Uh oh… And she's an attorney!
Given that it's a newspaper report (usual veracity disclaimer), several points suggest themselves:Dean was wielding a 10mm Glock Model 29 automatic handgun, which is popular with both men and women, according to Lethal Force shooting instructor Massad Ayoob. She was among five students involved in a five-day firearms course.
Ayoob described Dean as a "very skillful and confident gun handler." He said she was using a holster that was not right for the gun and said that it was not immediately obvious to the instructor prior to the accident.
- With only five students, "the instructor" was undoubtedly Mas.[/*:17fbgura]
- "…a holster that was not right for the gun," identified as a Glock, would likely be an Uncle Mike's, or something similar with one of those peripatetic retention snap straps.[/*:17fbgura]
- I never knew that the "Glock Model 29 automatic handgun … is popular with both men and women." I shall inform Mark Gibson immediately.[/*:17fbgura]
- I fearlessly predict that this event will be the subject of at least two columns in gunzines on the newsstand before Christmas.[/*:17fbgura]
