I call this mysterious because I don't know how the gun just woke up and decided to fire while holstered.

-Didn't say he touched it, just that he was talking and it fired inside the holster. Maybe it jiggled loose a bit and he rested his arm on it causing it to fire. But what mysterious action caused it to go off on its own?

-The other mystery? The response that these they can happen from time to time while cleaning. Makes it sound like a normal thing.

Would like to know what he was carrying, might explain a lot. But I don't like how the statements elude to this being an inherent by product of carrying a handgun.

This is probably a case of negligence, but Taurus was plagued with problems on certain pistols recently:

Very well could have been a Glock in a Serpa. We all know about Glocks and Serpas. I found UT PD policy for weapons and they do carry Glocks in either Safariland II/III or Serpa Level III. Granted, this was from 2011 so unknown if it's been updated due to the increase of issues with Serpas.

Hmm, that's kind of suspicious. That said, Gig 'em!! Class of '97. Your title gave it away.

Well heck, if that guy grabbed my neck and shook me like that and spoke to ME that way, I'd shoot too! :mrgreen:

That will teach him not to take the bullet out of the shirt pocket. Kidding aside I am glad it was not more serious.

Forum rules prohibit me from saying what came to my mind when I saw "mysterious discharge". :oops:

I handle property and casualty issues country wide and we naturally use all kinds of jargon, lingo, and abbreviations. However, I always use full spelling for Utah. :tiphat:

I thought I was bad, but my Ohio State buddy won't even say or type the word "Michigan". That takes some creative writing in some business cases.

There is a heck of a lot more to that story than what is being told.
Just sayin'...
