    I don't get it. Why do ordinarily intelligent people do stupid stuff?
    I went through a lot of time and expense to get my CPL, why risk losing it by carrying where it's not allowed and even worse the risk of a ND?

    Amazing. Glad the gal wasn't hurt. First off, it sounds like he isn't aware of his states law (or just plain ignored them) by carrying into a bar. And second, it sounds like his gun was laying lose in a pocket without any sort of holster. Not a good idea from my point of view. I'm happy we dont have restrictions on carrying in a bar or anywhere they sell liquor.

    Good thing it was a '.32'

    Mmmmm, don't need one of those stupid holsters, eh?

    Oh well, he won't have to worry about needing holsters EVER again anyway.

    Can you say, "Bye-bye permit"?

    Carry into a bar (which is unlawful per state law) AND carry of a firearm in an unsafe manner (no holster!) AND improper storage of a firearm (off body in a coat pocket!) AND all this while at said bar drinking alcohol.

    All kinds of stupid.

    Well said. Stupid all around. Even a $5 cheapo vinyl slip holster would have prevented this. And why was the slide back? Can't figure that one out.

    No wait! I've seen plenty of women "stand by her man" for way worse.

    Glad the woman is ok though.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    She'll likely stick around, but duck-n-cover every time her man decides to put his coat on.
    Amazing how 1 stupid decision can spiral into all that. Had he just left the gun locked in the car, as is called out in OH LAW, he wouldn't have shot up his girl's Blackberry. Instead, he's in serious trouble AND, God forbid he marries this girl, he'll have to hear that "remember the time you shot me in Frickers" story for the rest of his life. That should be punishment enough.

    "Bullet-stopping BlackBerry saves woman at local Fricker's", from
    Friday, Feb. 12, 2010 issue of the Dayton Daily News:

    By Steve Bennish, Staff Writer
    Updated 1:50 AM Friday, February 12, 2010
    BUTLER TWP., Montgomery County — A woman’s BlackBerry cell phone saved her from serious harm after her boyfriend’s concealed handgun discharged inside a restaurant.

    The incident occurred about 11 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 6, in Fricker’s on Miller Lane, said Butler Twp. police Capt. Carl Bush.

    The gun owner, Anthony J. Holtvogt, 24, of Kettering holds a concealed carry permit for the firearm.

    He faces one charge of possession of a firearm in a liquor permit premises. The third-degree felony is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

    Bush said Holtvogt, his girlfriend, 22, and other friends were enjoying beers at Fricker’s, 6834 Miller Lane. The girlfriend lives in Butler Twp.

    When they prepared to leave, Holtvogt told police, he picked up his coat and began putting it on. The firearm was in the coat pocket.

    The sleeve got caught in the coat, and as Holtvogt reached down, he noticed the slide on the .32-caliber handgun was pulled back. The gun then discharged.

    The slug put a hole through his coat and his girlfriend’s jeans, but struck the BlackBerry in her left pants pocket dead center, Bush said. The bullet caused only bruising, and the woman declined medical treatment, Bush said.

    “The BlackBerry saved her absolutely,” Bush said. “It could have been pretty serious.”

    If Holtvogt is convicted, he faces a mandatory revocation of his concealed carry permit, Bush said.

    The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, which issues the permits, has been notified, Bush said.
