Yes, it was a gun in his pants pocket. (But that doesn’t mean he isn’t happy to see you).  Christopher Strube was just minding his own business while shopping at an Iowa Walmart, as the Daily Iowegian reports.

Strube said he was carrying a .45-caliber gun in his pants pocket. He stated that a bottle that he was carrying hit the handgun and caused it to fire one round.

The press release continues to say that Strube advised that after the gun went off he paid for his items and left the store.

Police say they found a bullet hole in a basket and several cans of beans after several employees and customers stated they heard a gunshot and smelled gun powder in the area inside of the store shortly after 2 p.m. on Sunday. Officers also located a .45-caliber bullet in one of the cans of beans.

The beans are believed to be in satisfactory condition and are resting comfortably.
