There will be no follow up to the story because the gun was owned by some off-duty cop.

^   As soon as the article said "the gun is being processed by the police agency and by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to try to determine its owner and to see whether it has ever been used in a crime. " That's what I thought.  It's quite likely that the gun owner was immediately identified through the serial number and they're just saying this to avoid any questions about who the owner is.  It's also interesting that they don't mention the model, because Glocks are the most popular choice for law enforcement, and certain models are almost never carried by regular citizens, and almost always carried by police.

Noland, 48, a Marine veteran with years of gun experience and a concealed weapons permit, said the weapon just needed the slide pulled back to chamber a round. Then the trigger could be pulled to shoot it.

Great, you've come to entertain us with your complete lack of firearms knowledge again!  It's perfectly to carry a Glock with a round chambered if you use a proper holster.  The only people who ever shoot themselves in the way you're thinking, do so with their gun tucked into their waistband, or a pocket.

Hmm then it really isn't a loaded firearm. Sounds like someone needs to go back and learn some basics.

He also went on to add "They could even pull the trigger a second time to fire an additional shot. If they really wanted to, they could do this 8 more times. What makes this really bad, is that after that, they could drive to Walmart, purchase more ammo, press the magazine release to free the magazine from the weapon, load more bullets into the magazine using a down-and-foward motion, insert the magazine into the magazine well, rack the slide to chamber another round, and pull the trigger again to fire another round as many as 10 more times. In fact, this cycle could be repeated MANY times to fire many more bullets"

Thank you Marine Captian Obvious for that indepth lesson on how guns work. Glad to see those many years of gun experience coming in handy.

I read this far "Zane Noland opened a bathroom stall door [...]" and rolled my eyes.  Sheesh!  People don't seem to have thought out their concealed carry plans.  "Oh.  How am I going to do this?  I'll just adjust...no, it'll hit the floor with my pants.  Maybe if I...no, I don't want someone to pass by the stall and see me holding my piece while on the pot.  Um.  I'll just put it on top of the TP for now.  I'll surely remember on my way out!"  :D

/Only farking numbnuts build - and only no-nuts carry - a weapon without a safety.


Those of us who have learned to keep the booger hook off the bang switch don't need safeties. In fact, only an idiot would rely on a manual safety to work. Treat every gun as if though it is loaded, and is not safetied, and you should be ok.

I carried a Glock 19 for many years. Never had a single mishap despite a lack of a 'safety'. 2000 rounds through it, and never a single FTF. Recently I switched to a Steyr M9. (More comfortable, like the sights better) which also has no safety. When I want to carry a smaller weapon, I carry a Sig P232, which has (guess what) no safety. The only time I could see a safety being useful is if you are carrying a SA only weapon like a 1911 which a round chambered and the hammer locked back.

Or loaded hunting rifles. I have a 1917 Enfield that has something like a 1/2 lb trigger pull. But I assume for the purposes of the above conversation we were only talking about handguns.

Yep, though whether a child of 9 has the strength to rack the slide in order to actually chamber a round is debatable.

On a related note:  Who the fark carries in Condition 3?  That's asking for trouble:  When you need to shoot, often it's a split second thing, and racking the slide takes time if you don't practice it as part of your draw, which I'm sure most people don't.  The Glock is specifically designed to be carried with a round in the chamber.
