It looks like a Galco Jak-Slide. It's what I carry. Something smells.

The Glock in question has a passive safety.

There is a HUGE difference kids....HUGE!

I agree, I just wanted to clarify that this was at least in part due to negligence on the part of the person for placing his weapon in a position that allowed the trigger to be pulled when he did not intend for it to be.

The title "glock goes off in holster" could have some believing that the weapon fired due to an internal failure of the weapon, this failure was external.

Why would you decock it before holstering?

Decocking a 1911 with a round in the chamber is truly an ND waiting to happen. There is NO way to safely decock a chamber loaded 1911 at all. You may be lucky for years but someday it will happen and hopefully nobody will be hurt...

Nothing about this story smells right. I have several of those holsters that are 20+ years old and have never had any situation remotely close to this.

The whole thing looks staged.

While I agree, I'm a Glock guy, and the position I hold is what I think others on here are trying to say. Give me the same pistol with a better fitting holster and this does not occur in any instance. Six of one, half dozen of the other. Knowing that your gun only has a trigger safety should permit you to get a holster where the trigger is completely hidden by the holster, this gun didn't look like it was even completely slid in to the holster.

But I can see the arguement on both sides. Still going to carry my Glock.

I can see it occurring if he wears the holster frequently without the gun in it. That would cause the leather to tweek around in odd ways that don't conform to the gun.

I don't know. Looking at the pic of the holster pushing on the trigger it does not seem plausible. Not enough stiffness left in that leather to retain it's shape, but enough stiffness to depress the trigger AND the trigger/drop safety a full 3/8" so that it could fire?

Fishy.....
