They say the family that shoots together stays together. What they don’t say: it’s really important to be sure of what – or who – is being shot. A pair of Howell, Michigan newlyweds drove themselves to the hospital yesterday after a gun cleaning mishap that injured both the blushing bride and the groom. With one round. . .
The gun appears to have been new to the groom, Dylan Gremore. A wedding present, perhaps? livingstondaily.com has the gory details:
“We believe he was trying to familiarize himself with the weapon,” which Dylan Gremore received as a gift from his wife Jan. 17, the sheriff explained. “He made the major mistake of not taking the clip out, which was fully loaded, before he racked it.”
When Dylan Gremore racked the gun, “he didn’t realize he put a round into the chamber,” Bezotte said.
Bezotte said police believe Dylan Gremore was bent over when he accidentally pulled the trigger, shooting his hand. The bullet then grazed his left forearm and leg, and then grazed his wife’s leg, the sheriff added.
Thankfully, neither member of the wedding party was seriously injured. And there are no reports of Tianna phoning a divorce attorney. Yet.
The silver lining: now they have another shiny new item to add to their haul of wedding gifts – a beautifully engraved IGOTD plaque for Dylan to display proudly in his man cave. Unlike that hideous Hello Kitty toaster Aunt Gladys bought for them, this one isn’t returnable.
