Here's hoping he heals up quickly and without any permanent damage.

I agree it could have been much worse. I hope he recovers well. How old is he?

Hope he recovers full use of that hand. Is this his first gun?

sorry to hear he was injured...hope a full recovery is in order...

i get on friends even who fail to follow the golden rule..."treat every gun as if...."

i knew a kid who popped himself in the hand with a 22....a year later he wasn't quite able to get full moment in his hand....hollywood doesn't teach people a gunshot wound can leave a life long reminder!

respect those guns! especially the business end!

Sorry to hear that.

Getting people to use the "slingshot" to load and unload is hard for them to understand.
(Yes, I slingshot the slide to load and unload. Only when I am sure that there are no rounds in the firearm do I put my hand over the ejection port to lock the slide back.)

Isn't this the second Glock this year that something was posted about shooting the left hand?

That's why I don't like single action hand guns.

Sorry to hear about your grandson but I wish you wouldn't come on here and blame it on the gun. The Glock is just as safe as any other gun as long as you follow the rules of gun safety. As to your statement that it has no active safeties, that's not true. The Glock has 3 safeties, all of which are activated by pulling the trigger. Keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot and this kind of thing won't happen. You don't say exactly how he managed to shoot himself so are we to assume the same thing wouldn't have happened with a 1911 or Browning Hi-power? Bottom line: one should never "manipulate" any firearm with a round in the chamber unless one is certain the gun is pointed in a safe direction.

" Glocks are unforgiving of human error " according to an AGI video .

That said, it isn't hard to keep from pointing the gun at your hand, a surprisingly common error people make when disassembling the gun . I can think of at least two other such cases and hereby propose that the term " Glock Leg " be joined by " Glock Hand " .
Rule #1 applies here : Dry snap at a suitable barrier during disassembly because ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED Rule #2 also applies .

1. He is 18.
2. This is not his first gun, he has been shooting since he was 6 years old and does some gunsmithing.
3. I did not 'blame' the gun.
Thanks for your thought and prayers.
