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.


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.

Yeah, this is bs.  Obviously you have no idea how a glock trigger, or any gun with a safety on the trigger works.  Please explain how a holster can reach through the trigger guard, depress the trigger safety and pull back a trigger.  Not happening.  Its either human error or wrong holster, not the gun.

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...

Sounds like you get your info from the Glock website.

Any type of mechanical device can, and eventually will, fail. There are way too many reports of Glocks going off without any user intervention for it to be a coincidence.

And why is it you only hear about it with Glocks and not say, a Smith & Wesson .38 revolver?

Gets called out on nonsense story by guy who clearly knows his shit... Doubles down. Bold. Very bold.

There are a lot of people who disagree with you

Maybe but how many of them are trained professionals and how many of them are trigger happy weekend gun range warriors? 

I think the physical designs of most glocks make them susceptible to unintended accidents via miniscule design issues when dealing with third part accessory manufacturers.

Shit happens, welcome to the real world. You want to play with a tool designed to take lives, this shit happens.

If he thinks a Glock in a holster has never gone off without user intervention, he clearly does NOT know his shit. Instead of knowing his shit, he knows jack shit.

Ok, never been on glocks website.  Stop getting all your info off the internet and from ignorant people.  Also,  please answer my question... how does a glock or any gun with a trigger safety fire in a holster?

He's not wrong. Glocks don't have a true safety, don't care what the website says. Glocks have a high rate of accidental discharge, especially when it comes to holsters and clothing.

There was a case some time back when a guy shot himself in the leg when holstering the gun. The leather of the holster got caught in the trigger guard and BAM!

Another case where a dudes shirt was caught up the same way and it went off.

It's not unheard of.

How though? The firing pin just shoots forward striking the primer how? It's always human error with a ND , striker fires don't have a safety so absolute retards can ND easier than say a 1911. Do you own any guns?

Glocks are light triggers, no safety. If anything gets caught in the trigger guard or an accidental bump of the finger, the gun is likely going off.

A revolver has a much higher safety threshold when it comes to accidental bumpings of the trigger. It would take a very substantial "bump" to pull a revolver and make it fire.

I've shot guns since I was 8 years old and use a DA/SA for this reason. Nothing wrong with a glock but I personally like the safer DA/SA just in case I did something stupid and bumped the trigger accidentally.

Though I ALWAYS keep it in the holster.

If we were allowed to carry here I would, however, I would definitely not carry with a round chambered. I'll take my chances on the one second it takes to chamber a round to avoid something like that happening.

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.

So by him shooting DOWN through his leg and DOWN into the tire, the bullet would have ABSOLUTELY went through your office window? Do you work in hell or something?
