A 52-year-old man at Bass Pro Shop in California was placing six guns on the counter, getting ready to use the store's indoor firing range. He noticed the hammer on one of the guns was pulled back so he pulled the trigger of the .45-caliber handgun. The magazine had been removed and he thought the gun was unloaded. But a bullet left in the chamber fired and struck a woman who was shopping in the store.
The woman was hit in the buttocks and taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
