    Sounds like it could have been a lot worse. Good thing he was not using a AIWB holster.

    He might have gotten the third leg.

    I hope the fella gets healed up fast!

    I agree with NT, I like the DA/SA trigger. Hammer decocked, place thumb on hammer while holstering. Plus as mentioned, holstering is off the clock!

    But reholstering is the part of the act of shooting which gets the least airtime teaching, practice, testing, etc. I’ve asked several times over the years how many people actually practice the “presentation” of the gun before shooting begins and who practices the reholstering or “make safe” part of the act of shooting and rarely get responses to this question.

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    I frequent three different ranges here and none allow holster carry on the range, like Czechbikr stated I prefer manual safety I own several pistols without manual safety but usually do not carry them full time.

    I suppose I can't say much......smacked my hand with a hammer more than once. ...can't recall what it was doin' at those times but it musta' been up to somethin' or I wouldn't have had to resort to violence. Still......hard to imagine a leg doin' anything that'd warrant shootin' it.

    Oh, I dunno. I've had a few leg cramps while crawling under a Kenworth or a semi-trailer where I wondered if just shooting myself in the leg might be less painful than what that charlie horse felt like.

    Used to carry one of those. Then I did some tests to see how thin cloth could affect ND risk while holstering. Sold the XD, got a PT740.

    Even a worn out or misshapen holster can cause a discharge. Used to be a video or article about such here somewhere.

    Did you keep your hand off the grip safety when reholstering? I always figured that would be the idea with an XD, just hold the grip by your finger tips and holster. Well, it's at least one safety a Glock doesn't have. I think, though, if I got an XD, it'd be the XDe, DA hammer gun.
