    This GSW if from a person that I know that attempted to catch a 1911 that was falling to the ground from his holster. The gun went off and the 45ACP ball went into his stomach and logged in his butt. :( Thank god the round did not do any major damage to his insides. :eek: His pride was hurt badly and he will be off work for some time recouping. Moral of the story if it is falling let it hit the ground. Most new guns are made to not go off if they hit the ground. Be safe on the range all.:cool:

    His Explanation?

    So when you asked him what happened did he say "the damn thing just went off" :confused:

    I swear I just read a story about that. Doing holster work during quals for an auxilliary police force position, late 20's?

    Ya something like that, I don't know now days you can never tell where the news will spread to. The good old days you could shoot yourself and only the next few county would know. Then you get stuff like this page and every one knows. It's all good he told me I could post it if I believed it would help others. So don't shoot your self's in the gut, OK.:D

    It's a cautionary tale that bears repeating. Hope he's doing okay.

    That is what happens when you deal with a 1911. That is why I own a glock.

    James, Please re-read your post.. That is just down right dumb.. Your not unintelligent, come on, this could happen to a Glock as easily as to a 1911. Actually, with the manual safety and the grip safety on the 1911 and the trigger safety on the Glock I think it would be easier for this to happen with a Glock. So get off the Glock fan boy band wagon and realize this accident could happen with any weapon.

    It can actually happen more easily with a Glock than a 1911. Glock fanboys will take every opportunity to praise the creation of Herr Glock and snipe at the creation of one of the greatest weapons designers of ALL time.

    And NO, I do not own a 1911 or a Glock so I have no dog in this hunt.
