Gun store negligent discharge Login/Join

Visited a gun store in Birmingham Alabama this morning. Had just walked in after my hour drive and headed for the bathroom when BOOM. I decided I didn’t need to go anymore.

Some dummy in the bathroom had an ND. Clerks hollared into the bathroom area to check on the guy. I could hear him say “my holster and it just went off”. Didn’t catch the first part of his statement.

He wasn’t hurt and fortunately no other employees or patrons were hurt.

I overheard them ( the goober and the manager/employee) talking about slamfire and HKVP9.

I left shortly after all this, too much drama for me.

Be careful out there folks. There is a dumbass that can’t keep his piece holstered or his finger out of the trigger guard when he goes to the shitter. I’m sure he’s not the only one.


Regards,

P.

Jesus.

I wouldn't have needed to go any more either.

I would, however, have needed to find a laundromat...

According to the internet’s...

“A slamfire is a premature, usually unintended discharge of a firearm that occurs as a cartridge is being loaded into the chamber. Slamfires are most common in military firearms that have a free-floating firing pin, as opposed to a spring-loaded one.”

Bullshit.

He didn't check his holster while holstering or the holster was a cheap piece of crap or he had his finger on the trigger when holstering. Many instances reported of trigger catching on clothing or drawstrings inside holster when holstering, "Glock leg". Nothing to do with slam fire but much less embarrassing to blame the firearm or to try and divert liability.

Yep, that's what i was thinking too. Fortunately the only injury was this dude's ego.

There are dummies in this world. I hope that his luck does not run out, he could have killed somebody.

In the 70’s I was in a gun shop in Mobile, Alabama that had a in house gunsmith, he came into the retail area and let everyone know that he was about to function fire a gun in the back (yes he had a bullet trap). As soon as he closed he door two city police came in the front door. No one said a word and when the gunsmith ripped off several rounds the police guys were crouching behind the glass display cases with guns drawn. Those of us who had been forewarned just looked at them and congratulated them on their fast reaction time. A good laugh was had by all.
