    I don't know if there is any available data comparing self-defense shootings vs negligent discharges but if the NG's don't outnumber the self-defense shootings, I am fairly sure that their numbers would be 'competitive'.

    Whenever I read about guys working on their carry weapon's striker-fired trigger to lighten the pull, I cringe and think to myself that there is no way in Hell I would ever do that.

    Gawd. ain't THAT the truth! I figure if they can't handle a 4 lb mushy trigger, they need a 1911 with TWO safeties, one on the grip and one at the thumb. Or, just learn to shoot DA. It ain't THAT tough. I learned on the best training gun possible for this, a DA revolver. What I lack in grey matter for carrying guns with no safeties, I make up for with mad DA shooting skillz.

    yea me too!
    almost everytime It was the result of a poorly (Or no training ) Engineer that had way to much pressure on the hose line.
    when you see three Firemen get lifted off their feet its kind of a sign of to much pressure!---LOL
    I was a Water Supply officer with the FD in my later 4-5 years after we got Large Diameter Hose and hydraulics was just kind of my thing well before then, I swear some of the Engineers there were just pitiful and many had been Engineers for many years as well.
    course IF you can't multiply or divide then likely you can't work out formulas>
    what can I say hiring requirements kind of went down the tube about 1980.

    TRUE!
    but then again the real Far Truck (Ladder truck) has several high capacity Gasoline saws for use!
    and the ever popular big thingy that mashes stuff really good, also known as the Hurst Power Rescue Tool, can't recall any Farman mashing his finger either?

    Staying with this theme, I'm guessing there was quite a bit of "pressure" in that "tube" as well...
