A 20-year-old male and his friend had a .22 caliber pistol out and did not keep in mind the rules of handling a gun. During the course of handling the gun it was discharged and the bullet struck the friend in the upper thigh. The friend went to the hospital and was in good condition considering he had just been shot. There was nothing to suggest that it was anything more than poor gun safety.
