Not saying it did not happen the way as described...but I find it hard for said pin to back out far enough for it to catch on the holster just because of the trigger guard configuration. I mean talk about the perfect storm. Seems just about impossible. Also he must have had a holster made out of cloth not leather or kydex to catch said pin if it really happened. Where the pin is located he had to be pushing hard to make it discharge just because of leverage of pin location. Honestly sounds like operator error to me and trying to save face. However just glad he is going to recover regardless how it happened.
