    Things that make you go hmmmmm......

    I'm wondering how a gun simply "goes off".

    Was it in his holster and climbed out or laying around and got up and shot on its own? If I were a betting man I would bet he, they were doing something they should not have.

    For some reason I bet if it was one of us it would have said "Concealed carry permit holder tries to murder fellow permit holder."

    While I do believe it is possible for some guns to malfunction and fire accidently, I do not believe they will do this in the holster unhandled.

    Uhhh... yeah. About that? Yeah. I think said police officer was doing something he shouldn't have been with that gun.

    Not likely the gun fired itself while holstered as the other officer was hit in the chest . . . must have jumped out of the holster somehow . . . dang those guns that go off by themselves--they give a bad name to all the others, you know, the well behaved ones that don't fire until the trigger is pulled.

    Just another sterling example of why only experts should be allowed to handle guns!:Poep:

    Imagine this - The officer who had the "self-firing" gun was demonstrating a hand stand and somehow the gun went off. Looking at various LEO duty rigs, this is the only way I can see the other officer getting shot in the chest.

    Just goes to show that all holsters should have a retention strap. If they don't (just ask any gungrabber) the gun is capable of jumping out of the holster and start shooting at people.
