    NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — A firearms instructor in southern Massachusetts has been assigned to other duties after his gun accidentally went off while he was teaching a class on weapons safety.

    Officials say the Glock handgun discharged while Maj. Donald Lamar was demonstrating to Bristol County deputy sheriffs how to safely holster the weapon.

    The bullet ripped a hole in Lamar's pants but missed his leg and foot.

    Sheriff Thomas Hodgson says the officer made a "gross error in judgment" by not emptying the weapon before the class last week.

    Lamar, a certified firearms instructor since 2005, was transferred to another division and will not carry a firearm while the incident is being investigated.

    If it was a 10mm Glock he would have a wooden leg right now.

    holstering a glock has always been a concern because if anything gets caught in the trigger guard when you insert the gun, well, it's gonna go boom. So on one hand the instructor should be more careful. On the other hand, he probably holsters and unholsters a lot, so he's statistically more likely to encounter the situation. But mostly it's his job so he should have been more careful. Unfortunate situation.

    If he was on a higher floor of a multi-story building hundreds of people underneath him would have been killed.
