A man accidentally shot himself Tuesday in the food court area of a west Houston mall, police said. Several food court patrons heard the gunshot about 4:15 p.m. at Memorial City Mall in the 900 block of Gessner. The small pistol apparently fell out of the man's pocket and discharged when it hit the ground. One round hit him in the buttocks, police said. They said the man was treated at a hospital for "non-life-threatening injuries." He may be charged with carrying a concealed weapon. OK, who here was it?

This would never happen in Colorado. Unlike Texas, our illegal immigrants are high-class. [;D]

Someone from the Kel-Tec Posse... I say that in jest becuase I hope nobody from this board has such bad taste, that they both eat at the mall food court and carry a POS pocket pistol that isnt even drop safe. I just cant see anyone from AR15.com tossing a jennings in their pocket and racing down to the mall for a corn dog, but i could be wrong...

How do we know that this wasn't a covert takedown by the Memorial City Mall resident mallninja? The perp was reaching for his weapon to mug other foodcourt patrons & the MalNinja shot it out of his hand, the round then going on to hit the perp in the ass. [:O)]

Given that fact that the population of Houston has, for years, ranked among the most obese in the nation, the odds are his ass presented too big a target for even a dropped gun AD to miss!

Half the members on this board would be brain dead after an AD to the buttocks area.

If only we had Kalifornia style pistol testing, this tradegy could have been averted. Do it, for the asses (instead of "children", you got that right?) KODoc check the facts on that "obese" ranking. All those headlines about Houston being the "fatest" city were based on the number of restaurants per capita. It had NOTHING to do with the actual physique of Houston residents. Yeah, I'm a little defensive. [:D]

It's been a while since I saw the list, but Louisiana is usually one of, if not the worst in obese percentages. At 26 I'd say almost half of my friends fall in the chunky, if not obese category. Im a fatty, so I can say that. You skinny guys can mind your own.

An acquaintance of mine had this happen with an Astra Constable. Very well known gunsmith.

I'll bet he at least he proved everyone wrong who had told him he couldn't find his arse with both hands, when that bullet found it's mark.

WHERE WAS THE MALL NINJA???? Someone brings a concealed handgun into the mall food court and the Mall Ninja was caught unawares? I'm so very disappointed. [V]

He wasn't a shopper, he was some little teen thug wannabe. Also, one of the idiot witnesses actually stated on TV that at first he thought it might be "a terrorist attack." He wasn't kidding. Is this how programmed & pussified "Homeland Defense" has made the populace?

Right! They got the "info" by looking at the ratio of restaurants to population. As you know, Houston is one of the top restaurant cities in the country, if not the world, in terms of numbers & quality. Also, they factored in the heat/humidity & "figured" that it caused people to not excercise. Obviously they never drove by Memorial Park on a summer afternoon... Anyway, they also did this to San Antonio too. It's pure BS. If anything, I would think that the colder, northern cities would be fatter...

[url]http://abcnews.go.com/sections/wnt/WorldNewsTonight/fatcity020104.html#CDC[/url] Charleston.Net: Health/Science: Studies differ on fattest cities 04/14/03 The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta recently released a list of the five fattest major cities in America.They were, in order of descending heft, San Antonio, Texas; Gary, Ind.; Jackson, Miss.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; and Shreveport-Bossier, La.A lot of people reading that announcement were confused. Hadn't they just heard that another Texas city, Houston, was fattest followed by Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia and St. Louis -- a totally different collection of scale busters?That earlier list came from a recent issue of Men's Fitness, the magazine's fifth annual roundup of what they call the nation's "Fattest and Fittest Cities." The reason the CDC and Men's Fitness lists don't jibe has to do with how they are compiled. Nonetheless, both convey a similar, unhappy message -- America is woefully overweight and, despite a supposed national fitness craze, is getting ever fatter. Sorry, but Texas is packed with barrel-asses. BTW,I disagree with the common myth that Texans' obesity is due to their being cursed with only two seasons: hot as hell and hot and humid as hell. Texas is blessed with plenty of climactic variation such as floods, hurricaines, and the occasional tornado which comes as no surprise since the topography of texas is like a flabby old tit: Flat as a pancake with a little nipple bump at the Gaudalupe "Mountains". Now afore all y'all gits bent out o' shape at this here dayum Ya-yun-kay, I do make mah annual pilgrimage to Houston fer Rodeo Houston. At least them babes with the flags on horseback ain't fat! Now, where's mah biscuits n' gravy at?[;)]
