There is video of the incident. Holsterless carry in small of back + doing a backflip = gun on dance floor. Hurriedly picking gun up + finger inside trigger guard = bullet in someone's leg.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

If he loses his job with the FBI he could always audition for America's Got Talent. I can't wait to hear what Simon would say about his dancing.

I'm not sure that he's holster-less. I can't completely see clearly in the video (this one can be cranked up to 720 HD and the lighting/angle is better, but it's still not great - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueO1mFz ... r_embedded), but it seems to me that there may be a holster.

Regardless of whether there is a holster or not, and irrespective of carry position/clocking, this is just awful equipment maintenance, selection and/or knowledge/training on the behalf of the supposed FBI Agent: if the gun can come out without an intentional drawstroke under physical activity, then what are the chances it will come out under a physical violent confrontation?

And I feel that -MUST- Brian D.'s excellent advice, here:

Brian D. wrote:Hurriedly picking gun up + finger inside trigger guard = bullet in someone's leg.


Had this supposed Agent just calmed down and picked up the gun properly, there would never have been the unintentional and negligent discharge.

Sure, the event is still embarrassing, but at least it would have been, overall, somewhat "safe" for all involved, and his embarrassment would not have involved shooting an innocent bystander with his spastic and ill-trained (re)action(s).

Modern duty/defensive handguns are designed and made to be drop-safe, as the clattering of his sidearm on the dance-floor readily demonstrated. This is also why at every competition and training event we are reminded that should the gun come out of the shooter's hand (for any reason), to just let it fall. Trying to grab the firearm to catch it in mid-air runs the risk of one or more of our fingers entering the trigger guard and subsequently discharging the weapon. The same goes for taking a moment to calmly and safely pick up the weapon thereafter.

I can't make up my mind about what is more appalling in the series of actions that led up to the ND. However, the fact that he walked away after shooting a patron in the leg is so disgusting that I can't think of the words to describe it.

By the looks of his stupidity and callousness, I would say he might be related to Lon Horiuchi.

Nothing unintentional about it. Pure negligence. :evil: To then just holster the firearm and walked away?!?!?! He needs to be behind bars.

Yeah, I'm not quick to judge these types of case (or, at least, I try not to be quick to judge), but the conclusion here appears to be pretty straightforward and obvious. He failed to have his firearm properly secured and (more importantly) he quite obviously fingered the trigger when he picked it up. Nothing here but 100% negligence.

DENVER – An FBI agent whose gun appeared to accidentally fire in a video showing him dancing at a Denver nightclub and doing a back flip before dropping the weapon has been booked into jail. Chase Bishop, who is based in the bureau's Washington Field Office, was charged Tuesday with one count of second-degree assault, the Denver District Attorney's office said.

I just saw this on GMA as well. He may be facing more charges as his blood is analyzed to see if he had been drinking at the time.

A little late for blood testing but maybe they find some other drug.

I'm sure if there were blood tests, it was within hours, not days later. Also pretty sure the results have been back for days, just not released, while the investigation is ongoing.

I dunno ... around here all the blood tests are done by the medical examiner's office and there's a 6-8 week backlog on priority cases, upwards of 12 for more routine matters. This is a state criminal investigation, not federal.

As sensational as this incident is it's probably in the low priority category. We know what happened. We know who the perpetrator is and we know who the victim is. Nobody's dead and nobody's going on trial in the next 30 days.
Never ask if you can carry at a non-posted place, but always ask why you cannot at one that is!
Just because they offer call ahead seating doesn't mean you call ahead for carry permission.

He's just another agent in the deep state. Remember that the Socialist Democrats only want people like this to carry guns.
