    OKLAHOMA CITY -- A little target practice was too hot for an Oklahoma woman to handle.

    The woman accidentally shot herself on Wednesday, police said.

    Police said Anna Herrera-Gomez was practicing with a 9 mm gun at the H&H Gun Range in Oklahoma City when a hot shell casing fell down the front of her shirt.

    She jumped as the hot metal touched her skin and reached for her chest. Police said that's when she accidentally shot herself in the leg.

    "Of course, we train for this, but unbeknownst to us, we had a gentlemen on the range who was a trained EMT. (He) took care of it immediately, and even though it was a shooting, it was actually very minimal," said H&H Gun Range owner Miles Hall.

    Hall said the woman was embarrassed more than anything else.

    it probably bounced off the partition or wall. It's happened to me and people I've shot with before.

    she should sue the companys that make the bullet and that made the gun, because there is no warming anywhere that the hot brass could do this when you shoot a gun :(

    hahahah

    I've been nailed by flying brass bouncing off the lane divider countless times. She probably had her cleavage hanging out and it decided to jump in there :mamoru:

    there was one time i was shooting my .45 indoors and caught hot brass right between my forehead and my shooting glasses....it was a few seconds of putting my gun safely down and adjusting my glasses quickly before i managed to free it....hurt like hell and left a blister on my forehead that didnt go away for over a week but at least i know im professional enough to handle it :x:

    I had one get between my glasses and eyelid. I did the same thing (set down weapon, then got the casing out) and it left a pretty mean blister on my eye :wtc:

    Never caught one in the eye, my glasses hug my face pretty tight, have caught one down the shirt quite a few times, always happens if I'm wearing something with a collar but its never caused me to ND.
