American Statesman ^ | 3/7/13 | Julie Chang

Posted on 03/07/2013 8:31:59 AM PST by OKRA2012

A Round Rock police officer shot himself in the foot during fire arms training Wednesday. The incident happened about 1:45 p.m. at a local facility, said Round Rock police spokeswoman Dee Carver. The officer, who was receiving training with other officers from an outside provider, was treated at a Round Rock hospital and released later in the day, she said. The officer has been on the force for 18 years, Carver said. Police are still investigating the incident.

He has been on the force for 18 years which indicates he may have been conducting the training.

Bang!

I used to work a Community College with a police academy. One of the trainees shot himself in the buttocks while on the shooting range. Evidently he didn’t remember the instruction to refrain from touching the trigger until his weapon cleared its holster.

This officer should just retire now as he’ll be teased for the rest of his career about this.

Have the other Round Rock “officers” taken to randomly shooting up pickup trucks yet?

How much you want to bet he was using a “Glock” where the “safety” is on the trigger? Ducks as the Glock guys come out of the woodwork.....

No, this is Texas. Pickup trucks are in abundance and they shoot back.

This is why our local shooting range bans holster draw practice. Someone needs to develop a holster where the side automatically opens up to prevent such occurrences.
