Mistakes happen, but when they happen during a gun safety class, they can be pretty funny:
A woman taking an advanced handgun class accidentally shot herself during a training session.Wow, that's some real advanced training, right there. Perhaps this guy was the instructor?
Michelle S. Cox, 50, of Alexandria, Va., shot herself in her upper left thigh with a 9mm semiautomatic handgun. Cox was taken to a local hospital after last week's accident at a gun range in Fort Spring. Her condition was not immediately available but Greenbrier County sheriff's Deputy Lt. B. E. Hosey said the injury was not life threatening.
Hosey said Cox had pointed the gun at her body and had her finger on the trigger, a violation of several safety rules. But he said the shooting was accidental and no charges will be filed.
Yes. That's a DEA agent. In a room full of people, including kids. Your tax dollars at work!
