    Your point? I used to do that with my Hi Power till it was replaced by another gun.

    I also don't understand the hate for the Serpa holsters, when I draw from mine, my finger is along side the frame away from the trigger guard. Also for open carriers retention holsters would make a gun grab harder, they are rare but I have heard of them happening with cops and the same could happen with someone open carrying. I believe the Serpa Blackhawk holster is also one of the holsters that our troops use.

    I think the biggest lesson to be learned from this incident is to have a first aid kit with you. He mentioned in the video that he was able to patch himself up before the EMTs arrived. We should all have a kit, capable of treating a GSW in our range bags, and the knowledge to use it.

    like bugs bunny said ,What a maroon

    I must say that I have seen it happen myself.
    The only thing different was the guy was shooting steel plates. He shot himself in the top right calf of his leg. Browning high power in 9mm.
    I have done the same draw and target set up thousands of times.
    I call it a push and shoot. Never shot myself (yet).
    Too fast to the safety and the trigger. Nothing more to be said!
    He skrewed up. Plain and simple.
    The gun of choice for me in the fast draw game is a DA revolver or DA auto.
    And I hope if I need my training to kick in I will call 911 first, then my mom.
