Woman killed after off-duty Detroit officer's gun goes off
There is one line in that story that everyone that carries needs to read and take to heart:
Police say this 16 year veteran officer had the Smith and Wesson M&P .40 caliber handgun in a soft neoprene holster. It was on his waist when it somehow accidentally fired.
"It is possible still for the trigger to be manipulated with that type of holster," said Godbee.
USE A QUALITY HOLSTER.
- Don't use a $10 "one-size-fits-none" nylon or neoprene holster.
- Use a quality, purpose built belt.
- Leave the gun in the holster and don't touch it unless it is an emergency
- Carry a quality gun.
Follow these rules, and concealed carry will be more comfortable, more concealed, and SAFER.
