Glock Safety Warning

Here we go again.  Although in this case the accident was the result of a worn holster, it was exacerbated by the ‘type’ of gun contained therein. The ‘type’ of gun being a striker-fired Glock semi-automatic handgun. Now before you jump down my throat, is it not true that all too often when an Accidental Discharge (AD) happens, it is usually caused by operator error? Is is also true that the bulk of the accidental discharges are more common with a Glock weapon than any other? I don’t have anything personally against them, but for a weapon with “supposedly” three safeties to prevent it from occurring, they sure seem to go off a lot anyway.

As a lesson in gun safety/maintenance, this anonymous person still wanted to post this as a lesson to all. And yes, there is a spot of blood in the accompanying pictures so for those few sensitive people, you might want to omit the last photograph. Although I get that much blood from one of my finger-sticks (diabetes, blood-sugar testing). Moral of the story: Always make sure your gear is in top operating condition.
