You have to be careful when you take your pants off, especially if it contains a loaded gun. Otherwise you’ll wind up like William Rood who shot himself in the chin.

Deputy David Caldwell, of the Carter County, Tennessee Sheriff’s Department, was called to Rood’s home late Sunday, where he found a bloody scene, according to the Johnson City Press.

Rood told Caldwell his loaded .25 caliber Beretta pistol had been in the front right pocket of his pants. The pistol discharged as Caldwell placed his pants on his dresser.
