Please don't let this happen to you. This individual in the pictured link (photo is graphic) had finished cleaning his XD40, and then noticed a mar on the finish. He then only dropped the loaded magazine out of the XD, and then fixed the mar, and then dry fired his XD.

Please don't let this happen to you.

that's one of the things i really dis-like about the glock---ya have to pull the trigger to dis-assemble.........

a long time back, i worked a shootin' where the guy was cleanin' his glock 21----the bullet came out out his butt cheek..........he survived as it missed most of the plumbing but he was sure embarrassed.......

The rule about gun safety is keep your finger off the trigger.

With a Glock or any striker firing device SA/DA semi auto.

1) drop the mag out first.
2) pull slide back to slide lock.
3) make sure chamber is empty.
4) now disassemble slide from frame as the instructions indicate.

I've read stories about not following the steps as indicated, and the results were AD's or ND's depending on the situation. But one thing is certain, you ALWAYS believe a gun is loaded until that chamber is checked. The trigger is not to be touched until that weapon has been cleared and made safe.

Deputy, you and I as well as others are still here because we follow Gun Safety Rules.

I gotta ask how he shot off his right thumb and hit himself in his left palm? Are we sure this was a firearms accident?

Kim, you're sharper than me...we're being jerked around....again.....unless the damage on the left hand was done by the slide.....the damage on the right hand doesn't show that the thumb is gone...I can fold mine under like that.....I smell a rat....

Sheepdog,
See above. I need to learn to look at the whole picture. As a parachutist, you'd think I would learn not to jump to conclusions.
