I would have to say the chances of this happening with the Glock were rare. With a grip safety, or a frame mounted manual safety as JMB intended, the chances of it happening would Lotto-esque just because you need dynamic pressure in more than one direction.
You would have to have the leather in the trigger guard, so that would be a force going on the "X" axis in, and then catch it on the center console or arm rest of the rig while adjusting your seat and have it hit the grip safety in such a way in the "Y" axis, down, to induce both the grip safety to presure release and the holster to cause the trigger to be engaged and fire the weapon.
I am sure it can be done, and probably has been done, we just haven't seen it yet.
This was a rare case, no question, but once again, with a frame mounted manual safety and a positive on/off....
