    Only when mishandled. Not a gun for those with lack of mental focus.

    Actually the San Diego Police Dept are issued Sig 229 9mm. But they can buy and use their own if on a list. I saw another news report on this earlier today stating that he saw several people trying to break into cars and gave chase. That's when his gun "popped" out and discharged. Still trying to find more info.

    4. A combination of a defective holster/mis-used holster and a defective weapon (it went off when dropped after all).

    I'd like the know what any safety review finds out.

    I figure he might have grabbed for the pistol once he realized it was coming out of the holster. Possibly he had already unsnapped the thumb break? Just muscle tissue damage? Tell me that don't hurt.

    That's what I was thinking!

    I'm with you !
    Tripping on something while moving has cause more than one ND (in the Army)

    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"
