Accidental Discharge

Caused by a soft leather holster. Interesting. A good case for kydex or hard leather holsters, I suppose.

    He admits it was a Glock.
    Refreshing bit of honesty.

    I’m glad I read the link. “Accidental Discharge” and “soft leather holster” had me going down a whole nother path entirely!

    Unpossible! On the Internetz I am told that only putting your finger on the trigger will result in a firearms discharging.

    Next you’ll be telling me that guns go off when loaded or unloaded or by hard blows. Simply unpossible.

    So my well-used leather holster can fire my Glock, just like my finger left in the trigger guard can do when I use my Kydex IWB holster! Apparently to fire a loaded Glock, all it takes is for the trigger to be depressed.

    I think I’ll send my Glock trigger a bunch of flowers and a nice card so it won’t feel depressed.

    Or a good case for a gun with a safety, a la 1911.

    Point missed. Look at the photos. This guy totally failed to take care of his holster, got it wet, many times, and it re-moulded to fill in the trigger guard area, which contains the trigger when the gun is holstered.

    I imagine he lives in a hot climate, and sweated profusely at his belt-line, and the inside-the-belt holster picked up the sweat, repeatedly.

    Correctimundo, Kydex would solve this problem. It’s NOT a Glock problem, it’s a HOLSTER problem. I can think of lots of other DAO pistols besides Glocks that this failure-to-maintain-equipment would affect.

    Itís NOT a Glock problem, itís a HOLSTER problem.

    Itís NOT a holster problem, itís an OWNER problem.

    I canít say I didnít know the crease had been formed in the holster. I trained myself to be sure that when holstering, to make sure the gun was fully in the holster, with the trigger protected.

    He knew about the improper condition of his equipment, and rather than replacing or repairing it he simply made a practice of compensating for it – until one day he didn’t, and had an ND.

    The material, construction, and quality of the holster are all irrelevant. He continued to use a broken safety device, and paid the price.

    Fortunately, neither he nor his wife, or any innocent bystanders, were injured or killed.

    Leather holsters work just fine, and have worked just fine for hundreds of years now, so long as you maintain them. This firearm carrier failed to maintain his equipment, and, thankfully, the price he had to pay for it is small. Hopefully he will learn from the experience.

    It was the owner the holster looked horrible and not well taken care of.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
