1911's are easy. No problems. I contacted black hawk and they said there was a mix up on production and the holsters were to be recalled but they hoped no one would notice. That's how its going so far.

Unbelievably in denial

Will you just give it up. You are wrong. On the plus side I don't think you purposely endangered anyone. On the minus you are simply an idiot. That doesn't make you a bad person just someone who shouldn't run with scissors. Why did you even post here. Did you think everyone would rally around the cause of unsafe gun handling and band together to blame it on the holster maker. Even if the gun really did go off without your finger on the trigger. Which science proves it did not. You pointed a gun with bullets in it in an unsafe direction.
No excuse
The bullet should have gone into the floor or an otherwise safe direction if you practiced safe gun handling
Let me know which jail you are in. I'll put some money in your kitty so you can buy Leroy a chocolate

The floor isn't safe here I dam near got it to point at the ceiling. It went through the wall about a foot short of the ceiling. Floor is a bad idea, compared to the wall, its thinner and no padding or insulation. That's why I always try to face outside and get it up before. I more then likely did touch the trigger just don't remember much. Just the sound. I'm looking at a thousand dollar fine plus repairs. Neighbor can't sue its up to the building owner. Black hawk sent me a check reimbursement for a different holster. Not suppose to mention it,whatever. I ain't blaming the pistol, some of you just assumed I was. Accidents happen. For all of you who think your so perfect like I said before you must save a lot of money not having to buy toilet paper. End

Fixed it for ya.

Keep your finger well clear of the trigger next time. Don't even put your finger in the trigger guard. Focus on it. Never let your attention stray even for a second.

Learn how guns function. All guns. If you'd done that before you loaded and cocked that Colt, you'd have left the hammer down and upon discovering that the holster strap wouldn't fasten unless the hammer was cocked...you'd have either left it unfastened, or you'd have kept it out of the holster...or you'd have carried it home empty.

You got very lucky on the fines.

You also got lucky on the court order being rescinded and getting your guns back.
Go play the lottery. It's your day.

Take the time and effort to learn about guns. Learn all you can. Don't depend on the internet commandos for the correct answers.

Don't load your guns until you're in a place that is safe to have loaded guns in, because right now, you're not quite up to speed.

Cheers...bitch.

I've tried to avoid being the lecturing parent in this thread but after reading the arrogance and ignorance of your replies Tyler I need to say a few things…as you say, Tyler, suck it.

Rule Number One - Finger off the trigger unless shooting.

The number of firearms I own is well north of 100 but less then 400. With a two to one (give or take) ratio of handguns to long guns I have holsters for almost all of them. The only handgun holsters I own or have ever seen for that matter, that require the hammer to be cocked and locked and secured by a snap strap are for the 1911 style pistol.

I've been shooting firearms for more then 50 years now; trained and carried a 1911A1 (that was older then I) conducting Law Enforcement Boardings for the Coast Guard and in my current job as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer carry a handgun every day at work and off-duty. Every time I've pulled the trigger on one of my loaded guns they have gone off. Including the .45 acp round that went through my bedroom door and wall, the kitchen wall and ceiling, and lodging in a rafter of my roof.

Only one gun I've ever owned has fired all by itself; that was a Colt 1908M .380 semi-auto. However it was my fault (as was the .45); I did a complete bare frame disassembly of the gun for a detailed cleaning, reassembled the gun, and after performing the safety checks (which the gun passed with flying colors) did I put a magazine in the gun and chambered a round. Rule #2 (in some lists #3) keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction…when I released the slide my finger was no where near the trigger and the muzzle was pointed away from me and my dog; it was pointed at my mattress. Good thing; the gun tripled; that's right, three shots before I was able to stop the madness. A purely hellish situation and feeling. I was able to account for all three bullets; they never left the house after passing through the mattress and box springs - an eyeopener regarding the power of a .380 round nose jacketed bullet.

Regardless of why it happened it was my responsibility; I owned it; no one to blame but me. When I reassembled the gun there were two ways the hammer could be installed - and I installed it the wrong way, missing the sear notch, when tension was created by chambering a round, well I was lucky that it didn't dump all 6 rounds in the magazine.

On a related matter I "broke" a $1.5 Million dollar Mobile X-Ray Truck at work one night - my fault - I did everything I could do to get a repair technician out at first light, and then notified the supervisor of everything I had done. He said "Feces occurs" (sh!t happens). That was the last I heard of it.

I guess I will put it in simple terms for you Tyler - it wasn't the holster or the gun; it was you. You had a hammer cocked in a holster that didn't need to be it that condition; and then you negligently pulled the trigger. You are damned lucky your neighbor (or another neighbor) didn't get shot nor did their 6 month old baby, sleeping in the bedroom next to your apartment, did not get shot due to your negligence.

You asked for help in your first post yet even there you suggested a faulty sear. Grow a pair of man testicles and admit that you were at fault; and follow the advice you were given.

You are damned lucky you got off with

Lucky you weren't charged with Negligent Homicide or some felony; before you get your gun(s) back, do yourself and others a big favor - got take a quality firearms safety training course or two and learn how to carry a gun. More importantly - learn how to take responsibility for your actions and how to take constructive criticism - you more then got some excellent advice in response to your questions; and then you insult everyone who helped you. Grow up.
