    Unless you are changing holsters or firing, or cleaning your gun, it should be safe in it's holster.Mine usually go from place to place in the holster, unless I change guns or holsters, there isn't really a reason to touch the gun. Kitchen knives and hammers can cause worse accidents than any firearm, it's the user that causes the problem not the inatimate object. A table saw will cut off your fingers if you aren't paying attention to what you are doing. Just walk into a machine shop and ask the guys missing fingers, how it happened. If you take your eyes off the road, you will crash, it is a very dangerous world for peiple who aren't paying attention.
    To blame an object for harming the user is like a child yelling "he did it", the object alone can do nothing without the interaction of the person.
    People make mistakes every day, they have all kinds of accidents, from slipping and falling and breaking a hip or leg, to cutting themselves with a piece of glass or a knife while cooking or washing the dinner dishes. You can't blame a lawnmower for cutting off someones toes who isn't paying attention.
    The gun is the same thing, a good debater can use any object as a substitute for the "gun" and make a biased argument as to why lead pencils are dangerous and should be banned, after all you can lose an eye to one. There is no safety or holster for one and anyone can buy one. Now what was your point again.Cars, Cigarettes, Alcohoal, these all
    Kill more people than any gun. I bet more agents died from car accidents than Glocks.
