How sad.


"LAREDO - Investigators are looking into what caused a Border Patrol agent's weapon to discharge killing his brother.

Police say it happened in South Central Laredo. The victim, an 18-year-old man, was shot once in the back with the agent's service weapon."

** according to it, the Agent fumbled with his gun and it started to drop and he grabbed for it. His brother was 18 years old.

I understand they use HKP2000 pistols in .40 S&W.

Did he carry it cocked-n-locked? Or do they use DAO?

Accidently killing my brother just before Christmas would, I don't know, might push me over the edge. My heart goes out to the family members.

So guys, let it drop if it's a modern drop safe pistol. The finsh of the gun isn't worth a life. If it starts to drop... let it drop!
