I feel for this man but he should have spent the few extra bucks and had a pocket holster for his revolver. The trigger and trigger guard should NEVER be left unprotected/uncovered. This was a stupid mistake and one he has now learned the hard way.

I'm no expert but I do legally conceal carry.

OK, .357 is a revolver. How then hell does that go off accidental like?
