    Phoenix PD had a couple of leg shots during training over the last year or so... root cause was finger on the trigger during reholstering.

    Funny, never heard of a cocked-and-locked 1911 going off as it was re-holstered!
    Glock or not, it's only as safe as the knucklehead holding it!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!
