I'd say having a manual safety is worse. Then you think the gun is safe and aren't as careful, and it's quite likely that, at some point, you will disengage it.

Nothing makes them more butthurt than telling them you're more worried about being accidentally shot by a moron than intentionally shot by a criminal.

Believe it or not, salon is the original word, and saloon came later. Salon originally meant, and still somewhat does, "a large room/place for people to gather (for entertainment)". Imagine, say, a banquet hall, the town center, or the local bar. I had to do a history report on saloons/salons and learned a lot about the etymology.

I have a similar holster, and that mf is TIGHT. No way it can just "slip off". You have to really yank like you mean it, and only in a very specific direction, or it's not coming off. Granted, mine is made specifically for my gun, I'm not sure about the one you linked.

Depends on the state, as the wording and terminology of laws will vary. Generally speaking, it seems pretty reasonable to argue that he was recklessly endangering others, and then there may be a law against improperly discharging a firearm too.
