Is it true that the lock goes through the trigger well? If this is the case, then a careless adjustment of the holster could cause the trigger to fire. This might have been the case. If so, TSA should take part of the blame for unsafe weapon handling procedures.

Sorry, this is starting to get into FFDO-specific procedures and is something we should not discuss on an open forum. I am closing this thread.
