A man who was caught with a loaded gun stuffed down his pants has been jailed.
Kevin Harrison, 40, had put the gun to a friend’s head during a heated row at his flat in Birmingham in February.
He then told him: “I’ll shoot you”, West Midlands Police said.
The 54-year-old friend managed to escape and raise the alarm.
When officers arrived they found Harrison with the weapon and 23 bullets wrapped in a carrier bag and shoved down his trousers.
The 40-year-old admitted to possessing a firearm and ammunition.
On Friday, he was sentenced to six years and eight months in jail at Birmingham Crown Court.
Detective Constable Steve Lewis, of West Midlands Police, said: “It was always going to be difficult for him to explain why he had an illegal handgun and 9mm bullets hidden down his trousers – and he went on to admit his guilt in court.”
