    Off Duty LEO ND in restaurant, first hand and official report

    This is a link to a site that has the report, written by the officer in question, who had a negligent discharge while paying for his dinner at a restaurant in Parker County Texas.

    This happened back in Feb. of 2010, but I just found it on line and figured everyone here would like to see it.

    Nice of him to come forth and share that experience. One can learn something from that and he correctly identifies it in his list as number 2. Correct holster. Even a pocket holster. Would have prevented this. I continue to insist when this comes up that NO pistol should be carried without something over the tigger keeping it covered. No belt clips, no lose in the pockets and certainly no reliance on "heavy long" trigger up as your protection. It simply is not safe to conceal carry a pistol out of a holster of some sort. Even a pistol placed in a woman's purse should be in a slip holster of some sort. A pocket holster of some sort serves this purpose very well.

    It's a good thing that no one got hurt other then himself. I agree with having a good sturdy holster that completely covers the trigger guard, and not having anything else in the pocket that can obstruct the trigger in anyway. Its good to see that he took responsibility for it and wrote something about his experiences so others can learn from them. It also proves that no matter how much experience with firearms you have something can go wrong at any given moment with just a split second lapse in situational awareness.

    Well written analysis of what he did wrong, I agree with all of his corrective measures except the 'no round in the chamber' part. Propper holster if pocket carrying and dont put anything else in that pocket. I am not a fan of making triggers lighter in general, but that is personal preferance. Carry on.

    I am surprised to hear of people pocket carrying without a holster. It seems they would know better!

    First thing I bought for my LCP knowing I intended to pocket carry it was a pocket holster

    You'd think so, but there are actually several people even here on DC who pocket carry with no holster.

    He made a big mistake us humans do that from time to time ? It was very big of him to come forward and explain what happend in great detail. I'm guessing The reason was to prevent it from happening to someone else and maybe not being so lucky.

    "This is just another example of why all guns should be banned, or at least reserved for use by law enforcement and government officials and maybe military. The last person who should be carrying a gun is a private citizen. What if they were to use it against government or law enforcement? The whole reason that we have a government is to keep us safe from ourselves. It’s pretty obvious that they are the ones who should have all of the guns."


    LOL, the person that was shot him self was a police officer. what a moron.

    Well isn’t that odd, there were no charges for reckless endangerment of the others in the surrounding area.

    It is best to carry your firearm in a good holster that is designed specifically for that gun.
    If you do carry in your pocket, don’t carry anything else in that pocket.
    I think that sums it up.
