Sounds Like A Glock Was Involved

In Alaska, a firefighter who was cleaning a gun after a morning at the shooting range accidentally shot a co-worker, killing him.

Police say 27-year-old Elliott Taylor and a friend had just returned from shooting and were cleaning their weapons Tuesday evening when the friend's gun fired through his hand and hit Taylor in the lower abdomen.

Sounds like a Glock was the gun involved, since field-stripping involves pulling the trigger on it. Guy probably had the take-down lever in his left hand and pulled the trigger with his right as part of field-stripping, and there was still a round in the chamber. Violation of rules 1, 2, and 4 of Jeff Cooper's gun safety rules.

It might have been a Glock, but it also could have been any semi auto without a magazine safety. Safety or not it was a case of piss poor firearm handling. Sadly, it seems that the shooter never learned any of the four rules.
