I have ordered alot of stuff from the Glock Store and always had great results. When I did have problems they are very good about refunds. Take care and be careful and good shooting!

Interesting, I’ve used mine for about 4 years and never had a problem like that. Who is the manufacture of yours? My belly band was perfect when I was flying a lot as I could adjust it where it was comfortable in those narrow airline seats and would not print as I placed it up under my left arm. It worked great for me.

I have a belly band, and a bit too much belly to put in it. But I've never felt like there was any possible chance of a discharge. In fact with the firearm pointed down, an upward action on the trigger would be required to fire the gun. The only way I can see this happening is if a finger was pushed through the fabric into the trigger guard and pulled up on the trigger. Sounds to me like the incident you describe goes under the 99% of un-intentional discharges, as negligent.

As your spiritual advisor, I strongly recomend massive quantities of ale.
