Another one of those 'With Friends Like this Who Needs Enemies' stories:
Quickdraw practice puts bullet in neighbor's house
A few thoughts here: First...shame on this guy for being dumb and letting this happen. Also, shame on this guy for firing a round, and then not only NOT showing some initiative to find out where his bullet went, but lying when the police showed up. Lying to the police when they initially show up is not going to start them down a path of understanding.
Final thought would be I'm a little bummed, but not surprised, that the police took the guys gun's from his house. I'm not sure if this is standard procedure in cases of an accidental discharge or not...or if it's just something they reserve for cases where the guy lies to the police when they show up.
