    Question Must be a big hand.

    From yesterday's Miami Herald (Link will probably expire in a week or so)

    MIAMI LAKES
    Guard with expired license shot gun

    A security guard working at a slaughterhouse was charged in what police call an accidental shooting. The man's security guard license had expired, according to state records.

    Security guard Manuel Cordova went to investigate a commotion outside the Miami Lakes-area slaughterhouse where he was working two days before Christmas Eve.
    He carried in his left hand, police say, a walkie-talkie, a water bottle and a 9mm Glock pistol.

    The gun discharged by accident, critically injuring the owner of a rival slaughterhouse who had been passing out fliers promoting her company, said Miami-Dade police who this week charged Cordova, 46, with shooting into an occupied vehicle.

    The article goes on, but I am wondering about the size of that hand to be carrrying all that stuff.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    I am imagining gripping the top of the water bottle, the antenna of the radio . Still don't see why you would have all that crap in your gun hand anyway. sounds suspicious to me.

    Might explain the "accidental" shot, though he must have been running or something, Glock triggers, don't just "go" they're long.

    Are we sure this was an accident?!! Might be handy to pass it off as such but - hmmmm -
