    LOL NO, I carried a Glock 19 for about 15 years. I like to add that extra layer of safety. Conealed carry holsters are not the same as LE holsters. You don't have a big bucket to dump a gun into, the holster is typically tight to the body and requires paying more attention. The added benefit of having a hammer allows you a tactile feel to see if something is wrong. You may have reholster a glock 200,0000 times, but on the 200,001 time something may happen.

    While we’re “speculating “ on the cause....I have another viable explanation.....

    ...botched suicide attempt.....just as likely at this point....

    The problem is, that striker fired guns and 1911’s are best suited for professionals, or those who receive professional training.

    And, the issues arise when those who don’t, buy one and try to use it without understanding the precautions that must be adhered to at all times.

    A greenhorn attempting to reholster a revolver, has a lot more leeway than one who is reholstering a Glock if something is against the trigger.
    IMO, most people can be trained relatively quickly to be proficiently safe in handling and holstering a DA revolver. on the other extreme, the amount of training required to safely handle and holster a 1911 with the safety disengaged and the grip safety taped down is significantly higher, but it can be done, it's just a matter of extreme discipline and attention being critical. Strikers are somewhere in between.

    I have a striker, but it's a Walther P99. The first shot is DA unless you intentionally cock it to SA. My other guns are HK P30ls and Sig P30, both DA/SA.

    Same can be said of revos, plenty of holes from the 60's and 70's in police stations proving the point.

    In my opinion, a striker fired gun with no manual safety is easier to negligent discharge than a DAO with no manual safety , no matter who you are or who you think you are. Again, this is just my opinion.

    My carry weapon is a "traditional double-action" semi-automatic. That is, it's double-action/single-action (DA/SA). I carry with one in the pipe, hammer down, safety off. In fact, with the hammer down, the safety can only be in the off position. The only time you can engage the safety is when the hammer is fully fully cocked. I would only do so after shots fired when I need to re-holster my weapon before manually lowering the hammer, as it doesn't not have a decocking lever.

    My Level II retention holster helps keep the firearm secure in the holster. The holster guards the trigger area completely. The firing pin block prevents a negligent discharge that could otherwise be caused by a blow to the hammer.

    In public, I will never draw unless I intended to fire to stop a threat. It's a gun, not a stop sign.

    I don't know about the mall DASH (dumb-ass shot himself). Perhaps he failed to read the manual.

    One possibility no one mentioned: mexican carry.

    On the other hand, if they guy was carrying mexican on his shoulders, it would have been mentioned by reporter.

    Agreed. Gun guys always want to blame the person and never the gun but the fact is that there are some platforms that are inherently safer than others. You can argue that the person didn't have the required skills, practice, training or whatever to manage the platform correctly and that may be so but it doesn't change the fact that some designs are simply safer than others.
