Yeouch!



I'm glad I don't have to worry about something like that happening to me as I will never have a CCW permit issued to me -- one of the "benefits" of residing in California.

+1 . Take care of your gear & it will take care of you. Neglect it & this is the result. It could have been much worse!

I think another factor here is that the holster did not fit the gun well in the first place.

one of my biggest fears is honestly getting stationed in california. most of my guns wouldnt be able to make the trip...that and fort irwin is 38 miles from anything....





and yes this could have been much worse. imagine the news media if it had discharged in the restaurant he had just left....

That actually happened in north Houston a month or so ago.



A CHL holder accidentally dropped a Derringer .380 as he was getting up to leave, and it discharged. The bullet entered an elderly woman's leg and traveled up into her abdomen. Not sure how she made out; can't find the story online at the moment.



He was carrying the Derringer in a jacket pocket.

Yikes! Now that is one bad situation. I've never desired to carry a derringer type weapon but that is a good reminder that it is very important that you want to make sure you have a safe gun that will fire ONLY when you pull the trigger. I bet if the Glock this post was originally about was dropped it would not have fired. Now, I'm not saying we need to all go around carrying our firearms in ways that can send them falling to the ground, but it is something else to think about.

Good props for the advantages of a good fit and a reinforced mouth!

Two comments about this. The first being this is why I'd never carry a Glock, all something has to do is press hard enough on the "safety" on the trigger and it will go "BOOM".



Secondly. That holster looks like it is much more than a year old, or else someone has been putting a lot of Lexol or other leather softener on it to make it nice and soft. That's a Galco holster and they don't use leather that would get that soft that quickly, in fact I don't know of any holster company with good leather holsters who would have one looking that old with a year's worth of use.



One more comment. I also wonder if this is not the wrong holster for this gun. Would almost bet someone bought a holster he was able to force his gun into at the store and then soaked it in leather softener so it would stretch enough to fit his gun.
