Then I guess the response would be "You should make sure it's unloaded before you unload it"

Accidents Happen. The same one shouldn't happen twice.
We all slip up occasionally. Youre lucky, but not alone.

My bad... I should read twice the original post, one before posting myself. After reading dozens of post I lost the point. Sorry.

It was loaded and on the work bench while he was working on another gun.
Big no no.

There is a gunsmith rooted heavely in this story of gun alteration, which ended with an accidental discharge due to gun failure that looks remarkably similar to a negligent discharge.

Would be great to get the gunsmiths side of the story. Somebody sign that guy up to our forum.

I don't know why so many people don't believe the OPs version of events.

Look up Glock goes full auto on youtube and you will see another example of a Glock failing. I am not saying they are bad guns but like all mechanical devices they can fail from time to time. Seems like the aftermarket parts may have contributed to it in this case.

I trust the OP when he says the trigger was not pulled. He has no reason to make stuff up. If he was at fault would he not have simply kept this to himself?

My advice stands. If you feel you have to replace a trigger in a gun perhaps you should buy a different gun in the first place.

I hope the OP recovers quickly and fully. I hope everyone else uses this example as a reminder we need to be vigilant at all times.

I believe OP.

I believe in Glock Leg, and now GLOCK HAND.

Yes it can be prevented, it does not preclude owning a Glock, it does not make a Glock unsafe.

I have also learned that standing in front of a moving car can cause injury or death. I am aware that day old sushi in Alabama can cause injury or Death.
These things I avoid. I do not avoid a Glock, however.

I wonder how often the cowboys talked about revolver leg back in the day before they smartened up and left a cylinder empty.
I wonder if someone in the future will wonder this about some other gun and question how long it took for people today to keep their finger off the damn trigger.

you see that's it. It doesn't take a finger on the trigger. .
But a finger will do it.

Well whether the story is true or not, I think it is possible. If the following video is real, this could have very well been what happened to the OP. at the very end of the video you will see the last two rounds go off simply by racking the slide.
