Shooting himself in the leg is not the way Connersville Police Chief David Counceller planned to promote his candidacy for Fayette County sheriff.
Councellerâ€™s 40-caliber Glock handgun accidentally discharged Saturday afternoon while he was at Wullfâ€™s Gun Shop. Counceller, who was off-duty at the time, said heâ€™d been examining a handgun similar to the one he carries.
â€śI need to pay more attention,â€ť Counceller said. â€śI know what the dangers are. It was pure carelessness on my part.â€ť
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.
