From the Indy Star:

Shooting himself in the leg is not the way Connersville Police Chief David Counceller planned to promote his candidacy for Fayette County sheriff.

Counceller’s 40-caliber Glock handgun accidentally discharged Saturday afternoon while he was at Wullf’s Gun Shop. Counceller, who was off-duty at the time, said he’d been examining a handgun similar to the one he carries.

“I need to pay more attention,” Counceller said. “I know what the dangers are. It was pure carelessness on my part.”

And, one of the reasons for Glock’s “NY Trigger.” Too many cops were shooting themselves as they holstered their guns and a jacket cord or something would lodge inside the trigger guard. It’s why, though I’ve owned them in the past, I much prefer a pistol with an actual safety switch.
