    Man practicing a quick draw shoots himself in leg


    BARRE, Vt. (AP) -- Police say a man was recovering from a gunshot wound after he shot himself in the leg with a handgun while practicing a quick draw. Police said a bullet from a revolver entered the 61-year-old man's leg just below the left knee and lodged in his foot.

    Police say when rescue crews arrived at about 7 p.m. Tuesday they found the man sitting on the sidewalk near his home.

    Police said the man was in stable condition.

    I have a set of 14 mags that are my designated practice mags.

    I remove the followers and springs out of and add weight to simulate a loaded mag for dry fire practice.

    LOL, I wish bro. I need to get that trained out of me. Until then feel free to haggle me about it. That's a .5 second every reload I'm adding every time I can't afford to give up.
