A vendor at a gun show in Colorado Springs, Colorado was setting up his products when one of his guns unintentionally discharged. The bullet hit the floor and "shattered upon impact, resulting in no damage and no injuries," said police.
The vendor said the weapon was test fired earlier in the week because it had been returned to him as defective After test firing the weapon, the vendor removed the magazine but neglected to check to see if there was a bullet left in the chamber. The vendor said the weapon discharged when the back of the gun was bumped during set up.
The vendor faces charges of prohibited use of a weapon and was asked to leave the gun show.
The organizer of the gun show said that these unintentional discharge incidents happen occasionally at gun shows and in homes. He said he doesn't see any reason to change safety procedures at future shows.
