not only that he left his firearm laying on the ground unsecured right next to those prisoners.

Looks to me like he was taking his gun out of the lockbox.

He was retrieving his weapon.

Never attempt to holster your weapon with your finger on the trigger, and this sort of thing won’t happen.

“Looks to me like he was taking his gun out of the lockbox.”

I think you are right. It looks like was putting it somewhere on his backside

Must have been the booger hook on the bang switch.

Maybe they should invent a thing called a ‘safety lock’, and put them on all guns.

I’ve ‘heard’ that you can remove the cartridges from the chamber or magazine, and that it will help keep the gun from accidentally firing.

From this moment forward, for the remainder of my life, when referring to firearms, I will never use the terms “finger” or “trigger.” I will only use “booger hook” and “bang switch.”

Talk about carving yourself a new one........

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Strapless holsters like the SERPA allow materials to enter the trigger guard. If you aren’t careful your coat zipper or other loose fitting items can cycle the trigger when you slide the weapon into the holster.

“not only that he left his firearm laying on the ground unsecured right next to those prisoners.”

Leaving it with the prisoners was probably safer than him handling it.

The S&W MP40c (and other calibers) comes with or without a thumb safety.
I purchased the ‘with’ model. IMO carrying a pistol with a loaded chamber and no safety is asking for trouble.
Yes, Glocks have 3 ‘safeties’. But the long and short of it is, pull the trigger..Bang. No other manipulation is necessary.

Did the boarder patrol agent then throw a bean bag at him?
