    What I saw, was the gun hitting the floor (That was an accident) but, did not fire until he grabbed it, and his finger was in the trigger guard. I call that NEGLIGENT !
    I am also curious about what his BLOOD ALCOHOL COUNT was (BAC) but there is one set of rules for us PEONS and another for the ELITE CLASS !

    Finally had time to watch the videos closely.

    He picked up the firearm with his right hand, and put it back in his waistband with the same hand. He is right-handed.

    I'm right-handed. A while back, when I first armed up, my firearm was on the kitchen table and I went to pick it up. My left hand was closer than my right. My left index finger found the trigger without thinking...

    Yes, it was hot, and no, I did not pull it. I caught myself. I could have let loose a round very easily. That would have been a ND. From watching the video, this one was also a ND. And I'm sure a CTE too.

    Wonder how large the award in the civil trial will be? I would have just damaged some sheetrock and maybe a piece of furniture.

    My experience surprised me on how the smallest detail could make a difference and completely break my practice and expectation of safe handling. But a change in some detail would not have changed my responsibility for my actions. The FBI will probably pay out on it, but the guy should be held responsible for his error. I do expect him to lose his job, I also think he should pay the damages out of his own pocket too; but it is the FBI that will probably be found financially responsible.

    A relative who is a federal LEO carries off duty in an ankle holster. Of course, hes not the type who would be doing a Saturday Night Fever dance off like this dude was doing. Im thinking he will be with Gecko 45 and Wild Dog working security at the mall, I mean construction site.

    I NEVER was able to do backflips. I don't plan on starting to try now. I'd hurt myself and my wife would be over on the couch saying, "I told you you'd hurt yourself. Do you want me to call the ambulance now?"

    I have never liked ankle holsters, even for a backup weapon. I had to chase people several times on the job and I just don't trust them climbing or jumping fences, running full speed, or tackling somebody(plus, I use kicks when fighting and they just don't go well with an ankle holster). I carried my back up (a Walther PPK) in a holster in the small of my back. The rest of the time, even off duty, I carried my regular pistol concealed on my belt or in a shoulder holster, weather allowing.

    my owb holster has adjustable retention, can hold my G17 even if I'm repeatedly dropped on my head. My aiwb holster has a lot of retention 'cause the double-stack grip is very snug against my not very washboardy ab blob. The forgettable backflipping maroon obviously lacked this special retention system.

    The gun did not go off spontaneously. He pulled the trigger when he grabbed it "before anyone noticed".
    That is exactly how I saw it. When ne realized what happened, he tried to pick it up before it was noticed, but failed to keep hos finger off the bang switch.

    I have an ankle holster for my M&P 9 Shield and I have to be careful even riding a desk. But then I have chicken legs so it tends to slip down if I do more than walk.

    I think they gave him a verbal reprimand and dropped any charges. One set of rules for us PEONS. Different set for the ELITE!
