    Accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound at ERGC

    There was an accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound to the lower left leg today during the steel challenge match at Escambia River Gun Club. I believe the gentleman is going to be ok. I just wanted to say how much I appreciated everyone’s efforts to get him help as quickly as possible. A person who’s name I don’t know had a tourniquet on the leg very quickly, which prevented any further blood loss. A cease fire was called, calls were placed to 911, people were placed along the road to guide EMS in, and two deputies from Baldwin county and others assisted in giving care until EMS arrived.

    I’m proud of all involved. Accidents happen, and shooters carrying personally owned TQs and other med gear, and being trained in their use, saved the day.

    I hope all our Members are in good health and the wounded gentlemen makes a full recovery. There's always a lesson learned with NDs, unfortunately most lessons are remedial.

    Glad to hear there were people who had an idea of what to do and how to handle the situation. Hope the shooter mends well and walks away with only the experience.

    Wow! bad thing but a good thing everyone worked together towards the favorable outcome. Exactly what I would have expected from our fellow shooters.

    Sorry to hear of this and hope there is a full recovery.

    Drawing and holstering a loaded firearm is a dangerous thing to do. Especially if you are in a hurry when you do it. No details have been given if this was a mechanical failure or a shooter failure.
    When training or competing it is better to go a little slower to do these operations with skill even if you lose a little time doing so.
    I was at one IDPA event there a few years ago and a fellow had a defective safety on a copy of a browning HiPower pistol. It discharged in his holster, but fortunately he was not shot. That certainly scared the dickens out of him.
