    Exclamation GLOCK Accidental Discharge?

    It's very sad, but here in VA a guy had an A.D. in his car in front of his wife and kids. He expired shortly thereafter.

    Details are sketchy, but rumor has it it was appendix carry. Either way it reminded me of another incident shown below. Even if it's been posted here before it bears repeating. Hopefully this info will save a life and/or keep someone from doing the same.

    A while back a plain clothes cop was re-holstering his GLOCK into a Kydex inside the waist band holster and shot himself. He lived to tell about it, but it wasn't very much fun. Take a look at these pictures:

    I don't blame the GLOCK, I blame the jacket draw string button.

    But I mean, WHODATHUNK?

    I have since cut ALL mine off. And a note to those who pocket carry:

    PLEASE make sure your pockets are empty, except for the pistol, or a similar thing might happen to you.

    Please pass this info along, thanks.

    Stay safe,

    I hate when people say it's because it's a glock, any gun will go bang when the boom switch is pulled

    Loaded weapon + finger + trigger = BOOM.

    Where does "cocked and locked" fit into this type of incident?

    I dont even blame the draw string, you should always look the gun in. You should be fast to get it back in the holster. Thanks for the reminder DRM
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    I never look the gun in, I feel to make sure my holster is clear but I keep my eyes down range, forward, etc.

    True it is not the fault of the gun that the trigger got pulled, but it seems to happen to Glocks more than others, of course LE carries a lot of them, and it won’t happen to mine if you pull the trigger only, or an XD.

    If a glock is unsafe, then the dao revolver is evil incarnate. I find it funny people jump to blame glock glock glock when the dao snub was the original no safety carry piece

    Some federal agencies (ICE) are so sick of AD that they are looking at Sigs

    Maybe they should look into more weapon handling training.

    Same here. Holster cleared, slowly reholster all the while scanning for additional threats.

    In regards to the gentlemen that shot himself I read somewhere that the gun was not in a holster. You do stupid things bad things can happen. It's pretty plain and simple.

    That's why I'm sold on the 1911 for everyday carry. Cocked and locked, as pictured, the gun will not fire even if something accidentally grabs the trigger.

    As pictured my glock will not fire either as the trigger is protected so what is your point?
