A 27-year-old Pearland, Texas man wanted to show his uncle his Glock semi-automatic handgun so they went into the bedroom where the gun was stored. The gun was loaded and the owner removed the magazine. However, he didn't realize that there was still a bullet in the chamber. As he pulled back the slide the gun discharged. The bullet went into his uncle's thigh, passed through his leg and continued into a bedroom dresser.
The gun was reportedly loaded with hollow-tip bullets but fortunately the bullet didn't expand when it passed through the victim's leg.
The victim was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released. Police classified the incident as an accident and said no charges will be filed.
