GLOCK ND

Postby swampwise » Mon Apr 11, 2011 2:51 pm

Got this in an email the other day. Just because it's a Glock doesn't mean it can't fail. Not the Glock's fault in this case, but evidence that you should ALWAYS TREAT ALL GUNS AS IF THEY'RE LOADED ALL THE TIME. Don't get too comfortable people.

>>“What the hell was that?!?” she said. It took me a half a second to realize that my gun had just gone off…on my hip…in its holster. My wife and I had just finished breakfast at our favorite café and got into the car.
Me being the passenger, I rotated my torso to the left to fasten my seatbelt like I always do. When I straightened again, my Glock 19 discharged, blowing a 9mm hole through my pants, underwear, the leather seat and bottom of the car’s door frame.
The bullet nicked my hip, but the wound is nothing a bandage couldn’t cover. So what went wrong? Guns never go “Bang” all by themselves.
After ensuring I wasn’t hemorrhaging profusely and didn’t have to make a dash for the hospital, I stayed seated in the car as my wife came around to my door and opened it. I undid my belt and slid the Galco JAK202 Slide Belt Holster, with the gun still in it, off my belt. Why it went off was immediately apparent.

Be careful with guns. This could have been much worse for this unlucky guy...
