I don't see the flashbang, bra holster as being any more dangerous than many other types of carry. the slide and trigger is completely covered by the holster. There is a strap to attach the flashbang to the bra in the center, but my understanding is the bottom of the bra is lifted and the holster tucked under the bottom of the bra, the holster does not dangle by the strap. the firearm should be IN the holster when the holster is placed on the body, a Flashbang is not something you would typically reholster in while it's being worn. the holster itself is a formed Kydex clamshell that the firearm is inserted into, you can draw the pistol by pulling directly down out of the holster, or to the side.

If she was looking down the muzzle, her finger had to be on the trigger, so the firearm could not have been in the holster at the time of this incident. She may have been trying to reholster the firearm while wearing the holster, which imho is a bad idea.

My wife has a flashbang she carries with, I've already forwarded the article to her.

That's pretty much what I was thinking - that this pretty much had to be software problems.
