A police officer in Glasgow, Kentucky is suing Barren Outdoors. The employee handed him a loaded gun, which he failed to check, and he blew off part of his left index finger.
Go ahead and laugh: he's going to win.
Note to gun store customers: putting your hand over the muzzle won't stop a bullet and it doesn't exempt you from Rule #2. Don't point the weapon at anything you can't pay for. Nobody wants to hear, "it's unloaded." I've lost count of how many times that phrase has turned out to be a lie.
Note to gun store employees: clear the gun before handing it to a customer because the customer won't check it. Seriously, 87.4% just of them just start dry-firing away with wild abandon as soon as they've got their sweaty mitts on it.
Note to gun store owners: you can and will be sued for this. Comparative negligence might mitigate the damages, but you're going to have some of the liability. You can quote Rule #1 to a jury until you're blue in the face. It won't help. It's not normal practice to hand someone a loaded gun.
There were many mistakes in this situation, but the chain of events began with the employee failing to take his responsibilities seriously. It just takes one lapse.
