    I had to laugh to myself when I read where the barbershop was located! I lived on the east side of Cleveland in 1960 for a year before joining the Army, and lived in Kent 1964-1977, where I went to college after getting discharged in 1964. For those of you from outside northern Ohio, Parma, which is on the west side of Cleveland, was the "butt" (pun intended) of numerous jokes back in the day. There was a Friday night horror movie on one of the Cleveland TV stations where the commentators, Hoolihan and "Big Chuck" were constantly cracking jokes about Kielbasa and Parma. They even had a skit about the "Kielbasa Kid". The residents of Parma were constantly derided as not being the brightest residents in the greater Cleveland metropolitan area. While these accusations were undoubtedly unfounded (we must be politically correct now), reading the story about a barber from Parma getting shot in the butt by a customer who drops his gun brought all these forgotten memories flooding back to the forefront of my mind!

    At any rate, I tend to believe the patron probably pulled his gun out to show it off when an accidental discharge resulted. I'm not buying that it just "fell out of the holster and went off all by itself"!!!!

    Especially not in Parma!!!

    You think/estimate that holster is worth $5? Hey man, I've got some nice homes in Detroit to sell you...

    Never had my EDC fall out of my holster, even when I'm shaking it upside down!

    No, I don't think it's worth even 50 cents. That was my estimate of what he PAID for it. Rereading the original post with the photo, he paid 10 DOLLARS for it; he got ripped off. :)

    Sounds like he just "took a little off the back"

    I wonder if the customer left a tip?
