    Or in this case your finger off.

    VIDEO: Former GPD Officer Files Lawsuit After Gunstore Incident

    The gunstore owner is blaming the cop. He did rack the slide. But then who keeps a loaded pistol on display. I side with the customer on this one.

    Well, as a "trained and experienced" police officer, he should be more aware than anybody else that " Every gun is always loaded, even when it's not "

    He should have check the chamber while not even consciously aware he was doing it. It should be an ingrained habit. Almost instinct like in nature.

    I check all guns when handling them even after being showed it is empty.

    However. The store is just as at fault in this situation.

    I know to check as well as most who are members of this site, but that doesn't let the gun store off the hook any more than saying that if I was really defensive driving...I wouldn't have been hit by a drunk driver.

    In today's world with ever increasing people buying guns to defend themselves, with more and more first time buyers picking their first guns and first concealed carry guns...the odds of unexperienced gun owners ( who do not practice safe handling ) getting hurt is higher and higher.

    At the very least, the police officer is stupid and careless. He is lucky that somebody wasn't standing beside him and got killed.

    The store is lucky nobody got killed.

    The blame is shared 50/50 with each party being 100% responsible for their share of negligence.

    Both parties were negligent, therefore, I'm sure the civil suit will order "half" settlement so to speak.
    I'm from the government. I'm here to help.

    How long was this guy a COP?

    Step #1 in clearing a semiauto is; with the gun pointed in a "SAFE" direction and finger "OFF" the trigger...then "REMOVE THE MAGAZINE" first, then retract the slide to exam the chamber.

    I'd say they both bought into this goat *******.

    Why would anyone put their finger or hand IN FRONT of the muzzle? Loaded or not.

    The cop is clearly an idiot, but I think the gun store is going to catch the blame on this one. The clerk is still responsible for the gun, wether he's handing it to a cop or an elderly widow.

    I wonder what the reaction of the two guys at the end of the counter was after they realized they almost got shot because of the combined stupidity of two other people.
