I've done practice draws before, but the only time I do it with the gun loaded is at the range.
Too bad he can't be put in jail purely for outright stupidity.
MESA, AZ -- A man practicing with his handgun in a hotel room shot his girlfriend while she slept.
Mesa Police say 21 year-old Joseph Simpson was practicing drawing his loaded handgun from his waistband in a hotel room when his finger hit the trigger and the gun went off. The bullet hit Simpson's sleeping girlfriend, 23 year-old Amber Sungleton.
The bullet hit Amber in the lower-left abdomen, going through her pancreas. Joseph called 911 and emergency crews transported Amber to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Joseph Simpson has been charged with aggravated assault.

Glad she is O.K.. Glad they charged this moron for practicing with a loaded weapon. How stupid.
I'm glad Amber is alright, but the guy Joseph deserves a swift kick in the rear. He'll most likely plead the aggravated assault down to a misdemeanor. I hope the police at least keep his gun.
There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

They should keep him from ever getting a gun again. He doesn't deserve one. Glad she's ok.
