NEW BEDFORD, Mass. - A firearms instructor in southern Massachusetts has been assigned to other duties after his gun accidentally went off while he was teaching a class on weapons safety. Officials say the Glock handgun discharged while Maj. Donald Lamar was demonstrating to Bristol County deputy sheriffs how to safely holster the weapon.

The bullet ripped a hole in Lamar's pants but missed his leg and foot.

Sheriff Thomas Hodgson says the officer made a "gross error in judgment" by not emptying the weapon before the class last week.

Lamar, a certified firearms instructor since 2005, was transferred to another division and will not carry a firearm while the incident is being investigated.

If this is a demo of how to safely holster the weapon I would hate to see a demo on the unsafe holstering of a weapon.
 
It was "safe". The guy ripped his pants, but wasn't injured. If it were "unsafe", then he would have had an extra hole or two in him. :wink:

He must not have had the safety on :D .

I know accidents happen, but I am at a lose to understand how instructors can be this negligent.

the safe part what the fact that the bullet missed his leg and foot.

I believe the only safety a glock has is on the trigger itself... gee wonder where his finger was?
 
Lamar...will not carry a firearm while the incident is being investigated.
The Bristol County Sheriff's Office has recently released a photo of Maj. Lamar's new sidearm that he will be carrying... :bigsmile:
