Good example of why there is so much emphasiss put on "proper draw" in defensive pistol clases. At that point his safety should have been on and his finger nowhere near the trigger.

Sometime remind me to tell you about getting my rotorblades shot by a passenger while we were out hunting coyotes in a couple of OH 58s. It was a lot of fun while it lasted.

X2 When the video is in slow motion, you can see him put his finger on the trigger as he draws the weapon. He broke one of the four rules commandments.

That's why you keep your booger hook off of the bang switch. The holster he was using (Blackhawk Serpa http://www.blackhawk.com/pr...Finish,1144,1410.htm ) requires a button to be pushed with the trigger finger in order to release the gun. After the button is pushed and the gun is released the finger tends to want to curl inside the trigger guard and bad things like this can happen. Needless to say, this is not my first choice in holsters.

Interesting. I have a Blackhawk Serpa but never considered that a risk. I will definitely rethink my trigger discipline when using it.

Bwahahaha! Moron....that later.

Gun control! It is mandatory, and not a recommendation.

I had a friend shoot himself before. He was playing cowboy with his 357, and went to put it in the back of his pants. BAM! Two holes in his cheeks, and a nasty burn where his belt lays. The gunshot wounds healed quickly, but the powder burn, the powder burn was just nasty.

The most embarrassing thing is, he was in uniform, which means he had to have had some sort of training. Just what was mounted on the biplane for weapons? Looked like a pair of pistol caliber machine guns, reminds me of something Italian I saw in a book years ago.

That's not true. When I use my Serpa my finger falls on the rail both on the 9mm Beretta I use for work and the XD40 I use at home. I probably have over a thousand draws on this holster and never once has my finger curled into the trigger guard. Now to say this mine is a drop holster.

Not saying it happens to you, just that when you draw in a high stress situation it can happen. Fine motor skills go when the adrenaline is pumping. A lot of firearms trainers actually discourage that holster for that reason. I forget where I saw it, but he had a video explaining that after it happened.

How do you like your XD? I have an XD40sc here, great gun!

Actually most of my draws have been in high stress applications. I was a combat skills instructor for awhile. I know all about the dissaperance of the fine motor skills...it actually has to do with the rate your heart is pumping and the reaction the body has to it to survive the lower levels of oxygen in the blood being delivered (seen the fight or flight last stage of it from a few folks).

I love my XD40. I have the SC as well and wouldn't trade it as my CCW for anything. Only thing I wish SA would have done was put a Pearce style pinkey grip on the short mag from the factory.

Good to hear! Hopefully it continues to work well for you. I know I'm always working on making sure my trigger finger lands in the right spot and not on the trigger. I tend to stick to leather IWB holsters though so it's a little different feel.

My XD is also my go to carry gun. I have a pearce grip extension as well, it's so much nicer to shoot that way with the 9rd mag.

I agree about the 9 round mag. I wish I was a bigger framed guy so I could get away with carrying the larger mags but..if I can't hit em with 9 I shouldn't be shooting at 'em LOL
