The range operators posted a video about what happened.  I found this interesting as it prevented the ever prevalant arm chair quarterbacks from jumping all over the range:

One of the guys I work with and I went to the range, talked to the range-master he told us the guy was appendix carrying a glock 19 and attempted to re-holster with his finger on the trigger, took out his right testicle in the process.  My stomach still hurts from hearing that.

I thought they said he missed his package.

Either way - it'd be WAY too close for me!

Rule of thumb.... finger must not be on the trigger unless ready to shoot!
