Would've liked for the writer to have id'ed the gun.
For example if it was a Glock, the reason for the discharge might well have been different than if it were a S&W.
As noted earlier, these things 'just don't happen'. Luckily for us all, a jillion law enforcement officers spend their entire careers without accidental discharges of their weapons.
There was a failure here. It is important that the root cause be determined and mitigated for this individual as well as possibly many other officers.

Well, it's too bad it's wasn't aimed at his head. But this was still a funny story.

Isn't it almost impossible to shoot yourself in the back?
Do they sell fish in that market? Cause this story smells.

And so, it's back to the drawing board.

Version 1 of his 'Butt Crack Holster' proved to have a critical flaw.
