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.
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.

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):
Ohio Barber Shot in Leg While Customer is Showing Off His Handgun
That barber must of had one thick wallet to slow an FMJ fired at close range to have stopped in the gluteous.
Glock 34 9mm
Glock 36 .45acp
S&W 642-2 .38 +P
Ruger Mark ii 22/45
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.
