While I agree that this was not the weapon's fault, but the holster not being properly inspected prior to using it. It would have been very hard for this to happen with an XD and even harder with a 1911.

I agree. and I have an XDM and no glock. But the glock is not at fault here and should not even be in the picture.

That's what I was thinking.


Manual safeties are great and all, but the primary safety is between your ears.

I also do wonder how many ADs have happened with Cocked-And-Locked gun. Once that big lever is clicked down, the crisp, light SA trigger would be much easier to activate. In any case, though, this wouldn't have happened with a good-condition holster.

With my PT92, I once discovered the safety had become disengaged at some point during the day. Since then, I always carried hammer down, and owned nothing but DA handguns since then.

Glocks once again prove the fact that they have the ghey.

Only glocks have the lone safety on the trigger itself which is just stupid.

I am just failing to track here. The best benefits for the Glock is that it's design will allow it to go bang every time, in the most basic of training.

It will work if you swim with it.

It will work if you drop in in the mud.

If will work if you never clean it.

But the lone fact is that a safety on the trigger itself in regards to an active safety is the reason this happened.

At a grip safety - probably no problem.

Add a manual slide mounted safety - absolutely no problem.

Add a genetic, ID by way of grip, safety - absolutely no problem.

This "may" (out of respect for a great man who knows a lot about weapons in Sniper03) have been a case of the owner fingering the pistol or it may have been the result of a holster that was not new and "crisp".

My position? Give me the same pistol and add an active pistol safety, this DOES NOT occur in any instance.

Damn right the firearm functioned correctly...it did not fire til the trigger was actuated!

Inspect ALL of your carry gear and make sure it is in working order as often as possible. If it's not 100% right and a gun owner ignores the problem they are asking for trouble one way or another. Basic stuff when carrying a firearm.

You know Iím just wondering how the Glock fired? I mean was he sitting in the car and attempted to holster his weapon? Was the weapon holstered and as he got out he pushed down on the gun causing the unintentional discharge or did something (seatbelt, door arm rest) push down on the gun causing the discharge? These are the only scenarios I can think of that might have caused this. Anyone else wonder about how it happened? The reason Iím wondering is if it happened with a Glock then I think it could also happen with a revolver. I have carried a Glock in a belt slide holster like that one, not Galco but stillÖ.

Whenever I shoot myself I always pose for pics before heading off to the walk-in clinic.
