Negligence. It can happen to anyone, but a lot less likely to those who have been properly trained.


@mephisto
This just goes to show that he really should have been armed with another gun, that would shoot the errant bullet out of mid-air. He may even want to have a tertiary gun to shoot a possible second errant bullet shot out of is secondary weapon.


This wouldn’t have happened had he been armed…oh, wait a minute.
