Had an associate of mine do almost the same thing with a Springfield XD 40, except his round went through a mattress and through his floorboards into the apartment below him. No bueno.

One of the reasons I went with a M&P, just take that trigger out of the disassembly equation.

Doesn't the Glock have to be racked to use the take down lever
Same as the M&P

Yes, but with the M&P you can just slide the sear disconnect down to remove the slide, then you won't have to pull the trigger.

Now if you're competent you should know you don't have a round in the chamber before you pull the trigger, but as you can see not everyone is.

If they were trainers weren't they watching the operator

If the slide was racked then any round should have been ejected and the slide remain open

Yep. Unless they had a mag in and dropped it after racking it (sounds crazy but people are stupid).

This is incorrect. I just tried removing the slide on my wifes Glock and you do not have to rack the slide to remove it. You do have to slightly bring it back then forward, but only a few millimeters. I didn't even have to pull the trigger for it to come off.

You are correct With the S&W the slide has to be racked back for the take down lever to work
For the Glock as you state it doesn't have to be racked

Kinda drives home the point of the phrase:

My dad told of a guy in his unit accidentally killing himself in WW2 italy, when they were coming off the line into a resting area set up in an abandoned church. In clearing his 1911, the guy racked the slide and then dropped the magazine. He was playing around & pointed the gun at his own head when he dropped the hammer. His war ended there.

I'm all for making things safer if it can be done without sacrificing function, and the M&P's sear deactivation lever does that. Kudos to them.

I'm also a fan of treating all guns as loaded, respecting dangerous implements (whether guns, backhoes, welders or chainsaws), and always being sure of your backstop. I can't help but suspect that if the guy was pointing the gun at his own hand, he was also being cavalier about his backstop. So he violated multiple rules of firearm safety and it led to an injury.

Not really a surprise. If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes. Can't say I've never had an ND, but I can say that it wasn't the gun's fault when I did.

My SD9VE slide comes off exactly like a Glock's. There is no sear disconnect. Its the one part of that gun's design that kinda worries me. Its otherwise a great gun.
