KS – SHOOTING SPORTS – Cowtown gunfight under review after accidental shooting (VIDEO)

An internal review is underway into how a Cowtown gun fighter was hurt in an accidental shooting over the weekend. Several gunfighters were shooting at each other during a historic re-enactment gunfight at Wichita’s Old Cowtown Museum Friday, Sept. 18. The participants were using real firearms, but they were supposed to be loaded with blank bullets. The scene changed from acting to real life just after 9 p.m., when one of the gunfighters was shot. The 24-year-old man was taken to a hospital in serious condition, and he is expected to survive. Police did not specify whether the man was shot with a real bullet or with a blank, only that he was shot in his upper body. Tom Clark participated as a gunfighter in Old Abilene Town from 1988 to 1991. He said the crew would always take steps to keep each other safe. “Typically, we’d check each other and make sure everybody had cleared their guns, and they were, in fact, loading blanks back into it,” Clark said. He said blanks can still be dangerous, even at a distance, if debris falls in the barrel.  [full article]
