Organisers of a public relations event at a German gun club were left red-faced on Sunday, after a woman accidentally shot a man in the foot. Both had to be treated for injuries.
The embarrassing - and painful - accident happened at the open day at a shooting club in the small town of Sallgast in the state of Brandenburg, eastern Germany, the Express newspaper reported.
The club took the ill-fated decision to allow visitors without firearms licenses to try out guns under professional supervision.
One female visitor was handling a gun when it went off in her hand and grazed the toe of a man standing nearby, the Frankfurt (Oder) police said in a statement.
The woman - who did not have a license - also suffered slight burns.
