Default 2 injured when gun goes off in car

ksl.com - 2 injured when gun goes off in car

Quote:
The driver then asked him a question about the safety issues of the glock; one of which is if you move the slide of the gun backwards it disengages the trigger and the gun doesn't fire. The passenger, unfortunately, wanted to show this safety issue and didn't disengage the slide far enough."

Good one dunerunner.

What the gun owner was trying to show is true for most guns, such as the 1911 and Glocks. When the locking lugs on the barrel and slide disengage the pistol will not fire even if the trigger is pulled. Some people pratice dry-fire and aiming technique with a Glock by folding a piece of paper and putting it between the battery and the top of the slide so it disengages the trigger and moves back and forth because of the trigger-return spring, but without resistance from the sear. Of course when you do this, you always make sure the firearm is unloaded twice over.
Yet another negligent discarge, not an accidental discharge.

what kind of person would try to show some one how a gun works going down the highway? In my opinion someone who should not be handling a gun....
