This is one of those stories that most people (including me) would be inclined to disbelieve if it wasn't for the fact that there were apparently some good-quality witnesses to the situation who were uninvolved and have no particular reason to lie about it.

An unnamed Fed was at the Orlando International Airport a day or two ago. He was approaching a check point and unslung his shouldered bag. The shoulder strap caught his weapon and pulled it out of his holster. (No retention strap I suppose.) He made a grab for the gun, did grab it, the weapon discharged and then went along it's merry way. The Fed was shot in the foot.

Assuming this went down as presented and assuming the unsecure holster was within policy I would put this down as a legit accidental discharge.
