructor on Tuesday in the Physical Science Complex with a non-life threatening injury.

The person was treated and released at Portneuf Medical Center, police Lt. Paul Manning said. No other injuries were reported.

The most likely cause of an NID is failure to use a proper holster that covers the trigger guard. Such a holster can certainly save a lot of pain, suffering, and embarrassment.

If you pocket carry, let me commend Micheal’s holsters from the Holster Site. I have bought and paid for several, and I am very well satisfied. If you want to look, the link’s on the right.
