Secret Service agent shoots self in hip

A Secret Service agent who is assigned to the detail that protects Nancy Reagan unintentionally shot himself in the hip during a firearm training session in Camarillo, California. The agent, who has not been identified, was putting his gun back in his holster when the gun discharged. The bullet struck him in the hip. He has been hospitalized with a non-life threatening injury.
The division that protects the President's wife had rented part of a shooting range for a routine training session.
Ohh shoot.

The Secret Service hires only the most-highly skilled and trained firearms professionals. And yet, even with them there are accidents.

Says a lot, compared to the pro-gun extremist yokels who tell me they couldn't possibly make such mistakes because of all their "skill."
