    No Finger Needed, Holster Warning

    I know this makes me less than cool as the new hotness is to assure shooters that guns do not go off unless people have their "booger hook on the bang switch" or what they hip, trendy saying is with you kids.

    Remember, every time you load, every time you unload, and everytime you sit down or move, the weapon can discharge.

    INGO, check your gear, quality holsters and belts. Check where you wear your holster, yes, yes, I know at the Super Advanced Mall Ninja Class, Level VIII, that the instructor told you that "appendix carry" is the new hotness and looks cool with your Van Dyke and dirty baseball cap. However, on the other hand, remember Steve Malloy and remember where your muzzle is when you sit down.

    Now, enough from INGO's head safety nanny and let's all look at the muzzle blast wound from the pistol discharging in the holster upon twisting:

    That's a helluva post. And a lucky guy to only get grazed.

    A tactical retreat is not a bad response to a surprise assault, you know. First you survive. Then you choose your own ground. Then you counterattack.

    If that's not an "OH *" Moment, I don't know what is.
    Glad the gentleman is OK and got by with just a graze.

    Thanks for the heads up, Kirk!

    OUCH!

    I assume that model Glock only has a trigger safety? I didn't see a grip or manual safety in the pictures.

    Just another story about those Glocks damaging perfectly good holsters and causing AD's. Guy's lucky it didn't blow up and take off his whole leg.

    It was his own fault...

    That is why I check my holster before I put it on...

    Also why I like Kydex..

    Just playing my role of safety nanny.

    You stay safe down there in Morgan County.

    I thought the manual safety Glocks were only marketed in Europe? Maybe some are here in the States, I don't know. Looks like a normal Glock without a manual safety to me (I'm not an expert though).

    Could be one of those add on jobbies that they market here in the States.

    Also why I like Kydex
    Kydex has its own issues, but good thinking checking your gear. Let's keep INGO with only Nature-issued holes.

    It is just scratch, he is not dead yet.
