    Ya' need a few more details for the first paragraph and the set up for the story.
    (maybe tie in to this situation ... or maybe your details will better)

    LOL We were dating for awhile. He was an incredible over-achiever type-A sort who was accepted into IAB while we were going out. Pretty amazing since he had a deceased father who was brutal and had mob connections thru his sanitation job....whom he grew up with. *and the plot thickens*

    I keep hearing a lot of people talking about police being highly trained. If only that were true. Reality is the vast majority of cops are no where near highly trained with a ton of departments only requiring their officers shoot only once or twice a year. Highly trained that isn't.

    In my minds ear, I hear your almost sultry narration ..... and I wait...... and wait........for the rest of the story.

    This has gotta' be good... remember, dictation is your friend .. it prevents carpel finger syndrome..

    This is tougher than a Paul Harvey epilog..

    It may be problematic when looking across all the departments out there, but it is not unreasonable to expect law enforcement to have a level of training with the tools they have over the general populace. Just as it is not unreasonable to expect the fire department to have a level of training with the tools they have over the general populace.

    Our issue as it applies to this story of a police chief accidentally shooting his sleeping wife, is we do not have enough information yet for us to point to training (or lack thereof) being the factor we should be considering.

    Now Glocks are kind of known for unintentional discharges. Still, sliding one across a bed sheet should not normally set it off.
    Maybe the trigger got caught with a pillow or somebody's toe... either way, aren't Glocks supposed to be always holstered with the trigger guard protected? Thats what the Glock factory says.

    Basic rule: never point the muzzle of a gun at anything you dont want to destroy.
