You are right all around. Her finger is black and blue. I was so scared and felt so bad.
As for the gun, I hate to send it back to Glock because it is an ES Gen 1. I have owned it since about 87. Just a small crack in the frame. Maybe just retire it and go Gen 4.
She wants to get an LCR now. Can't blame her I guess. She is a trooper, she still wanted to shoot, go figure.
Thanks for the reply.
P.S. Could my LoneWolff barrel have helped in this situation? I was using my original.
