Gun Accidentally Discharges

is is a gunshot accident that was just waiting to happen. A man got into his car and when he went to fasten his seatbelt, his Glock 18 accidently discharged. The gunshot blew a 9mm hole through the bottom of the leather seat of his car’s door frame, his underwear, and his pants. Luckily, the man was only slightly injured.

The victim says:
“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.

And why do you have a gun with you? Do you plan to shoot anyone?

I guess this guy broke at least 1000 rules of security.
I mean, going around with a gun charged (bullet inserted in canon) and without security enabled, is just insane and criminal!

1) It's pointless to carry a gun if it isn't "charged." If you're carrying it for protection/security reasons, you want to stop and tell the criminal, "Hey, can you hang on for just a second while I load my gun?"

2) It's a Glock. There are no safeties to engage on a Glock.

3) It is a crap holster...

In US you can carry a gun almost in every place.
But it's STUPID having a loaded gun with you (with bullet in chamber)!!!

You keep a first aid kit in your house? What's the matter, afraid you're going to cut yourself? You keep a fire extinguisher near your kitchen? Smoke detector? What's the matter, afraid you're going to have a fire? Carrying a gun is a right in the USA and it's smart to be prepared to defend yourself against deadly force. It happens, best to be prepared. The guy had a poor holster which is to blame for the accidental discharge. Better to be prepared and thought paranoid than to be unprepared - and found dead. You Europeans - no use complaining about it because you're rulers have determined you will not be allowed to defend yourself against deadly force. In your countries only criminals carry guns. Best to give them what they want, hope for the best, and report to the police if you're not killed. And please don't tell me there is no gun violence in your country. There is, and you are not allowed to defend yourself against deadly force.

Let me ask, whats rule #1 of "security" for you? And 2, why in gods name would you carry an unloaded firearm? Or as youd like to call it "charged" with a bullet in the "canon"? What are you gonna do if the other hand cannot be used to load the weapon???? Are you gonna use your dick to pull the charging handle back? 3, crime doesnt discriminate to bad places...its everywhere! Yes including Starbucks. 4, I pride myself for living in a placr that allows me to use deadly force when deemed necessary. Guns dont kill ppl...stupid motherfuckers do!
So next time you hear on the news how some idiot went on a rampage killing everyone in sight, hope that law abiding citizen was around to put one in his ass...since Im sure the cops will be there in less than a min to stop him

I notice that the Brits, French, and others were damned happy to see armed Americans come in and chase off the nasty old Germans--twice in the same century. Nuff said!
