Default Ruger .357 fires bullet in bathroom

A 24-year-old Phoenix man dropped his gun and fired a shot in the bathroom of a Mesa Walmart on Sunday.

Andrew Seals entered a bathroom stall, and began to sit down when his Ruger .357-caliber Western-style revolver fell out of its holster and fired a round.

The bullet went through the stall door, hit a wall, ricocheted into a light on the ceiling, then back onto the floor toward a man standing at a urinal. The bullet struck the floor about 5 feet from the other man.

Sounds like someone was playing when he should have been doing business.

Sounds like he had the hammer on a loaded chamber!. 6 is a no no.

Must have been an old model. On the pre 1973 old model blackhawk just like a single action army you have to carry on an empty chamber. Load one, skip one, load four, coco the hammer and decock and you should be resting on the empty chamber. Idiots like the guy in the article give the rest of us a bad name.

I would image discharging a firearm and probably inducing panic?
