Thread: Negligent Discharges Happen
Video isn't myself. Found it on youtube.
But it's informative about how negligent discharges can happen to anyone.
This is where rule number 3 comes into effect. ALWAYS keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you intend to fire.
Practice good trigger control and you will never have a ND. At least like that anyways.
This guy was on Tosh.O for a web redemption. Funny.
Id rather look at my ugly Glock than shoot your fancy S&W.
Most always buy morrons. Negligent Discharge got u kicked Off The Teams when I was In Army if it didnt get u killed
When you say firing teams, are you referring to just being at the range qualifying? If that's the case my favorite incident was when a active duty Army Sergeant was at Mountain Home Air Force base for some reason doing his qualify shooting. He decided to ignore the range instructor and do his own thing, nothing really happened to the guy except for making himself look like an ass. Scared the piss out of me though when he decided to start swinging his rifle side to side while firing.
Nothing better than a Glock.........except maybe another Glock!
Guy was also pretty clumsy knocking the holster off the table (at least it appeared to fall off).
This could have definitely been avoided, which he admitted, but I think its a good thing he posted it. Shows maturity and humility, in my book. And a clear example of what NOT to do.
Reminds me vaguely of something an old instructor told me once, "You spend enough time around guns, one'll go off when you don't mean it to." His examples were discharges due to poor maintenance, design flaws, and/or situational things, but I've seen it proven true on a couple of occasions.
On a comical note, it also reminds me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxWWJaTEdD0
Bob Munden's got nothing to worry about from that guy ....
...but I'm a whole lot more interested in the "related video" to the right side of that one about "body casting" -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2uzL...eature=related
As he states in the video this is directly related to improper use of equipment or improper training with equipment. It is not the fault of the product in any way.
This is exactly the kind of issue that occurs with the sympathetic grip and it can happen with ANY holster.

You've got to see this one...
When you put the gun in the holster, put the ego in the gun safe.
