He knew his mistake but this dude was shook up, it wasn't a "haha geez I almost shot you" it was a squeezing the trigger moment, I hate to put it this way but he was so afraid of the dark he almost double tapped his wife and it scared the hell out of him, he said eff it.

yes, i think it would have shook him up. glad for him it turned out the way it did. maybe, just maybe some instinct kept him from pulling the trigger? living with the fact of killing your wife accidently, just because of failing to identify a target in the dark, would have been very traumatic for him, and something he would have to live with haunting him for the rest of his life.

maybe some people are just not suited for guns, i guess.

This is a good guy, good people, responsible, it was a tired, simple mistake he thought she was in bed but she was simply getting some water and it changed him forever.
^^THIS^^ and 4 children is why Everyone sleeps upstairs and I do a physical bed check before clearing the house.

I owe this policy to a shoot/no shoot training exercise years ago. The first scenario was very similar to your friends real life ordeal except the shadowy figure crouched behind the lazy boy. Finger still indexed and shouting "showe your hands" the figure finally pops up, hands in the air, and shouts "DAD DON'T SHOOT!"

That 45 minutes in the simulator with NO SHOOT scenarios was the most valuable training I've received yet.

You haven't figured out how to aim it accurately. No offense intended.
Because of this thread, I am going to buy a G-20 Tomorrow 7-17-12.

None Taken...

My statement about missing high with Glocks was "tounge in cheek.

I'm one of those guys who could just never embrace Glocks grip angle. Don't fault those who like em and agree they are good guns, there just not for me.
