    Don`t knock them $20 holsters as I carry mine in a Blackhawk #2. It`s a IWB and works well for me. Can`t always go by price sometimes.

    Gun owner needs to buy a new freaking holster besides paying for the medical bills.

    I think the barber is a stand-up guy for not wanting to press charges.

    I don't think he is a stand-up guy at the moment...

    I bet it was one of those evil "automatic" pistols Sarah is always preaching about. Or else maybe it was one of those new fangled "assault" weapons.

    In all seriousness, I wonder if it was a case of showing someone what kind of firearm they carry.

    If I was the customer, I wouldn't be going in asking for a shave anytime soon.

    Just an FYI on those cheap holsters. I use several pretty expensive holsters for my Glock, depending on what I'm wearing. I think they range in price from $40 to $60. But for my little Taurus TCP, there just aren't a lot of options. I think most people expect to carry it in your pocket, but I'd rather it be on my waistband most of the time. The only holster I've found that fits it properly is a small Uncle Mike's holster. However, I've never had it fall out or even get loose. I could stand on my head and it probably wouldn't fall out.

    I had to click the link and make sure I still have a place to get my haircut. That was at the other end of the state thankfully.

    If it happened as described, the holster is obviously deficient in the retention department.

    They said it was a million dollar wound, but the army must keep that money 'cause I still haven't seen a nickel of that million dollars.

    Likely a more accurate headline (if truth be known):

    Yikes! A Glock in a soft, wrinkled holster like that looks like a ND waiting to happen.

    Yup, another case of a $500 gun in a $5 holster.

    There are a lot of revolvers out there with no transfer bars so its possible. A 9mm is usually automatic but Ruger has made and sold revolvers in 9mm caliber so who knows. Maybe we should just belive the barber.

    Maybe we should accept the fact that we will never know.
