So, usually when a "responsible gun owner" shoots somebody the gun nuts immediately re-classify them as one of the bad guys who make responsible gun owners look bad.

Trouble with striker fired weapons is the trigger must be pulled to remove the slide from the firearm.  That leads to this sort of shenaniganization. Of course, the glock fans will swear up and down that there is nothing wrong with this design, but idiots will continue to shoot themselves because of this simple flaw.

Thanks to adhering to that rule I didn't shoot myself in the foot when I chambered a round in a horribly dirty 22 rifle. I took a little shrapnel in my ankle but it didn't go very deep so I picked it out with a needle.

Be that as it may, even the most cursory check will show if the magazine is still in the weapon.

Which you should it you are stripping the weapon.

Maybe there should be a little flag that pops out when a round is in the chamber.  Sort of like mailboxes in rural areas.  It could even be an American flag!  That way everyone knows who the good guy is.  The bad guy would just rip off that flag on his gun.

Actually, now that I think of it, the bad guy could just leave the flag on, and emulate a good guy.   Sneaky, but effective.   Best not use flags, then.  My bad.

I've learned there are two kinds of cops in this world.

Dirty cops, and cops who look the other way.

This accident should keep him from tasing kindergartners and old ladies for a while.

Once again, a story about a firearm instructor behaving irresponsibly. So many of these stories are compiled, and yet no news report has ever featured a firearm instructor who has behave responsibly. The only logical conclusion, therefore, is that all firearm instructors are irresponsible.

I have only disassembled an XD model firearm, but disassembly of an XD series firearm first requires lifting of the takedown lever, which itself requires drawing back the slide of the firearm. During that action, an individual fully aware of their actions will notice if a loaded magazine is inserted in the firearm.

I nonetheless still point the firearm in a relatively safe direction (away from myself, and away from any walls thin enough for a bullet to easily penetrate) when disassembling my XD model firearm.

Some manufacturers are changing that. Beretta's Nano has a deactivation switch for their striker. You don't need to pull the trigger to disassemble. The S&W Shield doesn't require a trigger pull either.

I wonder if that guy has ever used his firearm to shoot a bad guy or if he is officially in the red on shooting the right person. Further wonder if he realizes that this makes him a bad guy. Logically, anyone can be the bad guy, then. Therefore, gun control. He himself is a walking argument for gun control.

2. double check to make sure gun is unloaded.

3. still act as if it was loaded.

So if a good guy with a gun shoots himself, and thereby becomes a bad guy (with a gun) due to having shot a good guy, does he then immediately become a good guy again, since the "good guy" he shot turned out to be a secret bad guy all along?

The mistake most people make when stripping a Glock is that they rack the slide to remove the chambered round *before* they drop the magazine, not having the presence of mind to understand that they've just chambered another round, and then compound the error by not visually checking the chamber before pulling the trigger and removing the slide.  It's a really stupid thing to do, and I don't understand how people keep doing it.

Glocks and other similar striker-fired pistols are extremely simple to operate in a stressful situation, but they also are *very* unforgiving of mistakes.  I have two of them myself, and am pretty paranoid about looking in the chamber before trying to take them apart.
