    Always wear gloves when handling ammunition. You should not have called anyone about loss of one round of ammo.

    I probably would have done the same (carrying ammo loose) . It's just ammo after all.

    As everyone else has already said.

    Losing one round of ammo was not your first mistake.

    Calling the store was your first mistake.

    It's just a single round of ammo.
    It's not a vial of plutonium or Rican.

    If there is a next time?
    Fuhgeddaboudit!

    And keep all CCW gun owners off the local news media radar.

    Don't beat yourself up! Its like the tv news stations, some of them will blow it up as "a terrible life destroying thing was found at the local mall we have a full crew on hand to cover this breaking news story" and another will say "free ammo found at the mall" . Not a big deal in my book.

    I'm with the others, just a cartridge, no big deal.

    Noooo thats not what im implying at all. Im just saying it's not without risk... I'm not saying that the risk is great, I'm just saying kids are dumb, We were all one once. So we know that.

    One time as a bank branch manager our security guard came in my office with a bag if pot he found in the parking lot. He asked if he should call the police and I said let's just go in the bathroom jointly (pun intended) and flush it. We can make sure it is gone and leave it at that. I sure as heck didn't want the trouble of calling the law over it, I had too much to do. My guess is who ever found it either stuck it in their pocket or disposed of it themselves

    If you had somehow inadvertently dropped it in a preschool full of hammer wielding babies, I'd be concerned.. ammo is expensive!
