    Dude shoots himself in the groin

    Enough said. Any guesses as to whether or not he had a holster?

    You can't blame the gun or the design if the guy was clearly carrying contrary to that design. You should never carry Glock "Mexican style"

    Perhaps GLOCK should be sold with an installed holster.

    That would be sweet if they teamed up with RAVEN CONCEALMENT SYSTEMS and a VanGuard2 came with every glock.
    When you put the gun in the holster, put the ego in the gun safe.

    On the contrary; I think the Glock safety worked perfectly, since this guy shouldn't and won't be reproducing from now on.

    I didn't know that Glocks had a decocker.

    I think there are some people here that meet the very limited description of the person... hope it wasn't one of us!

    Hmmm... someone who works in HVAC, - carries a concealed Glock in 40cal (probably G27)...nope - no one I know from the area fits the ticket.

    Well, one good thing is they are doing amazing things with prosthetics these days. I've seen several online that are even strapped and are removable.

    I wouldn't make such a broad assumption. I who has been one of the biggest critics of plastic guns as I call them, own a Glock and that trigger isn't that easy to pull in error. There could be more involved like a 3 pound trigger job which many officers have done. To carry any weapon improperly IE in your crotch/waistband is asking for an accidental discharge. I use holsters I don't depend on fate.

    I agree, enough of this malicious prosecution. I find it interesting they rarely go after a criminal with such zeal, yet let some poor sap make an error and they pile on when it is obviously unneeded.

    It is possible to get a shirt stuck in the trigger of a glock while IWBing. Likely, no, but possible if the user isn't careful.

    I do IWB my 20, but never ever with a round in the chamber. Empty chamber, trigger down, or no thanks.

    Not that loaded glocks can't be IWB'd safely, just that I won't be doing it.

    I often IWB my XDm which doesn't have much more safety than a Glock.

    My IWB holster is tight and I don't stick the gun in the holster after it's in my pants. I stick the holstered gun into my pants!

    I don't see my shirt getting in it somehow.

    The XD, in addition to having a much more sensible grip profile to a standard Glock, has a grip safety.

    On the one end you have me, unlikely to blow my nuts off, since I make sure my chamber is still cold every time I have to handle my Glock. On the other end of the spectrum you have this poor guy.

    What's the right way to do it? Well, that's up to each person who carries to decide. One thing that would be a good start, if someone is unsure, is to avoid AIWB carry, so as to avoid a repeat of this.

    If you're going to carry a Glock always use a Kydex holster. Side Armor is a nice one. If you pull the trigger it will go bang every time. That's why I carry one. IWB not AIWB, that's just not for me.
    It never ceases to amaze me how many folks spend 600 bucks on a pistol and zero to 19.95 on a crap holster.

    Allow me to tell you a story.
    Similar thing happened out here. A guy was carrying an XD in his pant pocket. Interesting enough I know. He jumped in his truck, his keys hit the trigger, safety was off, and grip safety was believed to be depressed by his leg somehow. Lodge one deep in his femur.

    Hey, I'm not tryin' to say I'd carry a XD differently. Springfield doesn't offer a 10mm XD, so it's a moot point to me.

    Has nothing to do with a holster, or lack of, guns are designed to go bang when the trigger is pulled. Unless somebody thinks the pants pulled the trigger, about time for some pants control legislation. I seem to remember a guy shot himself in the leg with one of those plastic 'safe' holsters and is now a famous youtube clip.

    Umm, what?

    This guy, being a HCAC tech, carries huge objects in confined spaces. Being in Birmingham, he probably also didn't want to get made, because that would be the sort of thing that would cost him work. Combine all that with a possible tool belt, and apparently not a very well thought out rig, if any, and a Glock, and you're looking at a disaster waiting to happen. If I had to guess, one of his fingers probably found its way to the trigger while he was trying to hastily readjust.

    One thing I've heard of is a finger being negligently left on the trigger upon reholstering. Push the gun back into the holster, trigger finger butts into the holster, pulling the trigger, and boom, negligent discharge. I suppose that might be possible too.

    AIWB carry is pretty awesome when done right, because it can very well hide handguns. But it must be done only after the most careful consideration and selection of equipment. Otherwise this can happen.
