Holster Shoots Gun

The lamestream media told you:

The investigation into the cause of a gunshot on the flight deck of a US Airways plane is ongoing, will look at every possible facet of the incident, and may take a while.

"This is an extremely safe and reliable weapon, " said Greg Alter of the Federal Air Marshal Service. "It's not going to discharge on its own, is the bottom line."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Someone needs to tell the expert quoted above by Mitch Weiss of the AP, and Weiss too who failed to question the expert, that no gun of any kind discharges on its own. If that's where the investigation is going, taxpayers can brace for another multi-million dollar, 300-page study that is a waste of slain trees.

Saving taxpayers and government experts the time, everyone with a web connection has already seen my friend Paul Huebl's video of the likely cause -- hopelessly faulty design by bureaucrats doing everything they can to scuttle and impede the program.

Here's the problem -- the lock and holster design, required by TSA, and the rules for using it, are an accident waiting to happen. Here's Paul (of in Calif. with the FFDO rig, showing how it can fire when the lock is attached. Congrats, Paul, on the zillions of hits your simple video has garnered.

You can buy this holster yourself:
"F.D.O. with lock hole", model #31L
