is the title; I tend to think it's more of a "Why police should spend more time training with their sidearms."
I mean, crap, every single screwup he mentions involves something like
The fellow officer failed to do a chamber check before pulling the
trigger as part of the handgun's normal disassembly procedure. When the
gun fired, the bullet went through a gap in Forsyth's body armor.
A rookie officer with his finger on the trigger of his pistol tensed as
he pushed open a stuck door; the added pressure on the trigger caused
his weapon to fire a shot down the stairwell.
which isn't a failure of the tool, it's a failure of the user. Hell, NYPD went to the New York Trigger on their Glocks, which means trigger pressure about that of a double-action revolver*, but if they can't train the idiots to keep their finger off the trigger, they're STILL going to pull the damn thing when they didn't intend to.
And blaming the pistol isn't helping.
*Which then caused various people to yell that "You can't shoot accurately with a trigger like that!" Which surprised the hell out of people who shoot double-action revolvers quite well.
