    Man Shoots His Leg At A Range That I Frequent

    I am really glad that I missed this event. I'll have to make a discreet inquiry the next time I am there to learn if it was a Glock.

    While reholstering....that act is the one you have the most time for. There is no clock on putting your gun away so why not be sure of how you do it? I personally am very paranoid about the reholstering process and always make sure I'm in the clear while doing so...

    I'd be interested, too, if you can find more details about what happened. Ours is an unforgiving sport/hobby/interest. It only takes one careless moment.

    This is why many ranges do not allow the use of holsters.....
    Definition of clip

    1: any of various devices that grip, clasp, or hook
    2: a device to hold cartridges for charging the magazines of some rifles; also : a magazine from which ammunition is fed into the chamber of a firearm.

    Yes. Both the local ranges I frequent do not allow holsters.

    Yes, but sometimes the first sign of a rules violation is when someone’s bleeding...

    This is a common rule at ours also. The Fox Valley Shooting Range permits holster draw once one has completed their course which provides instruction. I imagine that the first lesson is...don't pull the trigger while reholstering.

    I have replaced my carry gun back in my holster after practicing with it. I am an advocate for manual safeties however and this is one of the main reasons I like them.

    I like DA, and this is why. I've got a new TH9c and really prefer it to anything else. It offers options and I carry it safety off hammer down. If one is REALLY paranoid, one could holster OR carry hammer down, safety on which would eliminate any possibility of the problem, but I've been carrying DA revolvers and autos long enough to trust myself reholstering them. And, I can practice that at MY range. I set the rules.

    I've got this PT145 which I carried a lot when I first got it. It's single action with a thumb safety. I couldn't get comfy on the draw with that wide grip and that tiny safety. It really slowed my draw. I thought about just carrying it safety off. It'd basically be a Springfield XD without the grip safety. I have the thumb safety to holster with, then kick it off. That just goes against my better instincts, though. I still have the weapon, can carry it, but never in the mood since getting that TH9c.

    With the potential drop issus of the PT 145, the only way I would carry it would be with the manual safety on (and set of course without depressing the trigger! )

    Seems like "no bleeding" would be a good rule for any range. Ate least it would get a chuckle!
