Ready. Aim. Wait, don’t fire if you have a semiautomatic handgun in your waistband pointed at your…
That’s what happened to one man who was rushed to a hospital in Arizona after shooting himself in the privates inside a Walmart.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
The local police department tweeted that officers were working what appeared to be a “self-inflicted accidental shooting” inside the Watson and Yuma Walmart.
Buckeye PD later confirmed in an update: “Adult male accidentally shot himself in the groin area inside the Walmart Watson & Yuma. Being transported to hospital. No other injuries.”

The Arizona Republic reported the incident occurred at around 6:30 p.m. after a semiautomatic handgun that was being held in the man’s waistband began to slip.
The gun, which was not in a holster, discharged as he attempted to reposition it, the man told cops.
When police officers responded to the gun shot the man was found in the meat section of the Walmart store with “survivable injuries.”
Officers said they filed a report for the unlawful discharge of a firearm but it was “believed” to be accidental.
It was not immediately clear if the man would be charged by the local police department.
The man’s identity and condition at the hospital was not made public by law enforcement.
No word if the man is fully recovered.
