My agency was just in the very begining stages of issuing M/P to admin personal. Recently it was brought to our attention that if a shooter stages the trigger,then decides not to fire, the gun can still discharge. Upon reading the owners manual there is a paragraph that states exactly this could happen. I see this as a major issue. If an officer decides to fire, then the situation changes and the officer decides not to fire, the gun could still discharge. A agency near us had this exact situation happen. The suspect pointed a weapon at the officer, the officer drew his weapon and started to pull the trigger, when the suspect dropped his gun.The officer let off of the trigger and the suspect was taken into custody.
