A former Marine and current federal agent is suing Sig Sauer for injuries he claims he sustained when his P320 discharged while holstered striking him in the leg as he was at qualifying at a range in New Castle, Delaware, according to Military.com
“Keith Slatowski alleges his substantial injuries were the result of the handgun’s ‘potentially deadly design defects’ that allow it to fire without the user pulling the trigger, according to a news release from Slatowski’s attorneys, Jeffrey Bagnell and Robert Zimmerman.
When Slatowski “placed his hand on the pistol grip to draw it out of his holster, the weapon fired,” according to the lawsuit.
“Slatowski never touched the weapon’s trigger,” the suit alleges. “The bullet struck him in his upper right hip and exited out the back of his lower thigh, causing substantial injury, maceration of tissue, blood loss, and nerve damage.”
