I also would lay a sizable wager that the odds of the later happening to anyone who is "wild westin' it" are also considerably higher than the odds of the former ... i.e. you getting randomly held up at gun point or mugged in a scenario in which the gun would, indeed, save your bacon rather than facilitate your demise.
I don't buy that at all. I've NEVER heard of anyone accidently
shooting themselves or someone else while carrying a concealed firearm. Now I'm sure it's happened, but that is why people are required to take the classes to get their CWP, so they know what the hell they are doing.
