I was joking on my previous post but maybe I was right.

It must have been a younger cop, the older ones don't seem to have the problem of prema, er, uh, accidental discharges.

It's FAR more likely that it was the holster, rather than the firearm. Perhaps similar to this ND:

Me to, sounds like an incomplete story which normally means someone isn't telling the truth.

Lung and heart shot by a holstered ITP? Hmmm

I'm going with the "affair" scenario and guessing she was working hard to discharge his "gun" when she inadvertently discharged is "weapon".

A "loosened" belt and numerous positions of the Kama Sutra would go a long ways toward explaining the trajectory issues with this story.

In that case, it sounds like she was performing fellatio on him and one of them somehow inadvertently discharged the weapon, I always take mine off, what a *******.

If it truly was an accident it never would of happened if the weapon had a proper safety mechanism. Those glock type trigger doo dads are only good if the weapon is dropped. They do absolutely nothing to stop the weapon from being discharged if the trigger is accidentally manipulated. In this day of ambulance chasing lawyers I'm surprised glock and other manufacturers haven't had the bezeesus sued out of them.

I wear a double shoulder holster sometimes. I am not going to comment of what could of happened. I do not have all the information so I cannot give a fair assessment of the situation. Its not fair to the person involved because he probably feels horrible about it. Sometimes it just best to sit back leave an opinion out.
