A shooter on the line ND,ed and put a round compltley through his thigh tonight at Shooters, Medics, ambulance and a helicopter the whole show.

He should be OK but he'll be sore when the drugs wear off.

it brings up a good point though...the macabre in me is wondering what kind of gun he did this with....
Link Posted: 3/19/2006 6:06:46 AM EDT
I have seen and barked at some unsafe gun handling both there and at NRA. Damn,but I hate indoor ranges.

It was a 40 cal, probably ball ammo from the range since the exit wound was not to scary, I did not ask him what gun it was at the time he was fixated on not dying and the medic was stuffing him with gauz on the floor. I did not really look at the gun someone secured it and made it safe and handed it to the OIC,

He was an LEO but not sure what dept or agency.

Was nice having one of the local SWAT medics in the lane next door doing some plinking, I dont think he got to shoot 10 rounds before he became occupied with the GSV

No.

But I'm am interested in the type of pistol he used when he had this ND.

He was practicing drawing from a holster so I wonder if he was drawing the gun or reholstering when this happened.

I wonder if this ND is the same event described over on Packing.org But he is highly trained....
If it is sounds like he may have been the victim of his own poor adherence to the rules of gun safety.

I arrived shortly after the incident. I am a volunteer at Shooters (I run the USPSA program). Everything you wrote agrees 100% with what I was told by the staff. Again, I was told that the person was apparently an active duty LEO. I was also told that he is a veteran who has served our country in combat in Afganistan (for which I am grateful to him - if that turns out to be true). I was also told that the ammunition was FMJ - which was fortunate. From what I was told, the bullet entered his thigh and exited near "the twins" - but did not strike them nor did it hit a major artery. It apparently happened in conjunction with practicing a draw - although it is not known to me whether he was drawing or re-holstering.

As to the "how" - well I think that we are going to have to let that one go since everything short of a reply from the shooter would be speculation.

It is clear to me that this was not a matter of ignorance by the shooter. Our law enforcement personal and our military personel hold themselves out to be trained experts in the safe use of firearms. It appears that this person made a mistake.

Again, without a report from the guy in question, there is nothing else to see here folks, lets move along.

Regards,

D.C. Johnson

Sorta sounds like the same incident. Unfortunately, the poster gives no geographical info at all.

If the injured shooter was in fact a “Federal Reserve Officer”, he is basically a security guard - not an LEO.

And I’m thinking some of those guys are actually contract workers, not government employees.

I believe here in the DC area they carry .40 S&W Sigmas (which with it's 12 pound or so trigger pull are apparently pretty hard to get to go off even when you want them to!).

Ouch. Hope this person is alright. I've practiced at Shooters from time-to-time and have been most impressed with the clientel. Each time I was there the vast majority of shooters were federal LEO and military. It would surprise me if this unfortunate incident happened due to careless handling, but stranger things have happened. MJD

My best wishes for a speedy recovery.

If the guy was a FED. worker, then he is a federal police officer.hug.gif
