Three old "retired" cops getting together for reminiscing and food (with a brother of one as tag-a-long), met at Perkins Pancake House near I-71 and Rt. 250 at Ashland, Ohio this morning. Bob, the oldest of the bunch, walked in a few minutes later than the rest, and walked up patting himself with a frown on his face. He said, "I think I forgot something", and he was going to go back out and "check his car again". I looked at him and said, quietly, "What'd you do, lose your gun?", jokingly. He said, "Yeah" and was dead serious. I quickly walked out with him, and while heading for his car, we looked down, and about a foot and a half off the curb, right beyond the rear door of the building lobby entrance lays his S&W 638, with CT laser grips and pocket holster. Several people had come in the restaurant in between the time, but apparently, no one had seen it laying there (in broad daylight). Bob had thought he had placed it in an inside pocket of his jacket, but the "pocket" was just a recess BEHIND the pocket, and not stitched at the bottom. The whole pistol and holster had just fallen right between the fabric sections. No one even saw us retrieve the gun. Just thought I'd share this, just in case any of the rest of you have fallen victim to a runaway gun. You are welcome to tell your story and not feel alone.
