The victim, 58, told police he was practicing tactical target shooting, moving from one target to another. The man told police he shot himself in the right thigh with a .45-caliber handgun while moving behind a tree.Who could ever forget Tex Grebner? But, the truth is I haven't seen all that many of these. Maybe they're hiding them among the other negligent discharges, but I would think there would be more accidents among tese silly fantasy-dwellers who practice tactical drills with their fetish items.
Witnesses also reported the shooting was accidental and self-inflicted. The man was taken to a hospital with a wound from a bullet that entered in his thigh and exited behind his knee.
The location of the shooting "appears to be an appropriate site" for target practice, Saginaw County Sheriff's Office Lt. Randy Pfau said.
Maybe the reason is that guys who practice are pretty safe. The ones who don't practice and all-of-a-sudden decide to show the girlfriend how cool the guns is are the dangerous ones.
