It doesn’t matter who you are. Knowing your firearm and the way you carry are essential parts to eliminating a negligent discharge.
This video shows a police chief accidentally firing his firearm while re-holstering inside a gun shop. The culprit was the drawstring on his jacket.
This video is an important lesson of attire: Be aware of anything that you are wearing that could make it’s way into your trigger guard. YOU are responsible for your firearm.
We’d like to note: at the end of this video, we learn that the police chief experienced a negligent discharge while assembling his firearm. He believed it was unloaded. We don’t like to point fingers…but he should have been very aware of the condition of his firearm. Not even because he’s a police chief, but because he’s a gun owner.
