I bet it was a Glock :-)

A Charlotte police officer "accidentally" fired his gun into the ground during a foot chase, and apparently lied about it. However, that's not the big story in my book.

Police now say the only person who fired was Officer Parker, who has been with CMPD since 2001 and is assigned to the Metro Division. He fired his gun into the ground while attempting to draw it from holster, police said.

Rule 3: Keep your finger off the trigger until the sights are on the target.

It's also why I still like some kind of manual safety on a gun, or at least a really long double action trigger. It's hard to take that "monkey grab" thing out of the equation, no matter how much training you do.

And no, I don't know if CMPD actually carries Glocks, but if I were a betting man, it's how I'd play my money.
