GhostTX According to an "insider" comment, the group muttered about a firecracker going off and tried to leave.

That aggravates me more than anything else, if true. They tried to pass it off as no big deal and leave without taking any responsibility that it occurred.

GAP If there's no holster, the gun isn't secure. Take his CHL away IMO, and fine the dipshit if possible. He's putting citizens at risk, as he's already proven.

I'd agree to an extent, but the lack of holster is what changed my mind. The weapon needs to be secure and in a jacket pocket is not secure in my opinion. Maybe he had a holster and took it out because it is not comfortable to sit with or something - to me that is not an excuse.

grove rat i say that if you can keep your gun from going off then your shit needs to be suspended...but at the same time it is bound to happen to someone(CHL holder). if it happened to me i would still want to keep mine of course

That is completely up to the police in charge of the investigation. If the officer, or his boss is a prick, or finds the guy negligent, the will loose it.

must have been a hammered gun and the hammer got caught on something. i carry a hammerless S&W and since it's double action only you gotta really pull or tug on the trigger to make it action. no way a slight touch of the trigger will make it go off

Got skeered, can't blame him for being scared but of all times not to run that is one of them. Plus, he should've had a holster. I've not been carrying due to not being able to afford a holster until recently. Saftey of everyone else first.

Mr_fiux My piece of shit Lorcin goes off if you hold it wrong, let alone drop it... I never keep it chambered.
12-18-2009 05:52 PM
kingjason We use to have some real shitty holsters. Level one with just a snap and the snaps were crap. I can not tell you how many times while running my gun and others have hit the concrete and of course one in the chamber and no safety. Sig 357's and not one has ever went off. I have also dropped my Bersa and Keltec and neither have went off. We have level two and threes now. Even with the level two if it is not just the right tightness and you snap the hood down and forget to snap it back up while running it will toss it out. Good times and not a good feeling. LOL

If your slide lock spring is not retained by a screw, you should send it in and have them update it for free. There is an RA form on their site.

You are doing it wrong or the gun is messed up. Call Kahr and ask them about it, it should chamber when the slide is drawn back either by hand or locked open.
12-18-2009 11:22 AM
ceyko I suppose if you're having a bad enough day that your gun has been dropped, i bet you're having a bad enough day that the trigger will get somehow get snagged/pulled on something (to include finger trying to catch it).

Thankfully no one was hurt. Wonder if he'll get punished for that and what it'll be.

Can't ask someone to wait a second while I rack the slide, and alot of the sub compacts don't like to chamber that way anyway.
I train myself to always rack the slide and drop the safety on my semiautomatics before I bring it into firing position. Am I loosing valuable seconds on bringing it on target? Probably - but when I pull the trigger I know that the gun is in battery. I don't want to have to pull the trigger and realize that the safety was on or that a round wasn't chambered. Those seconds lost are the ones that matter.

I've never had a handgun fail to chamber a round if a magazine is properly inserted. If yours doesn't then I'd consider that a malfunction in need of repair.

the only way it would not chamber if you pulled it back is only if you did not pull the slide ALL the way back

ELVIS you are right I was thinking of the LCP. I had to send the thing in and was without it for 2 or 3 weeks, you would think I would remember something like that.
They did recall the SR9, I remember seeing signs up all over Academy and Alpine, but I don't remember why.

That's kind of what I think, or the dropped and tried to catch theory.


FWIW, I carry my XD chambered and ready to go. I am just exceedingly careful with it when handling it.

i was completely stone sober the night I dropped my XD on the floor, and it didn't go off. For a bare split cunt hair of a second I almost tried catching it, then I just made sure I was on the back side of it, lol. Very frightening.

by far the scariest half a second evar!

Jedi Like carrying a pane of glass. If it starts to fall, let it go. (witnessed a guy at Richland college back in the 90's try to save a pane that they were installing. ended up severing his right hand at the wrist)
12-18-2009 08:48 AM
Pokulski-Blatz He likely tried to catch it and snagged the trigger. If you drop a gun just let it fall, try to catch it and its a recipe for disaster.
12-18-2009 08:37 AM

slow06 Firing when dropped is rare, but I do believe it happens.

I have heard Commiefornia either does drop tests or requires manufacturers to do them to be allowed to sell there. Also, someone recalled some of their guns (I believe it was the Ruger SR9) because it may fire when dropped.

Glad nobody was hurt and take care of your guns people!

Accidental Discharge in Sherman!

And no, it wasn't me. Luckily, no one was hurt.

A man at Johnny Carino's Tex-Italian restaraunt (and is a CHL holder) was putting on his jacket and getting ready to leave. I caught the tail end of the story on the radio this morning, so I might be a little foggy on the exact happenings. Either way, as he was putting on his jacket, either his gun fell to the floor, or his jacket containing the gun fell to the floor, and went off. No one was hit by the stray shot.

I call shenanigans, because I can't think of any modern handgun that will fire simply from being dropped on the floor. As a matter of fact, I dropped my XD one day in my apartment, and it was loaded. While the matter gave me a good look at pants shitting fear, nothing happened.

Either way, thought yall might be interested. I'll look for a link to a news story in a bit.
