Proper holster solves the problem - no need for a thumb safety.
According to Darwin’s theory it will be decided in the long run.

I surely hope his Sheriff made him go through some firearm safety classes and get it through to him that Safety is #1, and that's why we carry a gun to begin with, for our safety, and others around us. However, in the wrong hands, it can jeopardize yours and everybody else's safety. There is a thin line between the two, and WE are the deciding factor whether our loved ones are being protected or are in danger. I hope everybody learns from this mans mistake, and I thank God that it wasn't worse. :angel:

[quote="cultzombie"]After reading the story, my question is: where did the bullet go?

"Neither the boy nor the three adults required medical treatment." ... "The restaurant floor wasn’t damaged, nor was any other property."

So the boy got a fragment in the foot, grandad got some fragments in the lower leg, the two ladies got fragments enough to make some welts and a minor cut, but no medical treatment for any of them beyond an on-site patch-up by the EMT. And neither the floor itself nor any other property is damaged. How's that even possible?

Here's one scenario:

Hollowpoint round impacting tile over concrete floor at close to 90 degrees. Round shatters, throws fragments into nearby legs, but leaves no damage on hard floor.
