    Glad he is ok, during a tactical pistol shoot last weekend I realized I had holstered my Sig still cocked! I am always checking the hammer, pulled it out gently and decock it. I always look when I am reholstering. I found on my M&P that I could actually get the trigger to fire if I slid the gun at a 45 degree angle over the lip of my low wall Serpa, any angle less than that it would not catch. Frankly I don't have a lot of faith in Glock or M&P trigger safeties, anything that catches the trigger is likely to trip them as well. For the XD I guess he must have had the grip safety depressed as well. We I hope he get over this with nothing longterm more than a bruised ego.

    funny^^, i was just going to say I really like having a sig cause every time before i reholster i think to myself, and have trained myself to de-cock. I suppose, because the gun is set up like that, it makes you think. but it's all practice, practice. Rule of thumb I follow is, Never have your finger on the trigger unless you're absolutely sure you want to kill what's behind your targets.
    boom.

    Yes. While infrequent, and while training to avoid the consequences helps, if the shirt gets hung up on the finger it creates and pocket that can, when released, hang up on the trigger as the gun is being re-holstered. Perhaps three times in the past year, I've hooked the index finger on the hem of the shirt and had to restart in order avoid what could have let to a discharge.
