Clean through the leg, through the driver side floor of his 2018 Tacoma, lodged in the tire.

Crazy as my office window is right in front of where he parks. If it didn't hit his tire it would have absolutely came through my window.

 

We can joke about it now that we know he's ok just a flesh wound.

I'm betting he's more pissed about his truck than actually shooting himself in the leg.

WTF was he doing? Cleaning the gun while sitting in his truck or something?

Said he was taking it out of his waste band after he got back from lunch to leave in his truck. I still don't know how he fired it while in the holster. 

 

I would say he prob should refrain from having a round chambered from here on out.

Dont touch the trigger unless you want to shoot whatever the gun is pointing at. Someone else could have been on the other end of that bullet. Hopefully he learned a lesson. Don't feel bad for him at all. 

Absolutely. He's very lucky.

What's worse than a negligent discharge is one where the guy lies about it.

He was playing secret agent and playing with his peace and pulled the trigger thinking there wasn't a round in the chamber.

He's our accountant. He's fairly young, 28, but seems very responsible and not the kind of guy who would be doing that but who the fuck knows.

Too bad it wasn't a true desk pop

 A few years ago here a guy dropped his wife off to run in a store and drop of a movie in the Redbox thing, while she was in there he did the same thing as OP's guy except shot his femoral artery and bled out right there.  Wife came out to the car with him bleeding out with two kids in the backseat.

Soul Gravy - Your office window is at tire level?

That was my first question. Did you judge the ballistic bounce off the pavement if his tire weren't in the way?

Was it a Glock? There have been cases of certain Glocks going off on their own while in certain holsters.

Happened to a relative of mine who is not someone who would have a negligent discharge.

This is incorrect.

Guns do not go off on their own.

There are three safeties built into the fire control system of a Glock.

Your "relative" is either lying, had a holstering system that wasn't designed for the gun he was using, or he introduced some other user-error to the situation.

A Glock is just a striker fired pistol so saying they're more or less prone to "going off on their own" is asinine...
